Thank you for giving us such a wonderful performance. She is truly a gifted actress and I felt I was looking a Lucy. Thanks again.

I liked the event I would have enjoyed it more if they would show more home movies or television clips of Lucy, Desi, Ethel, and Fred. I would recommend it to other people.

Description

This show is a celebration of the First Lady of Television that has been crafted in the spirit of the amusing lectures Lucille Ball enjoyed giving throughout her career.  The evening recreates the comic genius and the magic behind the “Queen of Comedy.”

Written by Suzanne LaRusch in collaboration with Ball’s daughter, Lucie Arnaz, the play is a flashback to the 1970s. Ball was in her 60s and was traveling the country in a stage show that involved taking questions from the audience.

Augmented by home movies supplied by Lucie Arnaz, LaRusch takes audiences “behind the scenes” into Ball’s personal life, revealing her approach to comedy and the heartbreak of her troubled marriage to Desi Arnaz.

LaRusch is a Hollywood-based actress-impressionist. While portraying Ball and other famous figures at Universal Studios Theme Park in the early 1990s, she quickly captured the attention of Ball’s son and daughter, Lucie and Desi Arnaz Jr., who authorized LaRusch to portray their mother in other venues.
