What Is the Story of Lucky Guy?
Lucky Guy is a dramatic retelling of the career of famed New York tabloid columnist Mike McAlary, who rose to newspaper stardom in the late '80s and early '90s with a series of high-profile cases and investigative reporting. The show charts the development of McAlary’s Pulitzer Prize-winning career, as well as the evolution of his marriage, family and health. (He died of colon cancer at age 41 in 1998.)

Critics' Reviews

"...a vigorous and engaging new play that is receiving a strong production helmed by George C. Wolfe."

Review by Matt Windman from AM NY

"Hanks, making his Broadway debut, is classic Hanks — lovable, touching and funny... He makes a great Broadway debut, making McAlary a lovable rogue we have to root for even if we sometimes shouldn't. "

Review by Mark Kennedy from Associated Press
