I Love Lucy® Live On Stage closes out the FSCJ Artist Series’ 2014-2015 Broadway in Jacksonville Season from March 17-22.

You experience, firsthand, the filming of two hilarious “I Love Lucy” episodes, complete with a charming host, ’50s style harmonies from the Crystaltone Singers, and the sidesplitting antics of America’s favorite foursome – Lucy, Ricky, Fred and Ethel. The show runs for one-hundred minutes straight through, no intermission. Great seats are still available for all eight performances, and tickets start at $32.50.
