Looks like Lucky Guy is going to be quite the hot ticket. Nora Ephron's final play, in which Tom Hanks makes his Broadway debut, took in over $1 million in ticket sales during the drama's first full week of previews. Several other new Broadway shows are also getting off to great starts including Matilda, which played to 96% capacity during its first week of performances. The Broadway transfer of Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike and Breakfast at Tiffany's also started their runs this week. While Broadway is buzzing with new shows, The Mystery of Edwin Drood was solved for the final time as the delightful revival played its final performance.
