You saw her on and off Broadway, perhaps in concert, and you still see her today in reruns of Perry Mason (1957), My Favorite Martian (1963), The Big Valley (1965), Hogan's Heroes (1965), and Here's Lucy (1969). Paula Stewart, producer, actress, singer, now spotlights often hilarious stories about her life with Lucille Ball, Burt Bacharach, Jack Carter, and others in a behind-the-scenes look at Broadway, Hollywood, and early television.
The red carpet unfurled for her in Broadway roles in Seventeen (1951) and The Most Happy Fella (1959), and then chemistry and coincidence collided with casting during preparations for Lucy's Broadway debut in the musical, Wildcat (1960). The show folded, but their friendship flowered.
With Lucy's unwavering support and Paula's plucky perseverance, she reinvented herself as movie producer, interior designer, real estate mogul, and mom. Lucy loved her with a sisterly bond that continued for over thirty years until her death.
Discover the grit and glitter of a funny, fabulous, and fanciful life with Lucy through the many loves of Paula Stewart.
