MANHATTAN — The 2022-2023 McCain Performance Series presents "Lucy Loves Desi: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Sitcom" at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 13, in Kansas State University's McCain Auditorium.
"Lucy Loves Desi: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Sitcom" is the hilarious and true story behind the series "I Love Lucy," one of America's most beloved TV comedies and one of the most influential shows in television history. Lucille Ball paved the way for many of today's top comediennes while forcing Hollywood to begin dealing with the rising power and influence of women artists both on-screen and behind the scenes. Playwright Gregg Oppenheimer, son of "I Love Lucy" creator Jess Oppenheimer, spins the fast-paced tale of Lucy and Desi's battles with CBS over the pioneering ideas that changed the face of television forever.
Tickets are available online at mccain.k-state.edu or at the ticket office in the newly expanded McCain lobby from noon to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Friday. Tickets are also available by phone at 785-532-6428 during the same hours. Kids 17 and younger get 50% off the general price of admission.
