Enter to Win Tickets to “I Love Lucy Live on Stage” Coming to the Warner Theatre


4/30/13 UPDATE: This show has, unfortunately, been canceled.

“Luuucy, I’m home!” 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 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 sidesplitting antics of that crazy redhead in the Ricardos’ New York apartment and 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,” 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, is coming to DC for the very first time at the Warner Theatre from June 1 – June 14. It premiered in Los Angeles in 2011 to stellar reviews, prestigious awards, and sold out crowds for its initial five-month run. And it’s recommended for audiences young and old (though I think older children would likely enjoy it more).

Many performances will take place over it’s two week run every day of the week except for Monday. Tickets start at $40.

GIVEAWAY: I have a four-pack of tickets up for grabs to the show on Tuesday, June 4, at 8pm, perfect for a double date night or a special late evening with the kids. For a chance to win the tickets, leave a comment below. To be eligible, you must “like” KidFriendly DC on Facebook, and you can earn an extra entry by following on Twitter. This giveaway will run through next week, and a winner will be drawn at random shortly thereafter. Good luck!
