LUCIE ARNAZ - "I GOT THE JOB!" : Songs From My Musical Past


July 25th


Saratoga Track Season starts off with a bang at the 801 Supper Club with show biz Royalty!  We are excited that the great LUCIE ARNAZ will share her evening with us bringing her new cabaret show:  “I Got The Job: Songs From My Musical Past.”


Lucie Arnaz is the daughter of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, the stars of the TV classic, I Love Lucy. Following some walk-ons on her mother’s television series, The Lucy Show, Arnaz made her TV debut playing the role of Kim Carter, with a continuing role on the series, Here’s Lucy — a show which ran for six seasons. Over the years, she also appeared on such popular TV programs as Fantasy Island; Murder, She Wrote; Marcus Welby, MD; Sons and Daughters; and Law & Order.


Arnaz made her Broadway debut in 1979 in They’re Playing Our Song, for which she won both the Theater World Award and the LA Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Actress in a Musical. She also toured with Tommy Tune in the international company of My One and Only, and appeared in such Broadway productions as Neil Simon’s Lost in Yonkers, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, and the recent revival of Pippin.


No stranger to films, Arnaz starred with Neil Diamond and Laurence Olivier in The Jazz Singer, for which she earned a Golden Globe award nomination for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture.


As a singer, Arnaz released her first album, Just in Time, on the Concord Jazz label, and her latest release is entitled Lucie Live! These days, she tours the country with her show, I Got the Job: Songs from my Musical Past — a tribute to her theater roots and the various roles she’s played — in addition to a show featuring selections from her recording, Latin Roots.


Marilyn Lester for Cabaret Scenes recently reviewed the show at NYC’s Birdland:


There seems no way to meaningfully compress into a half-century of life in show business in about an hour. Yet, Lucie Arnaz succeeded in hitting the highlights of her amazing career without sacrificing anything important. The lady has tons of pizzazz and clearly loves being on stage and performing. And as much a part of the show as Arnaz was music director Ron Abel, whose arrangement on “A Lot of Livin’ to Do” was a remarkable translation of Bob Fosse-style choreography on a piano. Arnaz and Abel have been together professionally for 30 years. The result is a synergy and a chemistry that sizzles on the stage.


The narrative is naturalistic, often funny, always interesting, and delivered with complete ease. Arnaz is chock full of anecdotes and memories. The name dropping comes fast and furious, but it’s not to impress—this is her life!  


The voice is robust, even girlish. Arnaz is skilled at interpreting the lyric and using vocal dynamics wisely. True to the show business adage, “leave them wanting more,” Arnaz departed the stage with a delighted audience hankering for just that.
