Tom Hanks extends contract in LUCKY GUY through July 3

LUCKY GUY, starring two-time Academy Award®-winner Tom Hanks, will extend its run through Wednesday, July 3 only.  LUCKY GUY, which opened April 1 to critical acclaim at the Broadhurst Theatre (235 West 44th Street), is the final work by three-time Academy Award®-nominee Nora Ephron and directed by two-time Tony Award®-winner George C. Wolfe.

LUCKY GUY will play through Wednesday, July 3, for an additional 16 performances.  Check www.luckyguyplay.com for performance schedule.

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.

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.
