On Tuesday, April 12, members of the press caught a sneak peek at Willard Beckham's new musical comedy Lucky Guy, which will play Off-Broadway at the Little Shubert Theatre, April 28-July 24, with an opening night set for May 19.

Set in Nashville, Tennessee, the musical weaves a tale of down-home dreamers and low-down schemers all willing to do whatever it takes to come out on top in the cut-throat world of Music City, USA.

The cast will star Leslie Jordan, Varla Jean Merman (aka Jeffery Roberson), Kyle Dean Massey, Jenn Colella, Jim Newman, and Savannah Wise. The cast will also feature Callan Bergmann, Xavier Cano, Wes Hart, and Joshua Woodie who make up the "Buckaroos."

The creative team will include Rob Bissinger (set design), Paul Miller (lighting design), William Ivey Long (costume design), Kurt Fischer (sound design), Todd Ellison (orchestrations and musical supervision), and A.C. Ciulla (choreography).
