Welcome to Nashville - a town full of colorful characters all chasing after the very same dream: a smash hit record.

Featuring an array of musical styles with salutes to Country, Broadway, Vaudeville, Bluegrass, Pop, and even Hawaiian, Lucky Guy weaves a tale of down-home dreamers and low-down schemers all willing to do whatever it takes to come out on top in the cut-throat world of Music City, USA.

The performance schedule for Lucky Guy is: Monday, Wednesday-Friday at 8pm; Saturday at 2 & 8pm; Sunday at 2 & 7:30pm. Tickets are $44.00-$86.50 (Premium seating is available) and can be purchased through TeleCharge.com/212-239-6200 or at the theatre box office from 12-6pm.
