The box office at the Broadhurst Theatre, which will soon be the home of the Broadway premiere of late writer Nora Ephron's Lucky Guy — starring Academy Award winner Tom Hanks — opens for business Jan. 25 at 10 AM. The Broadhurst is located at 235 W. 44th Street.
Tony Award-winning director George C. Wolfe will helm the production that will begin previews March 1 and officially open April 1 for a limited engagement through June 16.
Ephron, the late writer-director known for the screenplays to "Sleepless in Seattle," "When Harry Met Sally" and "Heartburn," authored the play about McAlary, who was a columnist for the New York Post and the Daily News.
The cast is led by Hanks as late writer Mike McAlary, Maura Tierney ("News Radio," "The Good Wife") as McAlary's wife Alice, and two-time Tony nominee Courtney B. Vance (Fences, Six Degrees of Separation) as McAlary's editor, Hap Hairston.
The cast will also feature Peter Scolari (Sly Fox, Hairspray) as columnist Michael Daly, Richard Masur ("Risky Business," "And the Band Played On") as editor Jerry Nachman/editor Stanley Joyce, Brian Dykstra (Red, Selling Out) as policeman Brian O'Regan, Christopher McDonald ("Thelma and Louise," Chicago) as lawyer Eddie Hayes, Peter Gerety ("Flight," "The Good Wife") as editor John Cotter, Michael Gaston (A Day in the Death of Joe Egg, "Mad Men") as columnist Jim Dwyer, newcomer Dustyn Gulledge as Dino Tortoricci, Deirdre Lovejoy ("The Wire," How I Learned to Drive) as reporter Louise Imerman/editor Debbie Krenek, Danny Mastrogiorgio (Golden Boy, Contact) as reporter Bob Drury, Stephen Tyrone Williams (Burning, My Children! My Africa!) as Abner Louima, as well as Paula Jon De Rose, Joe Forbrich, Tom Hammond and Marc Damon Johnson.
Lucky Guy is characterized as "a 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."
