Nathan Lane as 'The Nance' returns Saturday through Monday at Coral Gables Art Cinema

From Robert Rosenberg, director of Coral Gables Art Cinema:


the nance

The hit Broadway play starring two-time Tony Award-winner Nathan Lane, The Nance, returns to the Gables Cinema for encore presentations on Saturday, Sunday & Monday, August 30 to September 1 at 1:00 pm each day. In the 1930s, burlesque impresarios welcomed the hilarious comics and musical parodies of vaudeville to their decidedly lowbrow niche. Douglas Carter Beane's The Nance recreates the naughty, raucous world of burlesque's heyday and tells the backstage story of Chauncey Miles (a gay man in his personal life) playing a headliner called "the nance," a stereotypically camp gay man and master of comic double entendre - usually played by a straight man, and his fellow performers. At a time when it was 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. When the mayor of New York tries to end burlesque, Chauncey must fight in court for his freedom of expression. Performances are captured live and presented in high quality 2K Digital Cinema Projection that brings Broadway to the Gables. Tickets are $20 and under and are available in advance through the Cinema’s website www.gablescinema.com and in person at the box office during regular screening hours. The Cinema is located at 260 Aragon Avenue, directly across from Books & Books, in downtown Coral Gables.
