The Nance

Douglas Carter Beane’s acclaimed drama The Nance, produced by Lincoln Center Theater, stars stage and screen actor Nathan Lane as Chauncey Miles, a headliner in New York’s era of burlesque. Directed for the stage by Broadway veteran Jack O’Brien, the play paints the portrait of a gay man whose outrageous antics on the stage stand in marked contrast to his offstage life.
