Backed by a five-piece band, Lynch will perform Broadway tunes, cabaret songs, and comedy. She’ll also welcome special guests Kate Flannery (Meredith on The Office) and Tim Davis, the former musical arranger on Glee. Cabaret-style seating on stage will give audiences an up-close view of the hilarity. Drinks and small plates will be served throughout the performance.
Jane Lynch is no stranger to Chicago. She grew up in Evergreen Park and Dalton, and performed at theaters including The Second City and Steppenwolf Theatre. More recently, Lynch made her Lyric Opera debut as emcee of the company’s 60th anniversary concert in November 2014.
“I can’t wait to come home and bring our cabaret show to Chicago for the holidays!” says Lynch. “Playing at the beautiful Lyric Opera theater for the very first time is the best gift of all!”
Performances of “See Jane Sing” will take place on Thursday, December 17 and Friday, December 18 at 7:00 PM and 9:30 PM. Tickets start at $50, and premium seating is also available. Complete information is available at lyricopera.org or by calling 312-827-5600.
