Glee More Popular Than Ever- Glee Tour Confirmed
Since our last post about Glee, the show and cast have only gotten more popular. We predicted an upcoming Glee tour and soon thereafter producer Ryan Murphy confirmed that the Glee cast will be touring in Summer 2010, after Season 1 wraps up. Yay! Find Glee Live tickets.
Yes, there are some cringeful moments (recall Finn singing about being Quinn’s baby mama at a family dinner in last week’s episode), but those quirks are part of the fun.
There are also some—many—wow moments such as the diva-off between Rachel and Kurt singing Wicked’s Defying Gravity. I saw the Wicked Musical in San Francisco after the episode aired and then ended up watching that part of the Glee episode several times, courtesy of my DVR. You can hear Rachel’s version in the YouTube link below:
Glee’s popularity is evident with the incessant internet buzz, their performance of the national anthem at the third game of the 2009 World Series, the number of iTunes downloads and, of course, the casts’ now-regular features in weekly gossip magazine, US Weekly
The 12-person star cast comes with an impressive background, a few are highlighted below:
Will Schuester, Glee club director, is played by Matthew Morrison who has been in several Broadway productions, including Link Larkin in Hairspray.
Sue Sylvester, and nutty head cheerleading squad coach, is played by Jane Lynch who has many comedic wins under her belt, including The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Best in Show.
Rachel Berry, unpopular star of the Glee club and my personal favorite, is played by Lea Michele who starred as Wendla in Spring Awakening.
Quinn Fabray, former head cheerleader who is pregnant on the show, is played by Dianna Argon who has appeared on various television shows, such as Veronica Mars and CSI: NY.
Finn Hudson, quarterback of the football team, is played by native Canadian Cory Monteith who appeared in movies such as Final Destination 3 and Kyle XY.
