Lucky Guy : Opening Night at Broadway
April 03, 2013 - 0 comment
The opening night for Nora Ephron's Lucky Guy took place on Monday at the Broadhurst Theater, after a month of previews.
Tom Hanks got a standing ovation and even broke down in tears at the end of the show, when a curtain pulled back on stage to reveal a large portrait of Nora Ephron, who died last July.
The response was not just from friends and fans because they like Hanks, but because his portrayal of Mike McAlary is such a moving, funny, and lovely experience.
We added several press articles and reviews of the play in our press archive. They seem to all agree on one thing: Tom Hanks's performance Mike McAlary as we can read titles like Tom Hanks makes solid Broadway debut, Tom Hanks shines in Lucky Guy...
