"My agent rang me when he got this email and said, 'You have to do this. It's my favorite thing ever.' And he regaled this story to me about when he was young and walking through New York where there was an outdoor performance going on," she explained. "He heard Heidi [Blickenstaff] singing "A Way Back to Then" and he was like, 'What is this show?' So he went to see it and fell in love with it... and when it came in for me he said 'Do it!'

Lucie admits that she was equally excited about her costars. "I have wanted to work with Jenna Russell since Jenna Russell existed. I am so obsessed with her. They say 'Don't meet your heroes,' but I did and mine was awesome!"
