Emmy Award-winning actress and Dolton native Jane Lynch will preside over the announcement of the 2014 equity Joseph Jefferson Award nominations Thursday, Aug. 21, in Chicago.

A Second City and Steppenwolf Theatre veteran, "Glee" star Lynch got her start in Chicago, where she played Carol Brady in the Annoyance Theatre's long-running cult hit, "The Real Live Brady Bunch."

Established in 1968, the Jeff Awards recognize excellence in Chicago and suburban theater. A non-equity wing was established in 1974 to recognize nonunion productions.

The Jeff Awards will be announced during an Oct. 13 ceremony at Drury Lane Theatre in Oakbrook Terrace. See jeffawards.org after Aug. 21 for a list of nominees and information on the ceremony.
