Another reason to love Nathan Lane


NancePlaybillActor Nathan Lane injured himself last night during a performance of The Nance on Broadway.

An accident occurred during the first act when he was stepping off a spinning turntable as a scene changed. He misjudged what he was doing and injured his foot and leg, and had to be replaced by his understudy Stephen DeRosa.

But the Broadway vet isn’t missing a beat. He got medical treatment and will be back on stage tonight according to a report on BroadwayWorld.com.

What a trouper and professional.

As the run for The Nance starts to wind down (closing date is Aug. 11), I hope anyone who has the opportunity to see him in this show does so. He gives a fine performance as a smart but conflicted actor who has to balance his private life with a public burlesque career as a silly Nance, whose main job is to provide the punch lines to dirty jokes.

The play is wildly funny and also sadly touching, and the role means a lot to Nathan Lane personally, so I’m glad he’ll be around to finish it.

Bravo to you Mr. Lane.
