This article is more than 10 years old and may not have been updated since our last site redesign. It may contain outdated information or could be missing images.

This is sort of interesting that this news landed here at Rock Father HQ when it did – a time when my oldest (not quite five) is in Theatre Camp for a “Broadway Beginners” production of ANNIE that wraps-up later this week. Interesting, because this isBroadway on Screen,” and starting June 23, Screenvision and Lincoln Center are bringing THE NANCE starring Nathan Lane to 300 screens Nationwide. Check out a preview…


THE NANCE | Synopsis:

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.

“Through this partnership with Lincoln Center, we are thrilled to offer moviegoers nationwide the chance to see one of the most original plays with a stellar cast of complex and enthralling characters. We are pleased that we can offer it to our exhibitor partners and take part in extending the reach of such a great work of art.”Darryl Schaffer, Executive Vice President, Operations and Exhibitor Relations, Screenvision.
