Make your way to The Arts theatre in the capital to experience a show that's making friends and influencing people wherever it plays, an exceptionally funny, heart-warming and outrageous piece showcasing the real Lucille Ball. It's by Lee Tannen an it's already raising excitement, a must-see of a portrayal.
The vintage TV show was called I Love Lucy. This play is I Loved Lucy, and it reveals Lucille Ball as an old woman, in all her glory, for the first time, written by a man who actually knew her rather well. Sandra Dickinson reprises a role she was critically acclaimed for, based on Tannen’s best selling memoir. This is a funny play but it's also bitter-sweet, delving deep into the woman behind the shiny show business exterior and revealing what it was like to be her close friend.
Expect a highly personal portrait, one which brings the subject of the show – a genuine icon of her times – to glittering life once again. Ball's public face is well known, but was that the real woman or a mask?
The last decade of Ball's life is cloaked in mystery. She stayed out of the spotlight, and spent an awful lot of time gambling, playing her favourite game backgammon. During those lost years Lee Tannen became Lucy’s confidant, accompanying her around Beverly Hills and Palm Springs where she had houses, entertaining her in New York city and travelling far and wide with her. His rich, affectionate portrait of the real woman behind the star is a lovely thing to behold, a keen and beautifully crafted insight into a genuine Hollywood legend.
The cast? Sandra Dickinson and Matthew Scott. The creatives? It's directed by Anthony Biggs, the set and costume designer is Gregor Donnelly, the lighting comes from Tim Mascall and the sound from Gareth McLeod. Dickinson's treatment of the role is faultless. According to Stage Review it's “a sublime, fabulous, tour de force performance.” The Stage calls it “Achingly funny”. Grab tickets now before they go!
