Happy Birthday Lucie! When I purchased tickets to the tour of SEESAW, I was only familiar with Lucie from her mother's sitcom and wondered if she was good enough to carry the show. I asked at the box office if there was any word on her. I laughed when he answered, "She's as good as Minnelli, if not better. " Remember this was the seventies when Minnelli ruled.
Lucie was remarkable in her singing, dancing, and acting abilities. The show was retooled for the tour leaving out some of the worst numbers ("Spanglish" for one). Act one ended with Lucie showing off what an excellent dancer she was in an impressive finale. I was fortunate enough to see her in THEY'RE PLAYING MY SONG and MY ONE AND ONLY. She was so likable in every show I saw. And I love her singing on the OLC recording of "WITCHES OF EASTWICK. An underused talent.
