4. The Nance
Friday, June 12th, 8PM EDT
Tony Award-winner Nathan Lane stars in Douglas Carter Beane’s dark comedy as Chauncey Miles, who faces a changing world and his own self-loathing. The play paints the portrait of a homosexual man, living and working in the secretive and dangerous gay world of 1930s New York, whose outrageous antics on the burlesque stage stand in marked contrast to his offstage life.
5. Act One
Friday, June 19th, 8PM EDT
Few have captured the magic of the theater better than Moss Hart, a kid from the Bronx who went on to become a lion of Broadway. Tony-Award winning writer and director James Lapine adapts Hart’s memoir for the stage, and earned a tony award nomination for best play in the process, in this gorgeous Lincoln Center Theater production, creating a world as vivid and transformative as the stage itself.
