"There are certain irrefutable facts In life. The sun rises in the east and sets in the west, any breakfast eaten tastes better in Sunday, naps are better on the sofa than in bed, and you will always leave a Lucie Arnaz show happier than when you came in.” – Stephen Mosher BroadwayWorld.com

With anecdotes and fond memories about her co-stars, directors and musical collaborators, Lucie offers iconic songs and hidden treasures from some of Broadway’s greatest shows and a look at the backstage magic it takes to create them.

She has performed the opening number on The Academy Awards and at the White House. CDs include Just in Time (Concord Jazz), Latin Roots (LML Music) and Lucie: LIVE! At Feinstein’s at The Nkko.

In 1985 she starred in her own series, The Lucie Arnaz Show, and in 1989 in the critically acclaimed Sons and Daughters, all on CBS. On film, Lucie co-starred in The Jazz Singer with Neil Diamond and Sir Laurence Olivier, in several made-for-television movies including Who Killed the Black Dahlia, Washington Mistress, The Mating Season, Who Gets the Friends? with Jill Clayburgh, and Down to You with Freddie Prinze, Jr. and Henry Winkler.

Lucie’s heart has always been in the live performance arena, and she has been the recipient of a number of theatrical awards including The Los Angeles Drama Critic’s Circle Award, Outer Critic’s Circle Award, Theater World Award, and Chicago’s famed Sarah Siddons Award for creating the roles of Kathy in the west-coast premiere of Vanities at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles, Annie Oakley in the Jones Beach production of Irving Berlin’s Annie Get Your Gun, for her Broadway debut as Sonia Wolsk in Neil Simon and Marvin Hamlisch’s They’re Playing My Song, in national tours of Seesaw (directed by Michael Bennett), Social Security (directed by Mike Nichols), opposite her husband, actor/writer Laurence Luckinbill in Whose Life is it Anyway? and opposite Tommy Tune in My One and Only. In 2014, Lucie was named broadway.com’s DC’s Best Supporting Actress in a Musical for her work as Berthe, the trapeze hanging, daredevil grandma in the First National Company of Pippin.

Lucie received rave reviews for her portrayals of Bella in Neil Simon’s Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning Broadway production of Lost in Yonkers, Maria Callas in Terrance McNally’s Tony Award-winning, Master Class, and as Ruth in the pre-Broadway revival of Wonderful Town. Ms. Arnaz made her UK debut as Alexandra in the Cameron Mackintosh musical, The Witches of Eastwick, and then returned to Broadway in 2006 as Muriel in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and in Pippin (2014).
