Following its successful runs in London last year, it has been announced that Lee Tannen’s play will take up residence at the Arts Theatre from the 19th July for a limited season.
Based on Lee Tannen’s best-selling memoir, I Loved Lucy is a personal portrait of Lucille Ball, getting to grips with what she was really like as a person and how she chose to live the end of her life out of the spotlight.
Following two acclaimed runs at the Jermyn Street Theatre last year, Anthony Biggs brings the production to the Arts Theatre for a limited season only and will see Sandra Dickinson returns to her critically acclaimed role as Lucille Ball.
The production will mark the London debut of Matthew Scott as Lee, who has most recently appeared in the Broadway production of An American in Paris. His other credits include Sondheim On Sondheim, A Catered Affair and the original company of Jersey Boys.
Sandra Dickinson’s previous credits on the London stage include Singin’ In The Rain, A Streetcar Named Desire, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Not About Nightingales (NT and Broadway) and Orpheus Descending (Donmar Warehouse).
Director Anthony Biggs is the Artistic director of the Jermyn Street Theatre. His previous credits include Lillian Hellman’s The Autumn Garden, Eugene O’Neill’s The First Man and Charles Morgan’s The River Line.
The production features set and costume design by Gregor Donnelly, lighting by Tim Mascall, Gareth McLeod and is produced by Gary DiMauro.
