We attended a benefit for the New York Pops tonight at Feinstein’s 54 Below. The star of the cabaret-type show was our pal Lucie Arnaz, accompanied by our other good friend, Ron Abel. The headliner, Lucie, really sold out the house. It was standing room only. Lucie is married to actor Larry Luckinbill. They have five children.
Eliot and I won this in the silent auction, a day with Random House authors. Maybe they can help me finish my book.
One highlight of the evening was that Lucie sang “Until Now,” created by Ron Abel and Chuck Steffan. Since Eliot and I are friends with all three, it was a thrill to hear it. It’s such a gorgeous song that I hope you share it with others.
The other highlight of the evening was when Lucie sang “They’re Playing Our Song,” from the Broadway musical of the same name. She was the female lead and Robert Klein was her costar. The book was written by Neil Simon, lyrics by Carole Bayer Sager, and music by Marvin Hamlisch.
