Prepare to see a bit less of Sue Sylvester on Glee later this season, because actress Jane Lynch is preparing to make her Broadway debut!
New York Daily News reports that the 52-year-old Glee star will join the cast of Annie at the Palace Theater for a limited eight-week run beginning May 16.
Jane will be playing the part of Miss Hannigan, the mean-spirited head of the orphanage who seems to enjoy making Annie’s life miserable. (Sounds a lot like one Sue Sylvester, don’t you think?)
Her co-star Matthew Morrison (Mr. Schuester), who has himself starred in many a Broadway show, was the first Glee cast member to share the news on Twitter.
Congrats to Jane on her Broadway debut. We can’t wait to hear how she does!
