New York! Don’t miss your chance to see two time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks live and in the flesh as he makes his Broadway debut in Nora Ephron’s play “Lucky Guy.”  The comedy/drama is about the life of Mike McAlary, columnist of New York City tabloids in the 1980s and ’90s.  It’s interesting to see Tom Hanks in a role of a character that is unlikeable and because his acting skills are top notch, you forget that you are watching Tom Hanks.  There are a bunch of other great actors in the cast including Courtney B. Vance, Maura Tierney, Christopher McDonald, Richard Masur and Peter Scolari, making this an unintentional “Bosom Buddies” reunion!  Whoa!!!

Both Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari were very accommodating (or were as accommodating as possible) to hordes of fans waiting to catch glimpses of the actors and for that I say thank you!  “Lucky Guy” only runs though June 2013, so make sure you book your tickets in advance so you don’t miss out.  Thanks again Tom and Peter for a great night!

It’s nice to see that Hanksy is breaking away from just doing Tom Hanks-themed street art.

Hanksy’s art, while extremely clever is not engineered very well and less than 24 hours of getting up, is destroyed.

I love Hanksy!  Every time I see his work, I laugh out loud.  I guess one day he’ll be in charge.

This is the second time I’ve encountered a Hanksy in person and for the second time, it made my day sooooooo much better!
