DallasDallas Summer Musicals may have never had a star billing as big as it has gathered for its 2018 Gala: Jane Lynch and Matthew Morrison (both best known for TV's Glee, but they both have plenty of film credits, and Morrison is a bona fide Broadway star), and the fantastic actress/singer Shoshana Bean. Lynch will emcee the evening, which is Nov. 3 at the Music Hall at Fair Park.

 

We'll let the news release below say the rest:

After much anticipation, Dallas Summer Musicals (DSM) has finally revealed the talent lineup for its unforgettable annual Gala, An Evening with the Best of Broadway. At a launch party held this week, 2018 DSM Gala Co-Chairs Cara Owens and John Clutts unveiled, to much excitement, a talented trifecta of performers for the event, including notable actors Jane Lynch and Matthew Morrison, famed for their work in the musical-comedy television series Glee and renowned Broadway performer Shoshana Bean. Surprise special guests, to be announced at a later date, will join the star-studded lineup for a spectacular evening of Broadway.

“We are ecstatic to announce this lineup of powerhouse names set to perform at the 2018 DSM Gala,” said Owens. “Jane Lynch, Matthew Morrison and Shoshana Bean all possess an exceptional breadth of talent that will wow every guest in attendance,” agreed Clutts.

The 2018 DSM Gala lineup showcases three artists who have each risen through the ranks to achieve their independent success. These versatile performers have garnered immeasurable success and recognition through their work on Broadway and in the television, film and music industries.

Lynch, who will serve as the event’s emcee, is renowned for her comedic timing and versatile range. She is best known for starring alongside Morrison in the hit television show Glee as the one-liner powerhouse coach “Sue Sylvester”. For her role as Sylvester, Lynch won numerous awards, including the Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress, Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role and the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series. In addition to her role on Glee, Lynch has garnered a long list of film and television credits, including roles in Julie & JuliaThe Three StoogesTalladega Nights and more. Lynch made her Broadway debut in 2013 as “Miss Hannigan” in a production of Annie.

Morrison has also accumulated a vast collection of reputable career spotlights, receiving his big break after winning the role of “Link Larkin” in 2002 the original Broadway cast of Hairspray. He was nominated for a Tony® Award for his role in The Light in the Piazza and most recently appeared on Broadway as “J.M. Barrie” in Finding Neverland for which he received two Drama Desk Award nominations. His other Broadway credits include roles in Footloose, 10 Million Miles and the Tony® Award-winning revival of South Pacific. Alongside Lynch, Morrison rose to fame for his role as glee club director “Will Schuester” in Glee.

Bean is highly regarded in the Broadway community for her varied and versatile performances. She is best known for being the first to take over the role of “Elphaba” in the original Broadway production of Wicked, following the departure of Idina Menzel. Her most recent Broadway credits include “Fanny Brice” in Funny Girl and “Cee-Cee Bloom” in the new musical adaptation of Beaches, for which she earned a Jeff Award nomination for Best Lead Actress in a Musical. Bean has lent her voice to countless films and television shows and her four independent solo albums have all topped the iTunes charts, with her latest album Spectrum landing at #1 on the Billboard Jazz Charts.

An Evening with the Best of Broadway is an annual celebration of DSM and the magic of musical theatre. Proceeds will support the non-profit Dallas Summer Musicals’ mission to bring the very best of Broadway to North Texas and its education and community programs. DSM brings the beauty of musical theatre to many through programs such as DSM High School Musical Theatre AwardsSeats for VetsSeats for KidsKid’s ClubHear Us Now!™and the DSM Community Performance.

Guests will enjoy an incredible culinary experience, luxury auction items and an unforgettable evening of musical entertainment. This will be a wonderful opportunity to indulge in everything you love about Broadway and the DSM experience at the historic Music Hall at Fair Park.
