From the Broadway stage to the movie screen: Just in time for Pride Month!

Seattle's Admiral Theater presents a limited engagement: Nathan Lane stars in The Nance

Douglas Carter Beane's 2013 drama The Nance, produced by Lincoln Center Theater and headlined by two-time Tony Award-winning actor Nathan Lane, will screen at West Seattle's, Admiral Theater (2343 California Ave. SW) for a limited run from June 23-June 26 as part of Seattle's Gay Pride Month. USA Today praised Nathan Lane's standout performance 'as heartbreaking as he is hilarious.'

In The Nance, celebrated playwright Douglas Carter Beane tells the story of Chauncey Miles (Nathan Lane), a headline nance performer in the twilight of New York's burlesque era. 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 1930s New York, whose outrageous antics on the burlesque stage stand in marked contrast to his messy offstage life. This presentation of The Nance was filmed last year, and is directed for the screen by Matthew Diamond, with Andrew C. Wilk as Executive Producer.

Lane's performance is a powerhouse, expressing a variegated population of emotions that stretch the audience along a rubber band from zany belly-laughs to poignant tears as we identify with this Gay burlesque performer who forces himself to walk a tightrope of contradictory impulses toward love and hate, cynicism and hope, self-acceptance and self-loathing, empowerment and weakness.

The Broadway production was nominated for five Tony Awards including Best Actor: Nathan Lane, and two Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding Actor in a Play: Nathan Lane; and Outstanding Music in a Play: Glen Kelly. The Nance won three Tony Awards (Best Scenic Design of a Play, Best Costume Design of a Play, and Best Sound Design of a Play), two Outer Critics Circle Awards (Outstanding Actor in a Play: Nathan Lane; and Outstanding Director of a Play: Jack O'Brien), one Drama Desk Award (Outstanding Music in a Play: Glen Kelly), and Nathan Lane won the 2013 Drama League Award for Distinguished Performance of the Season.

Nathan Lane's many credits include roles on stage, on television and on film.

He made his Broadway debut opposite George C. Scott in Present Laughter (Drama Desk nomination), Guys and Dolls (Tony nomination, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle awards), Love! Valour! Compassion! (Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle awards), A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (Tony, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle awards), The Man Who Came To Dinner, The Producers (Tony, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle awards and the Olivier Award), and many others.

He has appeared in over 35 films including The Birdcage (Golden Globe nomination, Screen Actors Guild and American Comedy Awards), Ironweed, Frankie and Johnny, The Lion King, Stuart Little, and The Producers (Golden Globe nomination). In 2006 he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and in 2008 he was inducted into the American Theater Hall of Fame.

His television credits include recent, recurring roles on 'The Good Wife' and 'Modern Family,' in addition to other credits, which have garnered him five Primetime Emmy nominations, two daytime Emmy Awards, and a People's Choice Award.

The movie will screen each night at 6:50 p.m. from June 23-June 26. Tickets are $20.00 and can be purchased through Brown Paper Tickets: 1-800-838-3006 or www.brownpapertickets.com/event/722451 - or at the theater starting Friday, June 20th.
