Nathan Lane in 'The Nance'

Posted on

Nathan Lane fans, rejoice! The two-time Tony winner plays Chauncey Miles, a gay burlesque star of the 1930s living an underground life and contemplating romance with a much-younger admirer (Jonny Orsini) in Douglas Carter Beane’s new play The Nance. The show premiered on Monday at the Lyceum Theatre on Broadway, and EW’s exclusive video clip from opening night includes appearances by some notable first-nighters (Jesse Tyler Ferguson! Victor Garber! Cynthia Nixon!) and hints at what you can expect from the show. (Dig that great turntable set!)

The Nance will be playing at the Lyceum through June 16. Tickets are available at Telecharge.com.
