Indianapolis Performing Arts Examiner has reviewed most of the performers who have graced The Cabaret at the Columbia Club stage during its 7-year history. And except for, possibly, Meow, Meow, billed as a "post-postmodern cabaret diva," (she performed there in 2014) Jane Lynch, was probably the most offbeat. This writer saw the first of her four shows, titled "See Jane Sing!" that were presented at The Cabaret Saturday through Monday.

Emmy and Golden Globe Lynch who is most well known for her role as irascible Sue Sylvester on FOX's "Glee," is the host of NBC's "Hollywood Game Night." The actor and singer's theatre credits include a stint on Broadway as Miss Hannigan in "Annie." Movie goers will remember her as Julia Child's (Meryl Streep) sister, Dorothy, in the 2009 film, "Julia & Julia."

She has blazed everything from Broadway stages to smokey jazz clubs, and now your living room. Lea DeLaria, who plays Big Boo on Orange is the New Black, has become a household name. DeLaria was the first openly gay comic on television with her Arsenio Hall show in 1993. She was on for 9 and a half minutes, during which she said the words "dyke," "fag," or "queer" 47 times.

"Best in class. A truly delightful experience - over the top!"
