    NATHAN LANE, Actor

    SHOWS: The Producers, Love! Valour! Compassion, Angels in America

    There is no greater representation of modern Broadway than three-time Tony Award winner Nathan Lane. His ability to transition from theatre to film, comedy to drama, tear-inducing laughter to heart-stopping pathos, all in one performance, is comparable to none. Nathan Lane has shared his gifts with audiences in such shows as the revivals of Guys and Dolls, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, The Man Who Came to Dinner, The Odd Couple, Angels in America, and the original productions of Laughter on the 23rd Floor, Love! Valour! Compassion!, The Producers, The Addams Family, November, Gary, and so many more!

    Nathan pulls back the curtain on his career to discuss how Eddie Bracken taught him comedy, what it was like collaborating with Terrence McNally, and why Joe Mantello jilted him for Laurie Metcalf!

    Also, Nathan shines the spotlight on Neil Simon, George C. Scott, and Jerry Zaks!

Networks Theatre ,

A complete experience.

I love Broadway, I love musical theatre, I love gossip, I love everything connected to theatre....and guess what? So do the hosts of this wonderful podcast. Their knowledge is amazing and what they don’t remember they look up during the show which is just like being amongst friends.
Each episode is a gem. Be it an interview with a Broadway practitioner or the supplementary episodes with their favourite things each one is a joy to listen to.
Subscribe. Listen. Celebrate.

Love this podcast

I absolutely adore this. Hearing legends talk and be interviewed by such knowledgeable interviewers who make you feel that you're sat next to them. I've literally listened to every episode!

Hilarious AND instructive!

I stumbled across this podcast when they interviewed a writer I was particularly interested in, and have since gone back and listened to a lot of the earlier episodes. I look forward to all the new ones, both for Rob and Kevin's very funny interaction, and the in-depth interviews with fascinating guests. One of the few podcasts I listen to as soon as it's avaiable. Keep up the great work guys!
