In the 1930s, burlesque impresarios welcomed the hilarious comics and musical parodies of vaudeville to their decidedly lowbrow niche. A headliner called "the nance" was a stereotypically camp homosexual and master of comic double entendre - usually played by a straight man.

Douglas Carter Beane's The Nance recreates the naughty, raucous world of burlesque's heyday and tells the backstage story of Chauncey Miles and his fellow performers. At a time when it is easy to play gay and dangerous to be gay, Chauncey's uproarious antics on the stage stand out in marked contrast to his offstage life.

Winner of Three Tony Awards The Nance has been proclaimed "refreshingly original" by the New York Daily News while USA Today raves "Nathan Lane is as heartbreaking as he is hilarious." The New Yorker calls The Nance "a nearly perfect work of dramatic art." Directed by 3-time Tony Award winner Jack O'Brien, The Nance brings 2-time Tony Award winner Nathan Lane back to Broadway as Chauncey. Jonny Orsini won the 2013 Clive Barnes Award presented to young actors and dancers for his performance as Ned.
