We heard it was a possibility, but now it has been confirmed. Tom Hanks is coming to Broadway!
The Oscar-winning actor will make his debut in Nora Ephron's Lucky Guy, which follows the controversial career of a Mike McAlary, a New York columnist who won a Pulitzer Prize just before his death in 1998.
Previews for the show at the Broadhurst Theatre will begin on March 1 and opening night is scheduled for April 1.
We're very excited to see! Not only is it Tom Hanks, but it's the Sleepless In Seattle and You've Got Mail writer's last work finished before her death this past June.
While it's sad she won't be able to see one of her favorite actors bring her words to life, we're just happy that others can.
