That's right theatre fans. One of Broadway's most beloved stars will soon be back where he belongs. Nathan Lane, who was last on the boards in The Addams Family will begin previews on March 21 in The Nance. The show which is written by Tony nominee Douglas Carter Beane will officially open at the Lyceum Theatre on April 15. Here is a description of the show from it's official website.
"In The Nance, playwright Douglas Carter Beane tells the story of Chauncey Miles (to be played by Nathan Lane), a headline nance performer in New York burlesque, who also happens to be a homosexual. Integrating burlesque sketches into his drama, Beane paints, with humor and pathos, 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."
Nathan Lane is always a big draw at the box office so I would imagine that the show will do very well. We shall see. Tickets are expected to go on sale in the next few weeks so be sure to check back soon.
