Lincoln Center Theater's Facebook site.
The Nance opened April 15th and has been extended through August 11th at the Lyceum Theater (149 West 45th Street).
Douglas Carter Beane's The Nance recreates the raucous world of burlesque's heyday and tells the story of Chauncey Miles (Nathan Lane) and his fellow performers. The Nance is a tale of Miles’ struggle to balance his belief that he can find happiness being a part of ‘mainstream / conservative’ New York with his onstage flamboyant persona and his offstage love affair with Ned (Jonny Orsini). Miles’ strong conviction that both his onstage and offstage personas are a normal part of the social fabric during Mayor LaGuardia’s cleanup of New York and his self-loathing for being unable to be a part of mainstream society leads to him to sabotage both his personal and professional life.
The Nance is running seven shows a week (in addition to Wed – Sat nightly shows, there are 2:00PM shows on Wednesday and Saturday and a 3:00PM show on Sunday) and tickets range from $37 - $127.
