Lucy Ricardo

Lucy Ricardo is the main character in the classic 50s sitcom, I Love Lucy. Portrayed by the legendary Lucille Ball, she resides in the upper east side of Manhattan with her husband, Ricky. Despite the societal expectation to remain dutiful and domestic, she longs for a career in show business. As a result, she concocts hilarious schemes to swindle the spotlight. Many of these plots include physical comedy and exaggerated dramatics, such as the iconic candy factory scene. It’s no wonder Wanda put herself in Lucy’s shoes in Westview.
