Mr. Lane being Mr. Lane, one of the best comic marksmen in the theater, he repeatedly hits the bulls-eye that automatically sets off an audiences laughter.

Why See Butley?

Nathan Lane appears in the title role in a critically acclaimed production that played at the Huntington Theatre in 2003.

Butley, a university professor, shares his office and his flat with his former star pupil. He must face the ultimate breakdown of his marriage and of his intense friendship with his roomate, all while entangled in petty university politics and unease about student dissent.
