LUCY LOVES DESI:  A FUNNY THING HAPPENDED ON THE WAY TO THE SITCOM is the hilarious and true story behind one of America’s most beloved TV comedies.  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 this witty, fast-paced tale of Lucy and Desi’s battles with CBS over the pioneering ideas that changed the face of television forever.  Written for L.A. Theatre Works, this radio style production tells all the stories with as much heart and humor as an episode of I Love Lucy itself.
