Who Does Bette Midler Turn to for Broadway Advice?
You knew Nathan Lane would show up at The Daily Show with a good story.
May 15, 2013

Even Bette Midler asks for advice from Tony-Award-winning actor Nathan Lane.

The always charming Lane stopped by The Daily Show to talk about his latest Broadway appearance in The Nance, in which Lane plays a gay burlesque performer in the ’30s dealing with his feelings about a younger man. “He’s a victim of his own self loathing and his inability to accept what, by today’s standards, would be a healthy relationship,” Lane said.

Lane is so respected in the theater community that even Midler asks him for advice on the grueling weekly schedule of live theater.

  1. Nathan Lane is simply the best male actor working on the stage today. Hearing that Bette called him for advice was priceless. The “sweat shop in Haiti” line had me on the floor.
    Thank you, Mr. D., for posting this.
