Segerstrom Center social media followers voted for their favorite Lucy moment as part of the Center’s audience engagement photo opportunity. The clear winner by a heaping spoonful was the Vitameatavegamin skit from the “Lucy Does a TV Commercial” episode that first aired on May 5, 1952. Patrons attending I LOVE LUCY® LIVE ON STAGE at Segerstrom Center for the Arts (March 18 – 23) are invited to pose at our specially made set, complete with props to recreate this legendary commercial.
Guests are encouraged to share photos via social media, and one lucky winner will receive a prize pack from the show at the end of the run. To enter, participants must tag @SegerstromArts and @ILoveLucyLive and include the hashtag #OCLovesLucy.
Also on-hand will be our Stage & Screen exhibit showcasing behind-the-scenes trivia from the beloved TV show. All audience engagement activities will take place one hour prior to curtain and during intermission.
An “out-of-body experience for Lucy fans” according to Showbiz Chicago, I LOVE LUCY® LIVE ON STAGE takes audience members back to 1952 as members of the Desilu Playhouse studio audience where they await the filming of two hilarious and oh-so-familiar I LOVE LUCY episodes, “The Benefit” and “Lucy Has Her Eyes Examined.” I LOVE LUCY® LIVE ON STAGE is staged and directed by Rick Sparks and adapted for the stage with new material by Kim Flagg and Rick Sparks.
