The thrill of seeing Lucy live on Broadway remains with me today. The show was colorful, tuneful fun. There are quite a few memorable songs.

TV in 1960 was still black and white only, so seeing this enormous star close up, her red hair, her big eyes was a rare treat. I will check my stubs (still have them), but I think I was taken to the Alvin just after the show opened. I think some described her voice as a foghorn, but I thought she was terrific. I don’t recall if audiences did standing ovations back then.
