Lucky Guy

New York, NY

Lucky Guy is the story of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Mike McAlary, played by Tom Hanks. The play, written by Nora Ephron and directed by George C. Wolfe, required Rockwell Group to recreate multiple New York City newsrooms from the 1980s and 1990s. Carefully researched scenery details and furniture recreate various scenes within the smoke-filled world of the tabloid journalist. The primary element of the minimalist design is the hovering grid of the newsroom ceiling, which serves both to compress the space and as a projection surface for the images that define many of the scenes.
