The two have known each other for years. After meeting on a movie set, the couple was even married at one point. No longer together, the two remain friends and Desi is remarried.
“Desi very kindly agreed to come in and play percussion, which is something that everybody should experience once in a lifetime because he blows the roof off,” Purl said. “It’s a tribute to the great nightclub era in New York.”
Purl describes the show as a trip through the New York City of the 40s and 50s, including the vintage nightclubs of the day.
Of course, we had to ask Arnaz what it was like growing up as the son of television legends.
“There’s no way to describe it,” he said. “I Love Lucy usurped any individual… It’s beyond, it’s more than any one person. ”
For information about the show, you can call (212) 339-4095. For the full interview, check out the video below.
