The musical comedy written and directed by Willard Beckham, as previously announced, begins performances April 28, and continues through July 24. Opening night is May 19.
As reported, Lucky Guy will star Emmy Award winner Leslie Jordan ("Will & Grace," My Trip Down the Pink Carpet), Varla Jean Merman (aka Jeffery Roberson) (Chicago, "Ugly Betty"), Kyle Dean Massey (Next To Normal, Wicked), Jenn Colella (Urban Cowboy, High Fidelity), Jim Newman (Curtains, Steel Pier) and Savannah Wise (Rock of Ages, Ragtime).
Here's how producers characterize the show: "Welcome to Nashville — a town full of colorful characters all chasing after the very same dream: a smash hit record. To beat the odds and strike gold (or, better yet, platinum), it takes one great song, serious talent, or lots of luck — and preferably all three. Featuring an array of musical styles with salutes to Country, Broadway, Vaudeville, Bluegrass, Pop, and even Hawaiian, Lucky Guy weaves a tale of down-home dreamers and low-down schemers all willing to do whatever it takes to come out on top in the cut-throat world of Music City, USA."
The Lucky Guy creative team includes Rob Bissinger (set design), Paul Miller (lighting design), William Ivey Long (costume design), Kurt Fischer (sound design), Todd Ellison (orchestrations and musical supervision) and A.C. Ciulla (choreography).
