"Glee" Star Jane Lynch Brings Her Song + Dance (+ Trademark Wit) to SF

This weekend, actress Jane Lynch is coming to town. Best known to tweens as Sue Sylvester in Glee—and to everyone else as part of the comedic genius of such gems as A Mighty Wind, Best in Show, and The 40-Year-Old Virgin—she’s showing fans another side of herself with her new musical comedy show “See Jane Sing,” a combination of cabaret, comedy, and show tunes, on Saturday, May 9 at the Palace of Fine Arts. We caught up with Lynch about her Broadway run in “Annie,” her trademark humor, and food worthy of the f-bomb.

SFJAZZ Honors Joni Mitchell: No Regrets, Coyote

King—who exudes the ease and innate savoir faire one associates with Duke Ellington—is the founder, choreographer, and force behind Lines Ballet, currently in the midst of its 2015 spring season at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. The world premiere of Biophony, his collaboration with natural soundscape artist Bernie Krause and composer Richard Blackford is a stunning, moving, and, at times, frightening testimony to navigating the pitfalls inherent in one of the scariest things an artist ever has to face: a really great idea.

Q&A With "About A Boy" Author Nick Hornby

British author Nick Hornby’s obsessions with music and sports have been well reflected in About a Boy, High Fidelity, and a slew of other writings, but recently, the auteur has delved into different themes: He wrote the screenplay for Wild, the film starring Reese Witherspoon based on Cheryl Strayed’s bestseller; and his new novel, Funny Girl, centers on a woman who unexpectedly achieves fame in 1960s London when she becomes the star of a wildly popular BBC comedy series. 

In Mexico City, Things Are Hotter Than Ever

For some, Mexico City comes with a warning label. When I posted on Facebook that I was going, my sister emailed me an article about beheadings. A tennis pal cautioned me to take only radio-controlled taxis, to avoid the risk of being taken for a metaphorical (and literal) ride.
