Pegasus Theatre presents The Cuban and the Redhead
The Cuban and the Redhead is a new musical about Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball, with book, music and lyrics by Robert Bartley and Danny Whitman.
Escaping bloodshed in Cuba, a young man sets sail on a turbulent journey that leads him all the way to Hollywood and into the arms of a fiery, redheaded movie star named Lucille Ball. Desi and Lucy put their egos and dreams of stardom on the line in a gamble to save one thing - their marriage - risking it all on an untested and floundering new medium called television. Can these two star-crossed lovers blaze a path that defies Hollywood and history to be together?
