“I Love Lucy, Live On Stage,” currently running at the Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place, 175 E. Chestnut, will be taking a brief “station break” after its Nov. 11 performance. The production, a music-infused reinvention of two classic “I Love Lucy” programs, will close down temporarily to make room for the previously scheduled “Potted Potter — The Unauthorized Harry Experience,” the 70-minute frolic featuring two actors, Daniel Clarkson and Jeff Turner, supplying the ultimate comic condensation of J.K. Rowling’s seven Harry Potter books (running Nov. 13-Dec. 23).
“I Love Lucy” will then reopen Dec. 29, (for an extended run through March 3), with the same principal actors playing Lucy, Desi, Ethel and Fred.
