Manhattan Theatre Club will honor two-time Tony winner Nathan Lane on Monday, November 7, at its 2016 Fall Benefit.

Throughout his career, Lane has starred in six MTC productions including Claptrap, The Lisbon Traviata, Bad Habits, Lips Together, Teeth Apart, Love! Valour! Compassion!, and Mizlansky/Zilinsky or "Schmucks", and served on MTC's board of directors from 1994-2007.

He was last seen on Broadway in the 2014 revival of Terrence McNally's It's Only a Play, followed by an acclaimed run as Hickey in The Iceman Cometh at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. His Broadway credits also include The Nance (Tony nomination), The Addams Family, The Producers (Tony Award), A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (Tony Award), and Guys and Dolls (Tony nomination), among others. Lane will return to Broadway this fall in the revival of The Front Page alongside John Slattery and John Goodman, followed by a run in the National Theatre revival of Angels in America in London, beginning in April 2017.

All proceeds from the annual benefit event will support MTC's mission as a leading nonprofit theater company producing contemporary plays on and off-Broadway, nurturing new talent through their Artistic Development Program, and developing the next generation of theatergoers and theater makers through their Education Program.
