Lucie Arnaz Coming to Manhatten

In celebration of her lastest release, Latin Roots, Lucie Arnaz will perform and sign autographs Friday, March 26th at 12pm at J&R Music World, 23 Park Row, Manhattan, New York, NY

Growing up in the public eye with parents Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz and brother Desi Arnaz IV, Lucie has cemented her own footprints in history as an actress, singer, dancer, business executive, producer, director, and Broadway star.

In 1968, at age seventeen, she became a series regular on Here’s Lucy, co-starring with her brother Desi Arnaz, Jr. Since then, Lucie has made a handful of feature films, including the 1980 feature film “The Jazz Singer” with Neil Diamond and her most recent feature film, “Down To You”, with Henry Winkler and Freddie Prinze Jr. which premiered on January 21st, 2000. Her most successful and well-renowned play was the Neil Simon/Marvin Hamlisch hit musical “They’re Playing Our Song”, where Lucie played the lovable goof, Sonia Wolsk, receiving outstanding reviews.

Lucie has had so many other stage, theatre and Broadway hits throughout the years, some of which include - “Vanities” (Kathy); “Seesaw” (Gittle Mosca); “Annie Get Your Gun” (Annie Oakley); “Educating Rita” (with husband, Laurence Luckinbill); “Who’s Life is it Anyway?”; “The Guardsman”; the internationally acclaimed Gershwin musical “My One and Only”; “Social Security”; the Tony Award winning “Lost in Yonkers” (Bella); “Grace and Glorie” (Glorie); “Wonderful Town” (Ruth, she “revamped” in LA, October, 1999); “Master Class” (Maria Callas); the esteemed “The Witches of Eastwick,” playing the role of Alex (as played by Cher in the movie version), in London’s prestigious West End; and her most recent successes, “Once Removed,” “A Picasso” and “Ann & Debbie,” all three of which Lucie starred in at the Coconut Grove Playhouse in Miami, Florida. Lucie has just summed up a very memorable run in “Sonia Flew,” also at the Coconut Grove Playhouse, which nearly didn’t go ahead after financial troubles threatened not only the run of the play, but the future of the historic playhouse.

Lucie can also be heard on several other music CDs, including the soundtrack to her hit Broadway musical, Simon and Hamlisch’s “They’re Playing Our Song”.

  1. I didn't know she was in the business too. Does she sing Cuban songs too?
