What’s better than watching “I Love Lucy” reruns on TV Land? I Love Lucy Live on Stage, natch. Take a trip down memory lane with this behind-the-scenes Broadway comedy where you’ll become a member of the Desilu Playhouse studio audience during the filming of two of the most memorable episodes from the sitcom’s 1952 season. The robust cast includes strong performances by leads playing the Ricardos and the Mertzes (who steal the show, by the way), an affable announcer and even a seven-piece band that backs up “Ricky” at the Tropicana Nightclub. It’s time to Babalu, baby! Dec. 26-29 at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, Merriam Theater. Tickets, $25-$75. —S.E.
