Last year Nathan Lane starred in the Lincoln Center Theater’s production of out playwright Douglas Carter Beane’s play The Nance. Now many of those who couldn’t make it to New York will get a chance to see it as a filmed version is set to play at US cinemas beginning June 23rd.
It should screen in more than 300 movie theatres in an exclusive limited engagement courtesy of Lincoln Center and cinema advertising company Screenvision.
The Advocate says on the play, ‘Lane, a two-time Tony Award winner, stars as Chauncey Miles, a famous “nance,” which is an outrageously effeminate stock burlesque character. The play is set in 1930s New York, where the mayor has started cracking down on homosexual “deviants.” The cast, which features Jonny Orsini as Chauncey’s younger lover, also includes Jenni Barber, Andréa Burns, Cady Huffman, Mylinda Hull, Geoffrey Allen Murphy, and Lewis J. Stadlen.’
“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,” says Screenvision’s Darryl Schaffer “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.”
