Following it’s acclaimed London season, I Loved Lucy – Lee Tannen’s play based on his personal relationship with comedic superstar Lucille Ball will return to Jermyn Street Theatre for a further three week season.
Sandra Dickinson will reprise the role of Lucille Ball for the return run which runs from Wednesday 6 to Saturday 23 April 2016.
She will be joined in the production by new co-star Stefan Menaul as Lee. He graduated from Guildhall School of Music & Drama and was in the West End cast of Dirty Dancing. His other credits include Ice Cream and The Ritual of Thwarted Desire at Southwark Playhouse and Off the Cliff at Theatre503. Stefan has just finished filming the US TV series Berlin Station with Richard Armitage and Rhys Ifans.
The production is directed by Jermyn Street Theatre’s Artistic Director Anthony Biggs.
Based on his best selling memoir, Lee Tannen’s funny, bitter-sweet play reveals the real-life Lucy and what is was like being her friend to the end. Most people who wrote about Lucy never even met her. They relied on others to fill in the blanks. Lee relied solely on Lucy. And he paints a rich personal portrait that can only add to our love of a legend.
