I Love Lucy

Posted by Emma M-L on January 26, 2015 at 2:16am 0 Comments

As someone with little to no experience with the original television show I Love Lucy I might not expect to like I Love Lucy: Live On Stage very much. However this was not the case. With only one episode of the iconic television program under my belt in preparation for my night at the theater, I found myself enjoying the live show none the less.

Of course, the original cast was not fit for the part, but their younger theatrical counterparts were sure up for the job! The show starts off with the host, Maury…

    What is SpotLight's Critical Reviewer Program?

    SpotLight's Critical Review Program gives high school students the opportunity to attend and review touring Broadway productions and SpotLight school productions. Critical Review is part of a larger curriculum that teaches communication skills, and enhances critical thinking and creative response. As part of this program, students receive study guides and press kits before the show, learn from experts including local theatre critics, playwrights and actors who discuss topics from lighting design to choreography, and in some cases, have expanded access to the Broadway touring cast and crew. 

    This program is funded through the generous support of Fred and Ann Moore.
