Lucky Guy is a tribute to the late Nora Ephron. The performers say at least 50 percent of their lines directly to the audience, so it becomes a case of telling rather than showing. I didn't find this to be a fault as much as a device that altered the theatrical form.
I was glad to hear that Ephron left behind a new play called Lucky Guy, which opened this week in New York. And I was even more fascinated to hear that it's about Mike McAlary, the late columnist for the New York Daily News. It meant that we would have had at least one thing to talk about.
