Tom Hanks makes his Broadway debut as New York Post writer Mike McAlary

Closed 3 Jul 2013

Lucky Guy is the Tony Nominated new play 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.

From his sensational reporting of New York’s major police corruption to the libel suit that nearly ended his career, the play dramatizes the story of McAlary's meteoric rise, fall and rise again, ending with his coverage of the Abner Louima case for which he won the Pulitzer Prize, shortly before his untimely death on Christmas Day, 1998.

Lucky Guy has been nominated for a dazzling SIX Tony Awards including the coveted Best Performance by a Leading Actor for Tom Hank's title role and Best Play awards.
