Nathan Lane won raves and a Tony nomination for his performance in Douglas Carter Beane's 2013 stage drama delving into the life of a gay burlesque performer in 1937 New York. Recorded live at Lincoln Center for screenings in movie theaters across the country, the play contrasts Mills' acceptance for his hilarious onstage antics as The Nance, a stereotypically camp homosexual character, with his difficult existence offstage as an aging man looking for love and acceptance. Ben Brantley of The New York Times praised Lane's "shiny expertise and dark conviction" in the role, which won the actor an Outer Critics Circle Award. Learn More

This was a great event--both the film and the party were very enjoyable. My only complaint was that the venues did not seem to be set up to accommodate so many people--the film started 45 minutes late due to the ridiculous lines for the restrooms and popcorn. The party, likewise, was so crowded that you could barely walk from place to place. Nonetheless, I still had an enjoyable evening. The film, Q&A, and food at the party were all great!

Sunset Strip and Post Party
Friday, April 27th at 8:15pm
Birthed as a dusty trading route at the turn of last century, Sunset Strip became the world’s center of gravity for music, glamour, fashion, sex, and decadence. This curvy, mile-and-a-half strip of road falls just outside LA city limits, beyond the reach of LAPD, where it grew into a place like no other on the planet. A place where dreams are started, chased, loved, hated, displayed, ignored, ended, or all of the above. You make your last stand in Eden, and this is Eden.
