The new Off-Broadway musical Lucky Guy, starring 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), is set to begin performances at the Little Shubert Theatre April 28 with an official opening May 19.


The musical is set in Nashville. According to producers, the "town [is] 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."

Here, the cast of the Off-Broadway production is shooting the television commercial to promote Lucky Guy. Members of the cast and creative team talk about the show—without giving too much away—and show some outtakes from their day at the studio.
