Nathan Lane dazzled Broadway this year with his heartbreaking performance as a self-loathing gay vaudevillian in Douglas Carter Beane's drama The Nance. The role required him to wear a number of hats — literally — as the script blended scenes to further the plot with skits to comment on the action. Here are a series of Lane's many faces in the work (and a few from other shows to prove how truly versatile he is).
