Lucie 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.

Lucie Arnaz has created her own fiery, explosive and heartfelt musical tribute to the rhythm of her roots and a love note to the man who revolutionized television production and introduced the conga to the United States, her father Desi Arnaz. Latin Roots is an eclectic Latin American mix in English and Spanish, featuring songs by Irving Berlin and the Gershwins, among others, alongside tunes by Augustine Lara, Rafael Hernandez and Margarita Lecuona. This show performed with a sizzling sixteen-piece band complete with photographs and video, pays loving homage to the incomparable Desi Arnaz.

"This is my tip of the hat to the person who gave me the juice to become a musical performer", Lucie said, "I wouldn't be doing what I do if not for what I learned from him. This show is my giveback. People will be surprised at how much pertinent and personal information there is about us in the show. It's my gift to the public as well."
