Lincoln Center Theater’s production of The Nance - Friday, June 12 at 8:00 pm ET
Tony Award-winner Nathan Lane stars in Douglas Carter Beane’s dark comedy as Chauncey Miles, who faces a changing world and his own self-loathing. The play paints the portrait of a homosexual man, living and working in the secretive and dangerous gay world of 1930s New York, whose outrageous antics on the burlesque stage stand in marked contrast to his offstage life. With a touching love story at its core, Lincoln Center Theater’s Tony Award-winning production is also a fond and funny tribute to the golden age of burlesque. In addition to Lane, the cast boasts Tony Award-winner Cady Huffman, Lewis J. Stadlen, Jenni Barber, Andrea Burns, and Jonny Orsini.
