Casting For The Nance – 1505912

12-09-15 – Victoria / Melbourne – New York. 1937. The burlesque impresarios welcomed the hilarious comics and musical parodies of vaudeville to their decidedly lowbrow niche. A headliner called ‘the Nance’ was stereotypically camp and master of comic double entendre – usually played by a straight man.

A recent Broadway hit starring Nathan Lane, The Nance recreates the naughty, raucous world of burlesque’s heyday and tells the backstage story of Chauncey Miles and his fellow performers. At a time when it is easy to play gay and dangerous to be gay, Chauncey’s uproarious antics on the stage stand out in marked contrast to his offstage life.
