THE hugely popular Limerick performer Jean McGlynn is set for a return to Dolan’s Warehouse on Wednesday
November 17 with her latest solo creation.

see Jean perform a newly devised revue show in her trademark cabaret style
complete with costumes, choreography and a four-piece band. The show will
feature Jean McGlynn present her unique interpretations of some well-known
songs from across a range of musical genres.
This ‘cabaret-style production’ will feature a mix of ballads, up-tempo songs, and rock music from the world of film and theatre as well as some classic songs made famous by artists such as Radiohead, Annie Lennox and The Doors.
