Peil and Fuqua to Star in Free Reading of I Loved Lucy at the Rubicon

News   Peil and Fuqua to Star in Free Reading of I Loved Lucy at the Rubicon Rubicon Theatre Company's Play's-in-Progress series will continue with a free reading of Lee Tannen's I Loved Lucy Feb. 9 at the Ventura, CA, venue.

Sheryl Kaller will direct the 7 PM reading, which will feature the talents of Mary Beth Peil (Sunday in the Park with George, "Dawson's Creek) as Lucille Ball with Joseph Fuqua (Hamlet, All My Sons) as Lee Tannen. I Loved Lucy, according to press notes, "tells the story of the intimate relationship between Lucy and Lee (who was distantly related to Lucy) during the last decade of her life, a period which has come to be known as the 'lost Lucy years,' a time spent mainly at home out of the television spotlight and around a backgammon table. It's a candid, funny and poignant look at arguably the most recognizable face on the planet told by a man 40 years her junior who became her best pal and closest confidante at the end of her life."
