Tom Hanks is staying on the Great White Way a little longer! The Broadway premiere of Nora Ephron’s Lucky Guy has extended through July 3, playing an additional 16 performances at the Broadhurst Theatre.
Directed by George C. Wolfe, Lucky Guy tells the story of famed tabloid columnist Mike McAlary, whose investigation of the scandal and corruption of 1980’s New York led to a meteoric career and national attention. Hanks stars as McAlary alongside Maura Tierney, Peter Scolari, Christopher McDonald, Peter Gerety, Courtney B. Vance, Brian Dykstra, Michael Gaston, Dustyn Gulledge, Danny Mastrogiorgio and Stephen Tyrone Williams.
Lucky Guy features set design by David Rockwell, costumes by Toni-Leslie James, lighting by Julie Fisher and Peggy Eisenhauer and sound by Scott Lehrer. The play opened on April 1.
The show was recently nominated for three Broadway.com Audience Choice Awards including Favorite New Play.
