Lucies Bio as it appears in this Playbill:|
Lucie Arnaz (Bella) returns to Broadway the way she first arrived, in a Neil
Simon show. Since 1979, when she opened in "They're Playing Our Song" (right next door at the Imperial Theatre!), Lucie has co-starred with Laurence Olivier and Neil Diamond in her film debut "The Jazz Singer"; starred in several television movies, including "The Mating Season", "Washington Mistress" and "Who Gets the Friends"; and two of her own television series, "The Lucie Arnaz Show" in 1985 and "Sons and Daughters" in 1991. Her theatre credits have included national tours with "Who's Life Is It Anyway?", "Social Security" with her husband Laurence Luckinbill and "My One and Only" with her guru Tommy Tune. She is the winner of the L.A. Drama Critics Circle Award, Outer Critics Circle Award and the Theatre World Award for her performance in "They're Playing Our Song", and a recipient of the prestigious Sarah Siddons Award for "My One and Only". Highlights of her eclectic resume include playing Gittel Mosca for Michael Bennett in "Seesaw", performing the opening number of the Academy Awards show and performing at the White House. Lucie recently appeared at New York's glamorous Rainbow and Stars, and toured the U.S. and Europe with her critically acclaimed nightclub act. However, the credits for which she is most proud are playing wife for 12 seasons to Larry and mommie to Simon and Joe and Kate!
