Trailer Released For Nathan Lane In THE NANCE, Coming To Theaters 6/23A preliminary sneak peek of two-time Tony Award-winning Broadway superstar Nathan Lane in the trailer for the forthcoming movie theater showing of his highly acclaimed recent stage hit THE NANCE is now available to view.

The official description of THE NANCE is as follows: "In The Nance, playwright Douglas Carter Beane tells the story of Chauncey Miles (Nathan Lane), a headline nance performer in New York burlesque, who also happens to be homosexual. Integrating burlesque sketches into his drama, Beane paints the portrait of a homosexual man living and working in the secretive and dangerous gay world of 1930's New York whose outrageous antics on the burlesque stage stand in marked contrast to his messy offstage life."

More information is as such: "The Nance, which received three Tony Awards, played on Broadway at New York's Lyceum Theater in 2013. The New York Daily News called the play "refreshingly original" and USA Today praised Nathan Lane's standout performance "as heartbreaking as he is hilarious." In addition to Lane, Beane's play, produced by Lincoln Center Theater and directed for the stage by celebrated Broadway veteran Jack O'Brien, features an outstanding ensemble cast in Jenni Barber, Andrea Burns, Cady Huffman, Mylinda Hull, Geoffrey Allen Murphy, Jonny Orsini and Lewis J. Stadlen. Sets for the stage were designed by John Lee Beatty, costumes by Ann Roth, lighting by Japhy Weideman, sound by Leon Rothenberg, original music by Glen Kelly, orchestrations by Larry Blank, hair/wig design by David Brian Brown, and choreography by Joey Pizzi. Music was conducted by David Gursky. This presentation of The Nance was filmed last year, and is directed for the screen by Matthew Diamond, and with Andrew C. Wilk as Executive Producer."

More information on the ScreenVision movie theater showing of THE NANCE beginning on June 23 is available at the official site here.
