The Drama League features award-winning actor Nathan Lane in its Up Close series Jan. 30.
Moderated by Tony winner Jack O'Brien, the conversation is held at the Drama League Theater Center.
Here's how the event is billed: "Two-time Tony Award winner and the recipient of The Drama League 2013 Distinguished Performance Award for his remarkable turn as Chauncey Miles in The Nance, the incomparable Nathan Lane will kick off 2014 by sharing his insights, memories, and backstage experiences from his long and storied career. Sharing his stage triumphs (Guys and Dolls,The Producers, Love! Valour! Compassion!) and his work in film and television ('The Birdcage,' 'The Good Wife'), Mr. Lane will be joined by the Tony-winning director of The Nance, Jack O’Brien (Hairspray)."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
