Lucy Fest: The Lucille Ball Comedy Festival presents
Live "Lucy" Radio Show
Aug 4, 2012
Doors: 3:30 PM
By popular demand, Gregg Oppenheimer, son of "I Love Lucy" creator Jess Oppenheimer, returns to Jamestown to direct more live "radio" comedy on the stage of the beautiful Reg Lenna Theater. Last year, on this same stage, the world premiere of his original production "I Love Lucy: The Untold Story" was a huge success--so much so that it was the subject of four nationwide broadcasts on SiriusXM Radio. This year's laugh-filled show opens with another original behind-the-scenes look at the creation of "I Love Lucy"--the world premiere of Gregg Oppenheimer's "Finding Fred and Ethel." Plus a side-splitting episode of Jess Oppenheimer's first sitcom, "Baby Snooks"--the show that inspired him to create the character we know as "Lucy Ricardo." And to round out the program, another hilarious episode of Lucille Ball's radio sitcom, "My Favorite Husband: Valentine's Day" (later adapted for TV into the "I Love Lucy" episode "Lucy Plays Cupid").
