Early life

Nathan Lane was born Joseph Lane in Jersey City, New Jersey, on February 3, 1956.[4] His father, Daniel, was a truck driver and an aspiring tenor who died in 1967 from alcoholism when Lane was eleven. His mother, Nora, was a housewife and secretary who suffered from bipolar disorder and died in 2000.[5][6][7] He has two older brothers, Daniel Jr. and Robert.[8] Lane's parents were Catholics of Irish descent.[9] He was named after his uncle, a Jesuit priest.[10] Lane attended Catholic schools in Jersey City, including Jesuit-run St. Peter's Preparatory School, where he was voted Best Actor in 1974, and years later received the 2011 Prep Hall of Fame Professional Achievement Award.[11]

Film and theatre career


Accepted to Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia on a drama scholarship, he was accompanied on what was supposed to be his first day there by his older brother Dan. Discovering that the scholarship would not cover enough of his expenses, he decided to leave, and work for a year to earn some money. "I remember him saying to me, 'College is for people who don't know what they want to do,'" his brother said.[8] Because there already was a Joseph Lane registered with Actors' Equity, he changed his name to Nathan after the character Nathan Detroit from the musical Guys and Dolls.[12] He moved to New York City where, after a long struggle, his career began to take off, first with some brief success in the world of stand-up comedy with partner Patrick Stack,[13][14] and later with Off-Broadway productions at Second Stage Theatre, the Roundabout Theatre, and the Manhattan Theatre Club.[] He made his Broadway debut in a 1982 revival of Noël Coward's Present Laughter as Roland Maule (Drama Desk nomination) with George C. Scott, Kate Burton, Dana Ivey, Bette Henritze, Elizabeth Hubbard, Jim Piddock, and Christine Lahti.[15]

His second Broadway appearance was in the 1983 musical Merlin, starring Chita Rivera and magician Doug Henning. This was followed by Wind in the Willows as Mr. Toad, Some Americans Abroad at Lincoln Center, and the national tour of Neil Simon's Broadway Bound.[16]

Off-Broadway productions included Love (the musical version of Murray Schisgal's Luv),[17]Measure for Measure directed by Joseph Papp in Central Park, for which he received the St. Clair Bayfield Award,[18]The Common Pursuit, The Film Society, In a Pig's Valise, She Stoops to Conquer,[19]The Merry Wives of Windsor and A Midsummer Night's Dream. He also appeared at the Williamstown Theatre Festival in The School for Scandal and John Guare's Moon Over Miami.[20]


Nathan Lane at the 1998 Primetime Emmy Awards

In 1991, Lane appeared with George C. Scott again in a revival of Paul Osborne's On Borrowed Time at the Circle in the Square Theatre on Broadway.[21] In 1992, he starred in the hit revival of Guys and Dolls, playing Nathan Detroit, the character who lent him his name, opposite Peter Gallagher and Faith Prince.[22] For this performance, he received his first Tony nomination,[23] as well as Drama Desk[24] and Outer Critics Circle Awards.[25] In 1992, he won an Obie Award for Sustained Excellence of Performance.[26]

His professional association with his close friend the playwright Terrence McNally, whom he met in 1987,[27] includes roles in The Lisbon Traviata (Drama Desk and Lucille Lortel Awards, and Outer Critics Circle nomination),[28][29]Bad Habits, Lips Together, Teeth Apart, Love! Valour! Compassion! (Obie, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle Awards),[28][30][31]Dedication or the Stuff of Dreams, which opened in 2005 (Drama Desk nomination),[32][33]The Last Mile on PBS Great Performances, and the film version of Frankie and Johnny.

The early 1990s began a stretch of successful Broadway shows for Lane. In 1993, he portrayed Sid Caesar-like Max Prince in Neil Simon's Laughter on the 23rd Floor, inspired by Simon's early career writing sketches for Your Show of Shows.[34] In 1996, he starred in the hit revival of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, for which he won the Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards.[16] In 1998, he appeared Off-Broadway in Jon Robin Baitz's revised 1984 comedy, Mizlansky/Zilinsky or 'Schmucks'.[35][36]

His association with Stephen Sondheim began with the workshop of Assassins.[] in 1989. In 1999, he appeared with Victor Garber in the workshop of Wise Guys (later retitled Road Show).[37] His collaboration with Sondheim continued when Lane revised the original book for and starred in the Broadway debut of the composer's The Frogs at Lincoln Center in 2004.[38] The Sondheim song, "Little Dream,"[39] in the film The Birdcage, for which Lane received his first Golden Globe nomination,[40] was supposedly written especially for him.[] The film, an American remake of the classic French farce La Cage aux Folles, was directed by Mike Nichols with a screenplay by Elaine May, and starred Robin Williams, Lane, and Gene Hackman, and went on to be a big success. This was followed by the dark comedy Mouse Hunt, one of the first films to come out of the newly formed DreamWorks Studios, in which he co-starred with British comedian Lee Evans and Christopher Walken. It was also the feature film debut of Gore Verbinski, who later went on to direct Pirates of the Caribbean.

In 1994, Lane voiced Timon, the meerkat, in Disney's blockbuster animated film The Lion King and reprised the role in its sequels.[41] In 1995, Lane voiced the meerkat in the early episodes of Timon & Pumbaa.

In 2001, he starred as Max Bialystock in the blockbuster musical version of Mel Brooks's The Producers, a role that earned him his second Tony as well as Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards.[47] The following year he would go on to reprise his role as Snowbell in Stuart Little 2. He then appeared as Vincent Crummles in a film adaptation of Nicholas Nickleby, for which the cast received the Ensemble Acting award from the National Board of Review. In 2004, he replaced Richard Dreyfuss in The Producers in the West End. Dreyfuss was let go just a week before the show's first preview at London's Theatre Royal Drury Lane.[48] Lane went on to win the Olivier Award as Best Actor in a Musical.[49] His performance in the film version, opposite Broadway co-star, Matthew Broderick as Leo Bloom, earned him his second Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy.[50] In 2003 he starred Off-Broadway in Trumbo: Red, White, and Blacklisted.[51]

In 2005, Lane rejoined Broderick for a successful limited run of The Odd Couple.[52] In 2006, he took on a primarily dramatic role in a revival of Simon Gray's Butley, having played the role to great success at The Huntington Theater in Boston in 2003.[53][54] He and Broderick received adjacent stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in a joint ceremony on January 9, 2006,[55] and were immortalized in wax as Max and Leo at Madame Tussauds Museum in New York City on January 16, 2009.[56] In 2008, he played the President of the United States in the David Mamet political satire, November, directed by Joe Mantello.[57] This was followed by the critically acclaimed 2009 revival of Waiting for Godot (Outer Critics Circle nomination)[58] in which he played Estragon opposite Bill Irwin's Vladimir.[59] He was a 2008 American Theatre Hall of Fame inductee.[60]


In 2010, Lane starred in the musical version of The Addams Family as Gomez (Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle nominations).[61] That year he also received a Drama League Award for Distinguished Achievement in Musical Theater. Committed to starring in a revival of the Eugene O'Neill play The Iceman Cometh at Chicago's Goodman Theatre in 2012, Lane assumed the role of Hickey, with Brian Dennehy playing the role of Larry Slade in a production directed by the Goodman's Artistic Director, Robert Falls.[13] Receiving rave reviews,[62][63] it won six Jeff Awards, including Best Ensemble, Director, and Production,[64] and is the most successful show to date in the theater's history.[65] In the spring of 2013, Lane returned to Broadway in The Nance, a Lincoln Center production of a new play by Douglas Carter Beane that was directed by Jack O'Brien. For this performance, he received Tony and Drama Desk Award nominations and won the Outer Critics Circle Award and the 2013 Drama League Award for Distinguished Performance.[66][67] The play aired on PBS Live From Lincoln Center in 2014.[68]

Lane reprised his acclaimed portrayal on Broadway at the Neil Simon Theatre, and won the Tony, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Featured Actor in a Play.
