Nathan Lane to return to 'The Nance' after injury
By MARK KENNEDYAP Drama Writer
Lane was unable to finish Wednesday night after the Tony Award-winner's leg was injured by the play's revolving set. Two and a half hours before he was due to go on Thursday, the spokeswoman said he would be back.
In Douglas Carter Beane's play, Lane plays a "nance" - a show business term for a stereotypically camp homosexual man - who is struggling both with his own identity and frustration at society's hypocrisy toward homosexuality.
Lane, a Tony winner for "The Producers" and "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum," was nominated as best actor this year for "The Nance."
