CHICAGO — March 21, 2012 — Broadway In Chicago is thrilled to announce I LOVE LUCY® LIVE ON STAGE, the brand new hit musical stage show adapted from the long-running, beloved television program, starring Lucy, Ricky, Fred and Ethel: America's favorite foursome, in Chicago for the very first time at the Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place (175 East Chestnut St.) Sep. 12 — Nov. 11, 2012.

Imagine stepping back in time and into the Desilu Playhouse soundstage! It's 1952 and you are a member of the studio audience awaiting the filming of two hilarious and oh so familiar "I Love Lucy" episodes. A charming host entertains and enlightens you to the behind-the-scenes filming process, the 1950s hi-fidelity technology, and this brand new thing called 'television.' The episodes begin and you witness, firsthand, the side-splitting antics of that crazy redhead in the Ricardos' New York apartment and thrill to the Cuban sounds of "The Ricky Ricardo Orchestra" at the famed Tropicana Nightclub. In between scenes? The Crystaltone Singers perform live advertising jingles of the show's newest sponsors in perfect '50s style harmony. Can you say 'Brylcreem'?!

I LOVE LUCY® LIVE ON STAGE, under a license from CBS Consumer Products, premiered in Los Angeles 2011 to stellar reviews, prestigious awards and sold out crowds for its initial five-month run. According to John Soltes at HollywoodSoapbox.com, "One of the hardest LA tickets to snag is to I LOVE LUCY® LIVE ON STAGE. If you're a fan of Lucy, Ricky, Fred and Ethel, this is a must-see experience."

LA Examiner's Ron Irwin says I LOVE LUCY® LIVE ON STAGE is "an absolutely brilliant and utterly engaging tribute to that iconic television show."

TV Guide's William Keck says I LOVE LUCY® LIVE ON STAGE is "the most entertaining stage production I've seen in years — including Broadway!" Examiner.com adds, "… I frankly cannot remember any performance in any venue in recent time that caused me to laugh so long and so hard. But it also clearly told the story and paid proper homage to the original 'I Love Lucy®.' When it ended I was filled with warmth and joy…"

It seems the truth is in the title. Whether young or old, EVERYBODY really does LOVE LUCY!

I LOVE LUCY® LIVE ON STAGE is staged and directed by Rick Sparks, and presented by S. Kahn Presents and Millrock Company.
