Two-time Academy Award-winning actor Tom Hanks, and the late, great Nora Ephron have proven the magic of their combined talents on the big screen, and now Hanks is set to bring Ephron's last written character to life in his Broadway debut, Lucky Guy. This tale of the rise, fall, and rise again of a controversial 1980s reporter is a must-see, so purchase your Lucky Guy tickets today.
Brainchild of the late, award-winning writer and director Nora Ephron, Lucky Guy came bursting onto the theater scene in 2013 when big screen star Tom Hanks announced he would be making his Broadway debut for the production. Ephron wrote the story, which she originally initially intended to be a movie, about Mike McAlary, a hard-nosed Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and columnist who worked at the New York Daily News for 12 years covering stories of police corruption. The partnership between Ephron and Hanks for Lucky Guy wasn’t their first collaboration—Hanks had starred in her films “You’ve Got Mail” and “Sleepless in Seattle,” and the duo had become close friends before Ephron passed away in 2012. The debut show received rave reviews, and has quickly become a fan favorite on Broadway, so be sure to see the instant classic by purchasing 2013 Lucky Guy tickets from the Vivid Seats marketplace today.

It’s been a long time coming, but the wait is finally over, as two-time Academy Award winning actor Tom Hanks is set to take the plunge to the stage in his Broadway debut, Lucky Guy. The story, which is the final piece written by three-time Academy Award nominee, the late Nora Ephron, tells the tale of a controversial tabloid reporter’s trials and tribulations throughout his prize-winning career covering police corruption amidst the grimy, graffiti-laced New York City of the 1980s. The show is set to begin previews on March 1st at the Broadhurst Theatre in New York City, and the official opening is slated for April 1st.
The show will be under the keen directorial guise of two-time Tony Award winner, George C. Wolfe, who’s best known for his work on “Angels in America.” And for Hanks, he will be working in somewhat familiar territory acting the part of a character written by the Ephron. In the past, Hanks starred in two of Ephron’s most successful screenplays, 1993’s Sleepless in Seattle and 1998’s You’ve Got Mail. On stage, Hanks will be joined by two-time Tony Award nominee Courtney B. Vance and Emmy Award-nominee Maura Tierney. Lucky Guy tickets are on sale now, so don’t miss out on the chance to see Hanks attempt to conquer the Broadway stage.
