Jane Lynch, who has won Emmy and Golden Globe awards for her role as Sue Sylvester on the series Glee, made her nightclub debut last week in front of a three-piece band at 54 Below in Manhattan.
The cabaret show displayed another side of Lynch, who has wanted to return to the stage since her Broadway debut last year as Miss Hannigan in Annie.
When asked by the Associated Press why it took so long to do cabaret, Lynch said – “I didn’t have any conscious plans to do Broadway but I always wanted to. So when I got the Annie gig, everything in me screamed `No!’ but of course I said, `Yes.’ I was so happy I did it and I got the bug back. I saw (Glee co-star) Matt Morrison perform here and I said to myself, `Self, this would be fun for you, Jane.’ And then I got the call: Would you like four days? Everything inside of me screamed `No!’ but I said, `Yes.’
