"The show, cabaret in style, features her singing abilities and comedic wit that were on display in "Glee," without the villainy of her character.” – Los Angeles Times
Following rave reviews and sold out shows, Jane Lynch will be taking her musical comedy, “See Jane Sing” on the road this summer. The cabaret tour, which kicks off at the Newmark Theatre in Portland, OR on June 1st will bring the star to many cities throughout the U.S. including Chicago, Seattle and Dallas.
Not your typical Broadway narrative, Lynch, accompanied by a five-piece band, builds the evening around her musical chops and comedic wit and charm. Joining her on stage for a portion of the show are special guests Kate Flannery of “The Office,” who plays Lynch’s mischievous vocal partner and Tim Davis, Glee’s former vocal arranger. During the live performance, the Emmy and Golden Globe winner takes audiences on a musical journey through a world of songs from Broadway to cabaret with new takes on “If Wishes Were Rainbows”, “Mr. Monotony”, and “Far From the Home I Love.” New to this tour is Lynch’s epic take on Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” and a medley of songs that made her cry as a child including “Puff the Magic Dragon.”
“See Jane Sing is one of the most joyous experiences of my career,” says Jane Lynch. “I love everything about theatre and performing in front of a live audience is so rewarding.”
Lynch first cut her theatrical teeth at The Second City, Steppenwolf Theatre and in many church basements all over the greater Chicagoland area. In addition to hosting Hollywood Game Night, Jane’s recent film and television credits include A.C.O.D, Three Stooges, Wreck-It Ralph, Julie & Julia, Shrek Forever After, The Post Grad Survival Guide, Paul and Brownie Masters, Glee, Angel from Hell.
