Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Play
Readers picked Broadway favorite Nathan Lane as their choice for Leading Actor in a Play for his performance as the title character in The Nance. Will Lane take home his third Tony Award this year? The actor has already received the 2013 Drama League Award for Distinguished Performance and the 2013 Outer Critics Circle Award. His colorful performance as Chauncey Miles not only evokes laugher from audiences at the Lyceum Theatre, but also illustrates the darker side of living as a homosexual man in the early 1930s.
