Oscar winner Tom Hanks celebrates his birthday July 9.

Known for his work in films such as Forrest Gump and Philadelphia, Hanks made his Broadway debut in Nora Eprhon’s Lucky Guy, which opened at the Broadhurst Theatre April 1, 2013. The production, directed by George C. Wolfe, played 33 previews and 104 performances before closing July 3, 2013, earning six Tony Award nominations and winning two: Best Featured Actor in a Play for Courtney B. Vance and Best Lighting Design of a Play for Jules Fisher and Peggy Eisenhauer.

Lucky Guy dramatizes the story of tabloid columnist Mike McAlary’s meteoric rise, fall, and rise again, ending with his coverage of the Abner Louima case, for which he won the Pulitzer Prize.
