Lucky Guy Story

Nora Ephron’s Lucky Guy 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.

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.

Lucky Guy Performance Schedule

Lucky Guy will begin previews at the Broadhurst Theatre (235 W. 44th St. between Broadway and 8th) on March 1 prior to officially opening on April 1.
