The Lucille Ball Comedy Festival presents
Lucy Radio Comedy Live Onstage, directed by Gregg Oppenheimer!
Aug 3, 2013
Willow Bay Theater
21 East 3rd Street, 4th Fl.
By popular demand, Gregg Oppenheimer, son of I Love Lucy creator Jess Oppenheimer, returns to Jamestown to direct more radio comedy onstage at the Crown Theatre. Gregg's live radio shows at previous Festivals have been such a huge success—so much so that some have been broadcast nationwide over SiriusXM™ Radio.
This year's laugh-filled show opens with another 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". Then another hilarious episode of Lucille Ball's radio sitcom, My Favorite Husband: "Liz Changes Her Mind" (later adapted for TV into the I Love Lucy episode "Lucy Changes Her Mind.")
Both shows will be performed in the style of old-time radio, with the actors standing at microphones on the stage, plus sound effects and music, including live singers. The total running time of the show is about 1 hour. This is one event at the Festival that you won't want to miss!
