LUCKY GUY is directed by two-time Tony Award-winner George C. Wolfe. The production opened April 1, 2013 at the Broadhurst Theatre (235 West 44th Street). The limited engagement was recently extended for 16 additional performances through July 3, 2013.

Nora Ephron began her professional career as a reporter at The New York Post in 1962 and Lucky Guy marks a return to her journalistic roots. Her new play is about the scandal- and graffiti-ridden New York of the 1980s, as told through the story of the charismatic and controversial tabloid columnist Mike McAlary (Tom Hanks). Lucky Guy is the third collaboration between Tom Hanks and Nora Ephron, following the films Sleepless in Seattle and You've Got Mail.

From his sensational reporting of New York's major police corruption to the libel suit that nearly ended his career, Lucky Guy dramatizes the story of McAlary's meteoric rise, fall and rise again.

The production also stars Maura Tierney (Alice McAlary), Christopher McDonald (Eddie Hayes), Peter Gerety (John Cotter); Courtney B. Vance (Hap Hairston); Peter Scolari (Michael Daly) and Richard Masur (Jerry Nachman/Stanley Joyce); with Brian Dykstra (Brian O'Regan);Michael Gaston (Jim Dwyer); Dustyn Gulledge (Dino Tortorici); Andrew Hovelson (Reporter); Deirdre Lovejoy (Louise Imerman/Debby Krenek); Danny Mastrogiorgio (Bob Drury/John Miller) and Stephen Tyrone Williams (Abner Louima). The production also features Paula Jon De Rose, Joe Forbrich, Thomas Michael Hammond and Marc Damon Johnson.
