Jane Lynch: A Swingin' Little Christmas

Mary D'Angelo Performing Arts Center

Tuesday, December 04, 2018 - 7:30 pm

Broadway and Emmy Award-winning actress Jane Lynch and her posse are back for a comically kitsch throwback to the old WWII USO canteen and 1960's Christmas specials of yore. Lynch is joined by fellow comedic actress Kate Flannery (The Office) and dapper Glee vocal arranger Tim Davis. Together they navigate in and out of tight three-part harmonies, backed by the Tony Guerrero Quintet, whose leader penned the original tunes, including the comedic "Sentimental Christmas" and the elegant "Winter's Never Cold (When You're Around)." Covers include "We Three Kings" and an especially jaunty "Up on the Housetop."

JANE LYNCH is an Emmy and Golden Globe winner for her portrayal of Sue Sylvester on Glee, and she is currently the two-time Emmy Award-winning host of NBC's Hollywood Game Night. In 2015, Jane embarked on her own live concert tour, See Jane Sing, with Kate Flannery, Tim Davis and The Tony Guerrero Quintet. Their holiday album, A Swingin' Little Christmas! is available from iTunes, Amazon and other outlets.

KATE FLANNERY is best known for her nine seasons as Meredith on NBC’s The Office. Recent TV appearances include The New Girl, American Housewife, Another Period and Brooklyn Nine Nine. Kate is also Jane Lynch’s sidekick in her anti-cabaret act, See Jane Sing, having played the Kennedy Center, Joe’s Pub and 30 cities across the country. Her original cult comedy lounge act, the Lampshades, regularly plays comedy festivals and in and around Hollywood. 

TIM DAVIS has been singing and touring for the past three years in See Jane Sing. Tim’s music producing and singing credits include all six seasons of Glee, ABC’s Boy Band, the feature film Love Is Afoot, Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl 2017 halftime show, A Pentatonix Christmas, Barbra Streisand’s 2017 concert tour, Jane Lynch’s A Swingin’ Little Christmas!, The People’s Choice Awards, Josh Groban’s Stages, Childish Gambino, the feature film Beauty and the Beast and TV's The Americans and The Goldbergs

THE TONY GUERRERO QUINTET has been a staple of the Southern California jazz scene for many years. Featuring Tony Guerrero (trumpet and piano), Matt Johnson (drums), Mark Visher (woodwinds), Dave Siebels (keyboards) and David Miller (stand-up bass), they are currently touring the country with A Swingin’ Little Christmas! with Jane Lynch, Kate Flannery and Tim Davis. The album of the same name landed a spot in the top twenty of the Billboard charts, and the single "Winter's Never Cold," an original Tony Guerrero composition, went to #8 on the Billboard charts. The album is available on iTunes.

The 2018-19 MIAC Live season is made possible through the generosity of Scott Enterprises, Cumulus Media and the Erie County Gaming Revenue Authority.
