The Nance, the new play by Douglas Carter Beane, and starring Nathan Lane, opened last night on Broadway.
The show is described as, “Douglas Carter Beane’s THE NANCE recreates the naughty, raucous world of burlesque’s heyday and tells the backstage story of Chauncey Miles and his fellow performers. At a time when it is easy to play gay and dangerous to be gay, Chauncey’s uproarious antics on the stage stand out in marked contrast to his offstage life.
Directed by 3-time Tony Award winner Jack O’Brien, the cast includes Jenni Barber , Andréa Burns , Cady Huffman , Mylinda Hull , Nathan Lane , Geoffrey Allen Murphy , Jonny Orsini , Lewis J. Stadlen.
Critics and audience alike are praising Nathan Lane’s performance. He is one of our greatest living actors after-all.
