by Sachi Parker and Fred Stroppel and starring Sachi Parker
Written by Ms. Parker and playwright Frederick Stroppel, and based on her best-selling memoir, LUCKY ME takes us on a tour of Sachi’s colorful, idiosyncratic, sometimes unbelievable life: born in Los Angeles but raised by her father Steve Parker in Tokyo, she attended boarding school in England and Switzerland, worked in Hawaii and France, was engaged to a rancher in Australia, traveled the world as a flight attendant for Qantas Airlines, and finally settled down in Malibu with her mother – which is when the fun really starts. In LUCKY ME, Sachi Parker reveals what it’s like to be the daughter of the most celebrated singing dancing Academy-Award-winning reincarnated spiritualist in this world (and the next).

“Expecting Miracles” Nelly Diamond expected a lot from life. And she always seemed to get what she wanted. Until now. Now, she expected miracles. But that’s exactly what she needed to have the one thing she suddenly couldn’t do without…a baby. ”Expecting Miracles” is a deeply affecting and hilarious novel that answers the baby question with another question: what happens to the woman who has everything when she is denied the one thing all women take for granted.

Fast forward to his teen years, and Ben’s life has spun out of control.

“Lucky Me: My Life With – and Without – My Mom, Shirley MacLaine” The only child of Shirley MacLaine and husband Steve Parker, Sachi’s surreal childhood began when she was sent to Japan at the age of two to live with her mercurial father and his mistress. Sachi divides her time being raised by a Japanese governess and going back and forth to L.A. to be with her mother, on movie sets, photo shoots and Hollywood parties. As she gets older, Sachi Parker tries to unravel the mysteries of her childhood and her parents’ unconventional marriage.
