Happy Birthday to a true original, Lucille Ball. I first fell hard for Lucy when I was 13 and embarked on a journey to learn as much as I could about this remarkable woman. That journey continues but over the years it has brought me laughter, comfort, joy, and friends. Whenever I come home from Jamestown, as I did yesterday, it gives me a renewed prospective on the lady and what she means in my life, so today I reflect on how big an impact she has made on it. Cheers to a woman who was above all brave and fearless in whatever she set out to do and continues to inspire me today.
Coming Soon – My photos from her Birthday Celebration in Jamestown, NY.
She made us laugh in Cheers and Frazier, she dazzled us on Broadway in Chicago, now we proudly welcome her to Night of the Stars.

What is “We Love Lucy”?
“We Love Lucy” is a documentary short detailing the legacy and lasting fanbase of Lucille Ball and “I Love Lucy.” We follow Judith Edlund’s relationship with the sitcom from a young age, and through her tell a story involving the ways in which “I Love Lucy” impacted her growing up. We go on to tell the stories of other people who were greatly impacted by “I Love Lucy,” and ultimately try to understand the magic behind a show that has lasted so far beyond it’s time.
