The Nance

  • Details

    Just in time for PRIDE month: It's 1930s New York, a time when it was easy to "play gay," but dangerous to be gay. A headliner called "the nance" was usually played by a straight man who would portray campy homosexual men in musical vaudeville sketches. However, in this play, Chauncey Miles not only plays a gay man but also is a gay man. "The Nance" will take you into the wild world of vaudeville and burlesque and tell the backstage story of Chauncey and his fellow performers. Winner of three Tony awards, and the DC premier! June 2-23, 2018.
