So each night, after playing Lucy Ricardo on the stage of Chicago’s Broadway Playhouse, Irwin replays one of the original 179 “I Love Lucy” episodes on DVD.

Fort Worth — Neither one of them was born when I Love Lucy was the "must-see TV" of its day in the 1950s, yet they have played one of America's most beloved couples, Lucy and Ricky Ricardo, about 400 times in front of a live audience in I Love Lucy Live on Stage, making its Texas premiere at Bass Performance Hall March 11-16, presented by Performing Arts Fort Worth. One of my songs was a solo, and now I have backup dancers. The shows are written so well, and the physical comedy and the musicality with having the Tropicana and having them sing and perform just adds to that.

This character is so beloved, I thought if I don't do her justice, there will be outrage. I came from doing a lot of sketch and improv, and even right out of college, on my résumé under "special skills," I had put "wildly unafraid." We hope that energy carries to the audience. In L.A., Irwin performs frequently on the sketch comedy scene — “little skits, three to five minutes long, often character-based, with a funny moment, often physical.” Irwin also does a lot of work for animation, including many of the utility voices in “SpongeBob SquarePants.” The vocal flexibility demanded by such work was actually a help, she says, in finding Lucy’s voice. But by learning all I could know about what made her tick and bringing that to the show, what I have been astounded by has been the love and the support from the audiences.

According to our records, Sirena Irwin is possibly single. There aren’t many people who could get away with the argument that watching old “I Love Lucy” re-runs is homework, but Sirena Irwin is one. One is herself, to be who she wants to be, the performer she never got to truly be.
“I’m always amazed by something very — I want to say humble — very grounded in her.
Sirena Irwin is a sketch as Beverly the trend jumping Greek chorus and Jill St. John an absolute scene stealer as Alan's boozy wise mom but the entire cast even in the smallest roles are splendid. I was scared at first—everyone has an attachment to these people and what has been done before, so we want to honor that and the I Love Lucy show and the original work that the actors put in on it.
It's changed for me personally because I am always reading a book about the show, so I have a deepening knowledge of the show. “We all have to work at it. BM: It changes from time to time.
