’The Gilded Age’ Star Nathan Lane on Playing a ‘Silly Snob,’ Reuniting with Christine Baranski and His Emotional ‘Only Murder’ Moments

Click here to read the full article. Nathan Lane has long been a master shapeshifter on theater and television. From donning garish red suits on “The Producers” to South Beach drag fabulosity on “The Birdcage” and personifying a sly and slim meerkat on “The Lion King,” Lane is always eye-catching, in a multitude of ways.

How Nathan Lane And Ernie Sabella's Audition Changed The Lion King

The production trajectory for a Broadway musical is a unique beast. Shows are built with constant rewriting and retooling based on the people who come in and out of the production. After an endless collaborative parade of trials and errors lead to a finish product, you can put in front of an audience knowing everyone working on the project is on the same page and working towards the same goal. A lot of the time, people are cast as characters without material being written for them so the authors can write specifically to their strengths. In the audio commentary for the original Broadway stage recording of "Sunday in the Park with George," Stephen Sondheim jokingly says, "I don't want to write a note until the show's cast." Working in specificity is a tremendous help in creating a character. Generalities and vagueness are killers of empathy.
