Nathan Lane Will No Longer Do Musicals

Broadway legend Nathan Lane dropped a bombshell on 710 WOR’s Len Berman and Michael Riedel in the Morning program — he’s no longer doing musicals. 

“It’s a young man’s game,” Lane told Riedel and morning newsman Joe Bartlett, who was filling in for Berman. “They’re very hard to get right, and I just don’t have it in me to do eight a week of a musical.”

Lane, 67, a three-time Tony Award-winner, most famously starred in musicals such as A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum and The Producers. He is currently starring in the Broadway play Pictures from Home, which runs until April 30th at Studio 54.

The play is based on the Larry Sultan book of the same name; Lane appears as Sultan’s father. “The play is sort of taking place in the last two years of this artistic process of Larry taking these pictures… and the parents… wanted this project to be over,” Lane told the show.
