Nathan Lane and Jonny Orsini in a scene from THE NANCE.
WINNER! Three 2013 Tony Awards!
WINNER! Best Actor Nathan Lane (Outer Critics Circle Award and Drama League Award)
Douglas Carter Beane's THE NANCE recreated the naughty, raucous world of burlesque's heyday and told 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 in marked contrast to his offstage life.
Directed by 3-time Tony Award® winner Jack O'Brien, THE NANCE welcomed 2-time Tony Award® winner Nathan Lane back to Broadway as Chauncey.
March 21 - August 11, 2013
At the Lyceum Theatre
