LUCKY GUY


I watched the Broadway Play “Lucky Guy” with Mr. Shibu Abraham and family. It was the first time  Tom Hanks, my favorite Hollywood actor, in Broadway theater.

Lucky Guy is 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.

Any kind of recording was prohibited in the theater. At the end the whole cast came forward and allowed us to take pictures.
