Tom Hanks became emotional on stage as he made his Broadway debut in the late Nora Ephron's play "Lucky Guy" on April 1, 2013.
Meg Ryan, who starred with him in "Sleepless in Seattle" and "You've Got Mail," both written by Ephron, attended the performance, as did Hanks' wife Rita Wilson, their son Colin Hanks and his pregnant wife Samantha Bryant, Barbara Walters, Larry David and others.

"Lucky Guy" follows the career of Mike McAlary, a controversial tabloid reporter who rose to fame writing for the New York Daily News and The New York Post in the 1980's.
Ephron, an Oscar-nominated screenwriter, director and author, died at age 71 on June 26 in New York after battling leukemia, a form of blood cancer.
