Lucky Guy is the final play by Nora Ephron and will star two-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks.
Features: Lucky Guy is a new play by the late Nora Ephron, and this will be the Broadway debut of movie star Tom Hanks. Hanks will portray notorious New York Post columnist Mike McAlary during the pinnacle of the 1980's tabloid wars and racial tensions in New York City.
Why We Go: The highly-anticipated appearance of Tom Hanks in a Broadway show isn't the only reason to purchase Lucky Guy tickets.
- Superstar Appeal: Tom Hanks is one of the most famous actors in the world, so it may be hard to believe this is his first part in a Broadway show. Usually known for playing everyman roles, here he plays against type by depicting controversial real-life New York Post Columnist Mike McAlary, who won the Pultizer Prize shortly before his death in 1998.
- NYC Story: The show takes place in New York City of the 80's and 90's, and explores the racial tensions, tabloid war and gritty reality of the Big Apple during those years.
- Nora Ephron: The always insightful writer passed away in 2012, and this play will be the last time her fans can experience new Nora Ephron material. She was the writer of Sleepless in Seattle and You've Got Mail, two of Tom Hanks' biggest films.
Inside Knowledge: Lucky Guy will reunite Hanks with fellow cast member Peter Scolari; both he and Hanks got their start in show business by starring in the 1980's TV comedy Bosom Buddies.
Do's and Don'ts:
- Do order tickets online: Tom Hanks is bound to be a huge box-office draw for those desiring to see the actor up close and personal, so it would be prudent to order Lucky Guy tickets ahead of time.
- Do explore the area: The neighborhood around The Broadhurst Theatre is home to many exciting things to do in New York City. Don't just come for the show!
- Don't bring the kids: This new play discusses some heavy subject matters and is probably most appropriate for an older crowd.
- Don't forget to eat beforehand: Like other Broadway shows, Lucky Guy has an intermission, but that isn't really enough time to eat something substantial. Why not grab a bite to eat at one of the fabulous NYC restaurants in the area?
