Jane Lynch & Kate Flannery: Two Lost Souls



Concert Series, Ordway Concert Hall

“An uproarious display of song and comedy.” – Get Out! Magazine

Emmy-award winning actor Jane Lynch (Glee) and Kate Flannery (The Office) put their one-of-a-kind spin on songs from Broadway to The Barry Sisters to the Swingin’ Sixties. Like the Rat Pack with a couple of broads.

Lynch is the two-time Emmy winning host of Hollywood Game Night and an Emmy and Golden Globe winner for her portrayal of Sue Sylvester on Glee.
