VIDEO: THE NANCE's Nathan Lane Talks Tony Competition with Tom Hanks on THE LATE SHOW
Lincoln Center Theater's critically acclaimed production of The Nance, a new play by Douglas Carter Beane, directed by Jack O'Brien at the Lyceum Theatre (149 West 45th Street) and starring Nathan Lane will now run through August 11, 2013. Lane stopped by THE LATE SHOW with David Letterman last night to discuss his Tony Awards competition with "award magnet" Tom Hanks. Watch below!
The production, which features Jenni Barber, Andréa Burns, Cady Huffman, Mylinda Hull, Nathan Lane, Geoffrey Allen Murphy, Jonny Orsini and Lewis J. Stadlen, was recently nominated for 5 Tony Awards including Best Actor - Nathan Lane, 6 Outer Critics' Circle Awards including Outstanding Broadway Play, Drama Desk Awards for Best Actor in a Play - Nathan Lane and Best Music for a Play - Glen Kelly and Drama League Awards for Outstanding Production of a Play and Distinguished Performance - Nathan Lane.
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.
THE NANCE has sets 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, is conducted by David Gursky, has wig design by David BrIan Brown and choreography by Joey PizziBuy Tickets to The Nance - click here.
