It’s 1930s New York, a time when it was easy to “play gay,” but dangerous to be gay.

However, in this play, Chauncey Miles not only plays a gay man but is a homosexual himself. The Nance will take you into the wild world of burlesque and tell the backstage story of Chauncey and his fellow performers. Winner of three Tony Awards.
