Almost a third of a century after Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari started working together on a little show called Bosom Buddies, they are teaming up again for another project next year. Buffy and Hildegarde, I mean Kip and Henry, will be starring in Lucky Guy on Broadway. According to Playbill the Nora Ephron play is 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 (Hanks). 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.”
The play begins previews at the Broadhurst Theatre on March 1st and opens on my birthday April 1st. So I will try my hardest to be a lucky girl and see Lucky Guy on my B-day because I have had such crushes on both of them because of that sitcom and that would be my perfect gift!
Seriously how awesome is that they have remained Bosom Buddies for all of these decades!
BTW I found out about this story from Holland Taylor aka their old boss/partner Ruth Dunbar on Twitter!
