That org’s upcoming Rialto outing, Nathan Lane starrer “The Nance,” has booked a stint in the Lyceum Theater for an April opening. “Ann” premiered in 2010 in Galveston, Texas, and went on to play others cities including Chicago and Washington, D.C., where the show ran at the Kennedy Center early this year.
