Lane coming to ‘Dinner’ in Roundabout’s new digs

Tony-award winning thesp to topline Zaks-helmed B'Way revival

NEW YORK — Nathan Lane will star in a new Broadway revival of Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman’s “The Man Who Came to Dinner.” Jerry Zaks will direct the production, which will begin performances June 30 at the Roundabout Theater Co.’s new theater on 42nd Street.

Lane’s extensive stage credits include a Tony-winning turn in “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,” “Love! Valour! Compassion!,” “Laughter on the 23rd Floor,” “Guys and Dolls,” “The Lisbon Traviata” and “Lips Together, Teeth Apart.” Lane recently starred in the workshop production of the new Stephen Sondheim musical “Wise Guys.” That show’s planned arrival on Broadway this spring has been indefinitely postponed.

Lane’s films include “The Birdcage” and “Mouse Hunt,” and he recently starred in the briefly seen NBC sitcom “Encore! Encore!” Zaks is a two-time Tony winner for “Six Degrees of Separation” and “Guys and Dolls,” and has more recently directed the Broadway productions of “Epic Proportions” and “The Civil War.”

The revival of the 1939 Kaufman and Hart comedy will be the second production at the Roundabout Theater Co.’s new Broadway home, the former Selwyn Theater, which reopens after extensive renovation this spring with a new production of “Uncle Vanya,” starring Derek Jacobi and directed by Michael Mayer.
