The Nance

By Douglas Carter Beane
Directed by Kurt Schneiderman

This Tony Award-winning 2013 play takes us back to the burlesque houses of Depression Era New York City where “The Nance” was a stock performance character – a openly gay character in an unrepentantly homophobic world.  As Mayor LaGuardia orders a crackdown on “impure” elements in the entertainment industry, one burlesque performer faces a brutal choice between his dignity, his freedom, and his income.

Starring Christopher Standart as “The Nance”
