Featured Reviews For The Nance


Nathan Lane leads Douglas Carter Beane’s ode to New York burlesque in ‘The Nance’ - NY Post
With his hunger to entertain and his precision timing, Lane reminds us why he's a vaudevillian master in those scenes. He could ham it up even more, though, as he did so flamboyantly in the film "The Birdcage."

The Tears of a Clown - Wallstreet Journal
One of the most exciting things that a well-produced play can do is serve as a time machine, giving modern-day audiences a privileged glimpse of a corner of the lost world of the past. That's what Douglas Carter Beane does with "The Nance," a dead-serious comedy set in New York circa 1937.
