Press Release: Brittany Loves Lucy at Cotuit Center for the Arts

Jun. 17, 2019 / Press Release

Cotuit Center for the Arts presents “Brittany Loves Lucy” in the Black Box Theater July 11 to 28. Performances are Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 PM and Sunday at 4 PM.

“Brittany Loves Lucy” is a homemade, one-woman spectacular. Brittany Halls takes on every character and every line of I Love Lucy's infamous "Lucy Does a TV Commercial" episode in which Lucy finagles her way onto Ricky's television show and has too many spoonfuls of the alcohol-filled Vitameatavegamin.

With a few simple set pieces and props, the world of “I Love Lucy” is recreated, reminding us all that comedy is timeless.

Brittany Halls is a New York-based actor and improviser who hails from Boston.

“Lucy Does a TV Commercial” aired in May 1952 and is considered the most famous episode of “I Love Lucy,” ranking number 2 in TV Guide’s “100 Greatest Episodes of All Time in 1997, and number 4 on the 2009 list.

Tickets are $20, $15 for members. For more information, and to purchase tickets, visit www.artsonthecape.org, or call 508-428-0669. Cotuit Center for the Arts is at 4404 Route 28 in Cotuit.
