Tom Hanks Makes His Broadway Debut In The Norah Ephron Play Lucky Guy Which Is Scheduled For A Limited Run At The Broadhurst Theatre

Tom Hanks Makes His Broadway Debut In "Lucky Guy"

Lucky Guy Broadway Show

After just eight weeks on Broadway, the Nora Ephron play Lucky Guy has recouped its investment. It's very unusual for a Broadway show to earn back its capitalization so quickly, but then again there is no other Broadway show out there featuring international film star Tom Hanks, who is making his Broadway debut in Lucky Guy.

In addition to its excellent financial performance, the producers have another reason to be happy: Lucky Guy recently earned a total of six Tony Award nominations.

Limited Run At The Broadhurst Theatre

The play was recognized with nods for Best Play, Best Direction, Best Scenic Design, Best Lighting Design, Best Featured Actor (Courtney B. Vance), and Best Actor for Tom Hanks.

The story of colorful real-life New York City tabloid columnist Mike McAlary, Lucky Guy started preview performances on March 1st. The production continues its limited run at the Broadhurst Theatre through July 3.
