The Dress Circle: Spotlight on Nathan Lane Part 2
As promised, we’re back with a second look at the career (so far) of Nathan Lane on this week’s Dress Circle (2/28 7:00 p.m.). We’ll begin with a few songs from the film soundtrack of “The Producers” and a song from “The Birdcage” as well. For Lane’s stage appearances, we’ll turn to “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” for his wonderful performance as Pseudolus. In direct opposition to this slapstick role, we’ve got songs from his turn in “The Addams Famly” as Gomez and the somewhat addled Hubie and his search to find his destiny and save his marriage from a City Center Encores produciton of "Do Re Mi." Even a second hour isn’t enough to fully appreciate this man’s talents, but we’re going to try.
