Jane Lynch will be making her Broadway debut this spring in Annie. She’s taking over for Katie Finneran as Miss Hannigan, Lynch tells the AP, and her run starts May 16. Lynch has perfected her horrifically abusive caretaker character after four seasons on Glee, so Miss Hannigan seems to be pretty squarely in Lynch’s wheelhouse. There are only so many ways to terrorize children and yet somehow be a fan favorite.
