Nov 02 - 18
The Nance

The Kansas City premiere of Douglas Carter Beane’s Broadway play, originally produced by Lincoln Center Theatre in 2013.

The Nance tells the story of burlesque’s stereotypically camp character and master of comic double entendre, almost always played by a straight man (so to speak). Mayor LaGuardia wants to clean up the city before the 1937 World’s Fair, and one of his targets is burlesque. What happens when our nance is gay…and has fallen in love? The Nance – equal parts drama and comedy – includes generous splashes of outrageous song-and-dance burlesque sketches.
