The Bay Street Theatre's annual "Rock The Dock" benefit bash is happening on Saturday evening on the Long Wharf in Sag Harbor. This year the gala will be hosted by the most famous face in daytime television history, Susan Lucci. Indy had a chance to speak with Lucci about her involvement with Bay Street Theatre as well as "Devious Maids," the new show she stars in on Lifetime.

When asked how Lucci became involved with Bay Street Theatre, she replied, "It was Mary Ellen Diprisco (Special Events Producer at Bay Street). We used to work together at ABC for a long time. The last time we worked together was in Hawaii. I was so happy to hear from her." Lucci continued, "I love Bay Street Theatre, so when she asked me to be a part of it, I was very happy to do it."

Lucci is no stranger to the Hamptons and has love for Bay Street and Sag Harbor. "We have a house in Quogue. We try to go to Bay Street every summer. I just love it there. I've gone to many performances at Bay Street. We love Sag Harbor, love the American Hotel, love it all."

Her role on the "Devious Maids," created by Marc Cherry, who also created the hit series, "Desperate Housewives," has received critical acclaim. "It's about five Latino maids in Beverly Hills households. I play Genevieve Delatour. I'm the head of one of those households and two of the maids work in my house," says Lucci.

"Devious Maids" can be seen on Lifetime on Sundays at 10 PM.

"Rock The Dock" will take place on Saturday starting at 6 PM. Alongside Lucci, Actor and Bay Street board member, Richard Kind, who most recently won the Drama Desk Award for his role on Broadway's The Big Knife, will be the evening's celebrity auctioneer. Karen Ziemba will be performing at the gala.

Board member Joy Behar also plans on attending, with a host of other surprise celebrities. The gala is being held in honor and memory of the Theatre's founder and former Artistic Director, Sybil Christopher. Tickets are available online at or by calling Jessica Lemire at 631-725-0818 ext. 129.
