a clip of Lucie's reviews for her "Latin Roots" show after opening night at Feinstein's in NYC:
Lucie Arnaz is working on a film to depict the real life behind 'I Love Lucy'
After a lifetime of shadow boxing, Lucie Arnaz is finally celebrating her late parents.
She’s executive producer of a new film called “Lucy and Desi,” starring Cate Blanchett as TV's queen of comedy, Lucille Ball. Oscar- and Emmy-winner Aaron Sorkin is writing the narrative about a couple trying to juggle family and their 1950s sit-com, “I Love Lucy.”
She’ll also salute her father, Cuban bandleader and actor Desi Arnaz, in an April 3 benefit for the College of the Desert Foundation at the McCallum Theatre, titled, “Stepping Out For College of the Desert: Lucie Arnaz – Latin Roots.” (Full article here)

Reviewed by Steve Murray for Cabaret Scenes
Sometimes it’s fun to stop being a reviewer and just be a fan, and I am a huge fan of Lucie Arnaz. She’s a consummate performer, born to a magical lineage (Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz) and the associated advantages of rubbing elbows with Hollywood and musical legends. Arnaz is a dynamo, using her solid acting chops to add multiple dimensions to each number in a show she said “showed the arc of romance.”
Indeed, she did show all aspects of relationships with her smart song choices. (Full Article)

SEVEN QUESTIONS FOR LUCIE ARNAZ
Many think of you as an actress, but it seems you’ve been concentrating more on music lately.
For 27 years I have been doing concerts and performing in nightclubs, and I love, love, love doing it. I wouldn’t be doing it if it wasn’t for my father’s influence. When he died, I found tapes of his, some original recordings that no one had unless they were real collectors. I started listening to them and hearing what his big-band days were like. I wanted to be him! I wanted to have a band and perform like him. (Full Article)

Lucie Arnaz is for real - Daughter of famous parents does not disappoint
Lucie Arnaz is no light weight. As someone who is the daughter of two famous entertainers, she has the immediate problem of being tagged a nostalgia act, or worse, someone riding the coattails of her parents.
But there is not magic dust in the RRAZZ Room, even though it can sometimes seem like it. Lucie is a very professional singer because she has paid her dues. (Full Article)
