Home Uncategorized Tom Hanks Extends Run in “Lucky Guy”– 4th Biggest Broadway Box Office

Tom Hanks probably needs to get back to making movies. But his run in “Lucky Guy” on Broadway is such a hit, Hanks has been persuaded to extend his stay. Now he’ll remain with the Nora Ephron play until July 3rd. The producers are no doubt thrilled. “Lucky Guy” was in 4th place last week among all Broadway shows, right behind “Wicked,” “The Lion King,” and “Book of Mormon.” This is unheard of among plays, although “Lucky Guy” has very high high high ticket prices. Still, it’s a clamor because the play and the actors are top notch. Expect Tony noms for Hanks, director George C. Wolfe, Ephron and a couple of the supporting actors– I’d say Peter Gerety and Courtney B. Vance, maybe Christopher MacDonald. I keep hearing rumblings that the show is “too Hollywood” to win Tonys. But I think that’s just ridiculous. “Lucky Guy” is really solid and terrific and deserves all accolades.
