Tom Hanks to make his Broadway Debut in Nora Ephron’s New Play, ‘Lucky Guy’

The New York Post is reporting that Tom Hanks will make his Broadway debut this January in a limited run of Nora Ephron‘s new play Lucky Guy.

The show is about a former New York newspaper columnist named Mike McAlary, who died in 1998 from colon cancer at the early age of 41. The show follows McAlary’s life during two imports periods: when he wrote about the famous Abner Louima case (for which he won a Pulitzer Prize) and when he “wrongly accused a lesbian of making up a rape charge to publicize feminist causes.”

According to the paper, Hanks has been looking to do a play in New York for a while but nothing ever gelled until Ephron, who also wrote Sleepless in Seattle, showed him the script. 

The play will be directed by Tony winner George C. Wolfe.

I guess this means I gotta be back in NYC in January?
