Read my review of the Broadway production, then head over to to purchase tickets before the Broadway run concludes. Playbill has more details.

  • Lucky Guy, the last play written by the late great Nora Ephron, will bow on Broadway this spring. Dates are not set, but according to the announcement on Playbill, rehearsals are likely to begin in January 2013 with the first preview tentatively set for March 1.

Ann, with which Taylor has been playing regional engagements, will settle in to the Vivian Beaumont Theater (current home to War Horse) in spring 2013. Preview dates have not been announced, but opening night is set for March 7, 2013. Playbill has details.
