Is it me or is there a lot more theater on TV? And at movie theaters? And other non traditional venues which is all a really good thing.
On Monday (Nov. 28) we had #TheaterOnTV with “Buried Child” as part of the #PBSTheater Close-Up series.
Tonight at 9 on Channel 13 is an encore performance of “The Nance” with the amazing #NathanLane as a closeted gay burlesque comic. (repeats on Channel 13 at 1:30 a.m. Dec. 6, plus streaming live on various PBS stations ).
If you missed “The Nance,” starring the incomparable Nathan Lane Friday night on PBS Channel 13, you can watch it now on the station’s website by clicking here.
Nominated for three Tony Awards, Douglas Carter Beane’s celebrated play is both a love letter to the grand old days of burlesque and a love story before its time. Nathan Lane gives the performance of a lifetime as Chauncey Miles, a burlesque comedian caught between the tug of his heart, the calling of his art, and the increasingly harsh realities of Depression Era politics and mores.
