The Nance at Lincoln Center Theater

The Nance at Lincoln Center Theater

In the world of 1930’s burlesque, a nance was a wildly popular character, a stereotypically camp homosexual man, usually played by a straight performer. In The Nance, playwright Douglas Carter Beane tells the story of Chauncey Miles (Nathan Lane), a headline nance performer in New York burlesque, who also happens to be homosexual. Integrating burlesque sketches into his drama, Beane paints, the portrait of a homosexual man, living and working in the secretive and dangerous gay world of 1930’s New York, whose outrageous antics on the burlesque stage stand in marked contrast to his messy offstage life.
