I Loved Lucy

After Lucy and Desi broke the Nation’s hearts with their divorce, Lucille Ball married her producer in 1961. Her new husband’s cousin, Lee Tannen, became Lucy’s dear friend in the last decade of her life—despite their 40-year age difference. Few people knew her the way Lee did, outside the spotlight but not past her prime. The tales of his friendship with America’s comic sweetheart line the pages of I Loved Lucy, Tannen’s book chronicling their time together. Now adapted for the stage, this funny, bitter-sweet, tender portrait examines the real woman versus the television persona that propelled her to super-stardom. Directed by Todd Weeks, I Loved Lucy adds vibrant color to the legendary actress we all thought we knew so well.
