TOM HANKS WILL MAKE A “SPLASH” ON BROADWAY
Tom Hanks hasn’t had a hit movie lately so he’s making the logical move to Broadway. He’s been waiting for the right property to come along and this seems like a good fit. The brilliant Nora Ephron, (who wrote Hanks’ hit “Sleepless in Seattle,”) has written a new play, “Lucky Guy,” about a New York tabloid reporter who flourished in the 80’s and 90’s, which is considered the end of the era of newspaper dominance. It’s based on the real story of NY crime reporter Mike McAlary, who had a noteworthy career and died young at 41. This will be Tom Hanks’ Broadway debut.
