One of theater’s biggest stars Nathan Lane is back on Broadway in a new play.
Lane is starring in "Pictures From Home" alongside Danny Burstein and Zoe Wanamaker. It opens Thursday night.
The play is a family portrait that ultimately exposes difficulties with those relationships. The play is based on the photo memoir of the same title by Larry Sultan.
Lane grew up in Jersey City and graduated from Saint Peter's Prep.
