Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Jane Lynch moves on from Glee, but still singing

Though ‘Glee’ isn’t what made Jane Lynch a household name, it is one of Lynch’s largest projects to date. Now that FOX is finally bringing the series to a close, the actors that have stayed-true throughout the years, now have more time to branch out. Seeing Jane Lynch reminds me more of the film ‘Best in Show,” than her hilarious role on Glee, but her fans might want to watch the actor sing her heart out on stage, a rather large departure from her snarky character in a tracksuit.
 
Having an Emmy and a Golden Globe under her belt, Lynch will be performing at the popular 54 Below for her solo concert debut. Lynch of course played Sue Sylvester on Glee, but she did just finish her Broadway debut as Miss Hannigan in Annie, Jane will now provide audiences at 54 Below with four unforgettable June nights.
 
Jane began her theatrical career and developed her comic skills at The Second City, Steppenwolf Theatre and in many church basements all over the greater Chicago-land area. In addition to Glee, Jane’s TV credits include Desperate Housewives and Weeds, as well as the final season of The L Word opposite Cybill Shepherd. She has had recurring roles on Two and a Half Men, where she was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress, Criminal Minds and The New Adventures of Old Christine. With her wit and luminous stage presence, Jane served as the host for the 63rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards.
 
Jane also has a long list of film credits, including Julie & Julia; Christopher Guest’s For Your Consideration, A Mighty Wind and Best in Show; Talladega Nights; The 40 Year Old Virgin; Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events and many more. $85-95 cover charge for 6/18, 6/20 & 6/21 shows. $75-85 cover charge for 6/19 show. $25 food & beverage minimum.
