Other memorable and award winning roles include Albert in The Birdcage, Gomez in The Addams Family, and the voices of Snowbell in Stuart Little and Timon in The Lion King.

Lane currently plays Jimmy Wicker in It's Only a Play by Terrance McNally, with Matthew Broderick, F.Murray Abraham, Stockard Channing, Rupert Grint, Megan Mullally, and Micah Stock. He starred alongside O'Neill Trustee Brian Dennehy as Larry Slade in the revival of the Eugene O'Neill play The Iceman Cometh at Chicago'sGoodman Theatre in 2012, the most successful show in its history.

Inducted in the American Theatre Hall of Fame in 2008, Mr. Lane has been honored for a remarkable legacy in stage and screen, including 5 Drama Desk Awards, 2 Obies, 2 Tonys and 1 Screen Actors Guild Award.

The Monte Cristo Award honors a theater artist who exemplifies Eugene O'Neill's "pioneering spirit, unceasing artistic commitment, excellence, and accomplishment." A groundbreaking playwright and the only American dramatist to receive the Nobel Prize in Literature, Eugene O'Neill set his masterpiece Long Day's Journey Into Night at his childhood home, the Monte Cristo Cottage, in New London, CT. Past Monte Cristo Award recipients include Meryl Streep, Christopher Plummer, Michael Douglas, Kevin Spacey, Hal Prince, James Earl Jones, and Wendy Wasserstein.
