lucky-guy-broadway-posterBosom Buddies Reunion!

Ok, not exactly but if you’re a fan of the sitcom that starred Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari, this is as close as we’ll get.

Additional casting has been announced for the Lucky Guy, the show that will mark Hanks Broadway debut. The new play, by the late Nora Ephron, will be directed by two-time Tony Award®-winner George C. Wolfe and will also star Christopher McDonald as lawyer Eddie Hayes; Peter Gerety as editor John Cotter and Peter Scolari as columnist Michael Daly, with Michael Gaston as columnist Jim Dwyer; Dustyn Gulledge as Dino Tortoricci; Deirdre Lovejoy as reporter Louise Imerman and editor Debbie Krenek; Danny Mastrogiorgio as reporter Bob Drury; Richard Masur as editor Jerry Nachman and editor Stanley Joyce; and Stephen Tyrone Williams as Abner Louima. 

Additional casting will be announced soon.

Ephron’s play marks a return to her journalistic roots in 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 (Hanks).  

The show will play a limited engagement at the Broadhurst Theatre (235 West 44th Street), with an opening night on April 1, 2013.  Previews will begin March 1.
