Photos: I LOVED LUCY Plays Benefit Performance for Abingdon Theatre Company

Direct from two sold out critically acclaimed London productions I Loved Lucy gave a one night only benefit performance for Abingdon Theatre Company at The Lucille Lortel Theatre on July 21 and BroadwayWorld was there.

Directed by Anthony Biggs, artistic director of London's prestigious Jermyn Street Theatre and starring Sandra Dickinson as Lucy and Sterfan Menaul as Lee, I Loved Lucy tells the funny, touching and bittersweet story of Lee Tannen's relationship with the iconic Lucille Ball in the last decade of her life. It's a personal close-up look at the private side of arguably the most famous comic of the 20th century and how she chose to live her life out of the spotlight. And what is was like for Lee Tannen who remained one of her closest friends...to the end.
