Hey everyone! Travis here with some more great things to do in Tampa Bay! The David A. Straz Jr. Center for the Performing Arts really is one of Tampa's biggest treasures, and it's because of the Tampa Bay entertainment I'm about to tell you about.
Now you can spend an "Evening With Lucille Ball" by attending..wait for it...An Evening With Lucille Ball: Thank You For Asking from Jan. 5-17.
It's playing at the Center's Jaeb Theater. Here's a brief description about the show:
Directed by Lucie Arnaz, this touching, funny and uplifting one-woman play is created and performed by Suzanne LaRusch and written by LaRusch and Arnaz.
Lucy guides us through the lifetime of personal memories inspiring her timeless sketches on I Love Lucy, her 30-year television career and never-before heard personal recollections about her tempestuous and complicated marriage to Cuban bandleader turned impresario, Desi Arnaz.
Crafted in the spirit of the amusing lectures Lucy enjoyed giving throughout her career, the evening recreates the comic genius and the magic behind the “Queen of Comedy.” It’s an evening with the REAL Lucy, as you’ve never seen her before.
Plus, you can joing the Center for special talkbacks with Lucie Arnaz following the performances on Jan. 14, 15 and 16.
Like I said, it's playing Jan. 5 - 17, and regularly priced tickets start at $36.50. Show times are: Tues. 7:30 p.m., Wed. 7:30 p.m., Thurs. 2 and 7:30 p.m., Fri. 7:30 p.m., Sat. 2 and 7:30 p.m., Sun. 4 p.m.
