Actress, comedian and singer Jane Lynch performs in Minneapolis for one night only in clever, off-beat cabaret show
Emmy Award-winning actress, comedian and singer Jane Lynch debuts at Orchestra Hall on Sunday, October 25 with her anything-goes cabaret show. Lynch has starred as mean-girl cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester on the FOX hit Glee and hosted Hollywood Game Night, was featured in the movie mockumentaries A Mighty Wind and Best in Show, and wowed on Broadway as Miss Hannigan in the revival of Annie. In this performance, Lynch sings her way through a witty comedy routine and favorite show-tunes, accompanied by her own ensemble of musicians. Joining them onstage are singer-actress Kate Flannery (Meredith Palmer from NBC’s The Office) and Tim Davis, vocal arranger for Glee and American Idol.
The performance is held at Orchestra Hall in downtown Minneapolis on Sunday, October 25, at 7 p.m., with tickets priced from $40 to $80. Tickets are available at minnesotaorchestra.org and by phone at 612-371-5656. For further purchasing details, refer to the information section at the conclusion of this press release.

Actress-singer-comedian Jane Lynch, who grew up near Chicago, first performed in Windy City locations such as Second City and Steppenwolf Theatre. She made her Broadway debut as Miss Hannigan in the 2013 production of Annie, at New York’s Leonard H. Goldenson Theater. Not long after, she decided to embark on her current musical comedy tour, “See Jane Sing.” On television, Lynch hosts NBC’s Hollywood Game Night, a role which brought her an Emmy Award as Outstanding Host, and she recently completed the final season of Glee, where her portrayal of Sue Sylvester won her both an Emmy and a Golden Globe. Also among her recent credits are Desperate Housewives, Weeds, STARZ series Party Down, Lifetime original series Lovespring and The L Word, in which she played opposite Cybill Shepherd. In addition, she had recurring roles on Two and a Half Men, Criminal Minds and The New Adventures of Old Christine.
Lynch is equally famed for her work in film, notably in A.C.O.D., Three Stooges, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Wreck-It Ralph, Julie & Julia, Shrek Forever After, The Post Grad Survival Guide, Paul and Brownie Masters and the Christopher Guest films Best in Show, A Mighty Wind and For Your Consideration. Her autobiography, Happy Accidents, topped national best-sellers lists including those of The New York Times and Los Angeles Times. Lynch, who currently resides in Los Angeles, is set to star in the new CBS comedy series, Angel from Hell, debuting this November.
