About Harvey's guest:
Today’s special guest, Lucie Arnaz, first appeared as Kim Carter, on her legendary mother’s wonderful TV show, “Here’s Lucy”. For 6 seasons, she was America’s favourite teenager, singing and dancing not only with her fabulous Mom, Lucille Ball, and her brother, Desi Arnaz Jr., but with everyone from Ginger Rogers to Wayne Newton to Donny Osmond.
On the big screen, she won a Golden Globe nomination for her performance opposite Neil Diamond and Sir Lawrence Olivier in “The Jazz Singer”. She also co-starred in “Billy Jack Goes to Washington”, “Second Thoughts”, “Down to You”, “Wild Seven”, and the thought-provoking and multi-award winning film, “Smoking Non-Smoking”. She starred in numerous TV movies including “Who Killed The Black Dahlia?”, “Washington Mistress”, “The Mating Season”, “Who Gets The Friends?” and “Abduction of Innocence”.
On Broadway, she played the unforgettably wacky Sonia Wolsk, in “They’re Playing Our Song”, which earned her The Los Angeles Drama Critic’s Circle Award, the Theatre World Award, and the Outer Critic's Circle Award. She’s also starred on Broadway in “Lost in Yonkers”, “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” and “Pippin”. She’s demonstrated incredible versatility on the stage, in dozens of productions ranging from “Seesaw” to “Whose Life Is It Anyway?”, “Vanities”, “My One and Only”, “The Witches of Eastwick” and so many more great shows. As a vocalist, she dazzled us with her albums entitled, “Just in Time”, “Latin Roots” and “Lucie Live at FINESTINE’s at the Niko”. And if that weren’t enough, she’s a spectacular nightclub and concert artist, most recently performing for sell-out crowds in her hit show, “LUCIE ARNAZ: I GOT THE JOB! SONGS FROM MY MUSICAL PAST”.
In 1993, she won an Emmy Award for her documentary TV special about her parents entitled, “Lucy and Desi: A Home Movie”.
