'Lucky Guy' has recouped its $3.6 million capitalization in just eight weeks.

Nora Ephron’s Lucky Guy, which marks the Broadway debut of Tom Hanks, has recouped its $3.6 million investment just two months after beginning preview performances at the Broadhurst Theatre, reports The Wall Street Journal.

Lucky Guy follows the rise and fall (and rise again) of famed tabloid columnist Mike McAlary, whose Pulitzer Prize-winning coverage of the corrupt police force in New York in the ‘90s earned him national attention.

The crowd-pleasing play was also recently nominated for six Tony Awards including Best Actor in a Play (for Hanks), Best Director of a Play (for George C. Wolfe) and Best Play (for Ephron, marking the first posthumous nomination for a new Broadway play since Horton Foote’s Dividing the Estate in 2009).

Lucky Guy will end its limited engagement at the Broadhurst on July 3.
