Photo Coverage: Meet the Cast of LUCKY GUY

‚Äč

Avid Theatricals is presenting the Off-Broadway premiere of Lucky Guy, a new musical comedy, written and directed by Willard Beckham. Performances will begin on Thursday, April 28, 2011 and continue through Sunday, July 24, 2011 at the Little Shubert Theatre (422 West 42nd Street, between 9th & Dyer Avenues). Opening night is set for Thursday, May 19, 2011. Lucky Guy will play a 12-week limited engagement. The stars of the show met the press this week to present a sneak peek performance and BroadwayWorld.com was there!

Welcome to Nashville - a town full of colorful characters all chasing after the very same dream: a smash hit record. To beat the odds and strike gold (or, better yet, platinum), it takes one great song, serious talent, or lots of luck - and preferably all three. 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 Lucky Guy creative team includes Rob Bissinger (set design), Paul Miller (lighting design),William Ivey Long (costume design), Kurt Fischer (sound design), Todd Ellison (orchestrations and musical supervision), and A.C. Ciulla (choreography). Cast and additional creative team will be announced at a later date.

Tickets are $44.00-$81.50 (Premium seating will also be available) and will be on sale beginning Monday, January 10, 2011 through TeleCharge.com/212-239-6200.
