Opening night
I love NY any time of the year, even when it is 13 degrees. I flew in for Lucie Arnaz' opening of her "Latin Roots' show at Feinstein's at the Regency, and also to see Marlo Thomas in "Relatively Speaking" on Broadway, where she stars in Elaine May's one-act play. It is part of a trilogy. The other two one-cats are by Woody Allen and Ethan Coen. MARLO DESERVES THE TONY AWARD! She IS the entire evening, and it is her best work ever. So there. After I saw the play, we went to a little place in the theatre district called Trecolore, a family-owned Italian. I urge you to try it.


Lucie and Tommy

Stepson Ben Luckinbill, Ron Abel, Simon Luckinbill and Joe Luckinbill. I love them all

Michele Lee

Lucie and Valarie

LaBelle's Sarah Dash

 Feinstein's was so crowded for every show that you had to hang people off of chandeliers. Lucie, too, is doing the best work of her career. Forget LIZA, forget BETTE----Lucie is the best act out there right now. OMG. She's glamorous, sexy, drop dead funny, and sings up a storm. Her ever-faithful Ron Abel, THE conductor and Lucie put together an amazing show about, well, her "Latin Roots." Tommy Tune, Michele Lee, Fred Rappoport, Doug Denoff, Marlo Thomas, Valarie Pettiford, Sarah Dash---the list was endless about who came each night. What a party!
