Lucille Ball’s Daughter, Lucie Arnaz, Forced To Cancel Upcoming Shows

by Joe Rutland

Lucie Arnaz, daughter of Lucille Ball, has had to cancel some upcoming shows on her schedule. She shared the news on Sunday.

Arnaz, whose mother was Ball and father was Desi Arnaz, took to Instagram with an update for fans.

Her show, I Got The Job! Songs From My Musical Past, made a stop in 2019 at Feinstein’s/54 Below in New York City.

The advance word for the show offered some insight into the Lucie Arnaz show.

“From her first role at 14 as The Cheshire Cat in Alice in Wonderland to a grandmother hanging upside down on a trapeze while singing about the preciousness of life in Pippin,” the story says, “Lucie and musical director Ron Abel offer audiences this brand new concert sharing stories and songs that Lucie has long been known for.

“With anecdotes and fond memories about her co-stars, directors, and musical collaborators, Lucie offers iconic songs and hidden treasures from some of Broadway’s greatest shows and a look at the backstage magic it takes to create them.”

Lucie Arnaz has been a part of TV lore herself. She made her debut on the small screen at 15 years old on her mother’s The Lucy Show. Starting in 1968, she, along with her brother Desi Arnaz Jr., starred in Here’s Lucy along with Ball.

Recently, Lucie Arnaz has been in the news around Aaron Sorkin’s movie Being the Ricardos.

Lucie Arnaz Explains Why She Does Not Comprehend Her Mother’s Fame

When it comes to trying to comprehend the success and life of her famous mom, even Lucie Arnaz has trouble doing it, too.

After all, it’s not everyone whose mother hits fame and fortune with one of television’s greatest sitcoms in I Love Lucy. Lucille Ball was a force to be reckoned with in the entertainment industry.

How does she view her mom? “I don’t know,” Arnaz said during an interview with Arlene Herson. “I don’t comprehend it really.”

In trying to talk about her feelings when it comes to her parents, Arnaz points out that Ball was more than just a TV star to her.

“She was just my mother,” Arnaz says. “She was a busy woman that a lot of people loved. I think I basically just said what I said was the truth – I mean I viewed her as my mother.”

But Lucille Ball was simply part of Lucie’s life growing up in a famous family.

“If I had been adopted at a later age, you know 8 years old, and found myself in this family, I may have something to compare it to,” Arnaz says. “But it was my family.”
