As we mentioned last month, one of the theater opportunities here in Melrose Village is “I Love Lucy” Live on Stage at the Greenway Court Theater, on Fairfax Ave south of Melrose Ave.
The Greenway Court Theater is part of the Greenway Arts Alliance, a non-profit that, among other things, supports arts education, and, in various ways, supports Fairfax High School. The Melrose Trading Post at Fairfax High on Sundays came from the Greenway Arts Alliance.
One of our correspondents attended a performance yesterday:
“I just saw the show “I Love Lucy Live on Stage” The premise is that we are in the audience of a filming of two “I Love Lucy” episodes – and they are based on two actual episodes. Then they add musical commercials and other extras. There’s a live band at the “Tropicana” and a lot of fun. The performances and the production are great. I recommend it.”
There are a few preview performances left, and then regular performances start October 1st, running through December.
