Three-time Tony Award-winner Nathan Lane, fresh from his triumph in The Producers, will perform the title role in Butley, a dark comedy about the unfortunate life of a literary professor who suffers the loss of his wife and his lover all in one day. When Butley's estranged wife Anne announces her intention to marry a mutual friend, and his live-in lover and office mate Joey moves out to join another man, Butley is even more out of sorts than usual. Irascible, brilliant, manic, and above all witty, Ben Butley is one of contemporary theatre's great tragicomic roles.
