Broadway Buzz: Jane Lynch to Make Debut in Annie

 

More big news for Broadway today: Playbill is reporting that Emmy Award-winning actress Jane Lynch, most famous for playing a bullying cheer coach on TV's "Glee," will make her Broadway debut in the role of orphanage matron Miss Hannigan in Annie from May 16 to July 14.

Two-time Tony Award-winning actress Katie Finneran, who has been playing the role at the Palace Theatre since the revival's opening late last year, is leaving to film a new NBC comedy series with Michael J. Fox. The role of Miss Hannigan is a popular one for comediennes, with luminaries like Dorothy Loudon, Carol Burnett and Nell Carter having performed it in years past.

And while she has never performed on Broadway before, Lynch is no stranger to the stage, having worked at Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre Company and The Second City. She has already earned an Emmy and Golden Globe Award for her work on TV.

Tickets are currently on sale through November 17, 2013. Visit AnnieTheMusical.com for more information and tickets.
