Two-time Tony Award winner Nathan Lane and playwright Simon Gray — of Broadway's current Butley — will appear on WNYC Radio at noon Oct. 27.


Featured guests on the Leonard Lopate's "New York & Company," Lane and Gray can be heard in the New York area on 820 AM or 93.9 FM.

Nicholas Martin — who directed Lane in the 2003 Huntington Theatre Company run of the work — reteams with the star for the Broadway run, which began previews Oct. 5 and opened at the Booth Theatre Oct. 25 for a run slated through Jan. 14, 2007.

Dana Ivey, Pamela Gray, Roderick Hill, Julian Ovenden, Darren Pettie and Jessica Stone also star in the production, which follows the title character who smokes and drinks his way through a day when he loses both his wife and his lover.

Elizabeth Ireland McCann, Stephanie P. McClelland, Eric Falkenstein, Debra Black, Chase Mishkin, Barbara Manocherian/Larry Hirschhorn, Barbara Freitag and Jeffrey Sine/Frederick Zollo produce the revival.

In addition to his Tony-winning roles in The Producers and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Nathan Lane has starred on The Great White Way in The Odd Couple, Present Laughter, Merlin, The Wind in the Willows, Some Americans Abroad, On Borrowed Time, Guys and Dolls, Laughter on the 23rd Floor, Love! Valour! Compassion! and The Man Who Came to Dinner. The actor has also been featured in such films as "Addams Family Values," "Mousehunt," "Love's Labour's Lost" and "The Birdcage," scoring a Golden Globe nomination for his work in the latter. He was also seen in the film adaptations of "Nicholas Nickleby" and "The Producers."

Butley performs at the Booth Theatre, located at 222 West 45th Street. For more information, visit butleyonbroadway.com.
