Jane Lynch to star on Broadway in Annie
NEW YORK (AP) - Jane Lynch has something to be gleeful about - she's about to make her Broadway debut.
The Glee star said on Wednesday she'll be replacing Tony Award-winning actress Katie Finneran as the evil orphanage matron Miss Hannigan in the current revival of Annie.
"I'm so thrilled I can't see straight," the actress said by phone from her home in Los Angeles. "It's a preposterous fantasy come true."
Lynch, a veteran of Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre Company, will play Miss Hannigan for eight weeks, from May 16 through July 14.
