Live From Lincoln Center

"The Nance" Starring Nathan Lane

Season 39 Episode 6 | 2h 15m 13s

Nominated for three Tony Awards, Douglas Carter Beane's celebrated play is both a love letter to the grand old days of burlesque and a love story before its time. Nathan Lane gives the performance of a lifetime as Chauncey Miles, a burlesque comedian caught between the tug of his heart, the calling of his art, and the increasingly harsh realities of Depression Era politics and mores.
