Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.
Welcome! So happy you found me here where you can find ALL things LUCIE........with an IE!
Thrilled to be in rehearsal for the First National Tour of probably my favorite show on Broadway right now – PIPPIN! I will only be playing selected dates on this very extensive national tour, so if you want to catch me singing and swinging from a trapeze, check the schedule on my calendar page for when and where you can do that.
This 2013 Tony Award Winner for Best Musical Revival is a brilliant new production directed by Diane Paulus, with some of Broadway’s best music and lyrics from the ultra prolific Stephen Schwartz, combined with Bob Fosse choreography and filled with some of the most amazing acrobatic talent you will ever see. I am humbled to even share the stage with these first rate performers. Not to mention John Rubinstein – the original Pippin – playing Charles, his father the king, in this revival. The history alone associated with his presence on stage with us is palpable.
So, friends, come find me, you’ll have a blast!
Don't forget I have two CDs available now too: JUST IN TIME (Concord Jazz 1993) and LATIN ROOTS (LML Music 2010).
I am also booking my LATIN ROOTS big band show. Check my calendar page for dates (Laguna, Arizona, etc.) And I hope to bring that big show into Las Vegas soon, too.
It's a story I've been longing to tell, the genesis of my love affair with music and a tribute to the man who introduced it to me.
Here's a taste:
Meantime, from my merchandise dept. let me tell you, if you haven’t already, checked out my LATIN ROOTS CD, please do. I am so darn proud of this one, and I think there will be many songs you will want to listen to again and again.
Also, I am proud to announce all six seasons of HERE’S LUCY (the series I co-starred in with my mother, Lucille Ball, and my brother, Desi Arnaz, Jr.), are now available on DVD courtesy of MPI. The wrap around commentaries on these are priceless.
In Family News:
My son, Joe Luckinbill, is still promoting his newest CD (artwork above, left), "Lugenbühl" and I think it is even better than the first. Some excellent writing and production on these new songs. I hope you will check it out. And his music has also been used in films and television now,too. Most exciting, Joe relocated and started his own recording studio in Los Angeles canvassing other new talent to produce. Check him out at joeluckinbill.com, on Facebook and on MySpace. You go, Joe!!!
My multi talented daughter, Katharine Luckinbill, enjoys her busy life in the advertising world and also continues to post an online advice column on KATE-BOOK.com that is not only entertaining, but full of some solid tips on so many topics about which I had no clue she was so savvy. She is a heck of a good writer that girl.
And, my üüüüber talented partner in crime and passion (and the father of all these brilliant babes), Laurence Luckinbill, has a fantastic website now complete with hours of performance videos (welcome to the 21st Century, Lar!!) created by our multi-talented son / stepson, Ben Luckinbill.
Let's not forget the first Luckinbill brother, Nick. He is a composer and music producer and recently had one of his tracks featured in a commercial during the Olympics!
What a fabulous bunch of talented artists are these children we made. Better than that, they are ALL great people trying to do something to enrich the happiness quotient on the planet.
Safe and Happy Holidays Everyone!
