Lea Michele, Chris Colfer & The Glee Gang Reveal Their Hopes & Dreams For Their On-Screen Counterparts!

rachel berry waking up gifs

It's pretty much safe to say the Glee cast is one of the hardest working ensembles on TV. What other show do U know that does rigorous dance routines and belt songs every week?

Exactly.

With the first part of the 100th episode set to air tonight, it's clear as day the end of McKinley as we know it is on the horizon. Not to mention the end of a Glee era by the time season 6 rolls around!

So, before it all ends, the cast members revealed what they'd like to see happen for their on-screen personas!

Lea Michele declared she wanted to do a lazy episode, which would totally be a far cry from Rachel Berry's hard working ethic:

Pretty Woman Musical In The Works For Broadway! You Might Want To Consider Selling Your Body To Get Tickets!

Pretty Woman walking down the street…the street of Broadway, that is!

The director of Pretty Woman, Garry Marshall, is working with famed producer of theater and film Paula Wagner on a musical adaptation of the early '90s classic!

Garry will help write the musical's book alongside the film's screenwriter J.F. Lawton.

Ugh, this would be a fairy tale indeed!

We can just see someone like Anna Kendrick just owning the part of musical Vivian.

We guess we'll have to wait and see, but seriously, if they don't choreograph the sex scene on the piano into some erotic pas de deux, we'll be highly disappointed.

Perez Reviews: Rocky The Musical

Spider-Man is out and Rocky is in!

However, the similarities between these two shows are many!

We saw Spider-Man and we really enjoyed it. We enjoyed it so much that we saw it a second time.

We just saw the new musical based on the iconic Sylvester Stallone movie and we really enjoyed it. We enjoyed it so much we would see it a second time too!

And, just like Spider-Man, Rocky on Broadway features dazzling production and an underwhelming songs from an iconic musical act.

U2 lent their talent to the average score for Spidey and iconic songwriting duo Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Ragtime, Seussical, Once On This Island and more) are responsible for Rocky's just fine songs. Not bad. Not great.

There's no Let It Go here!

In fact, the best song in the show is the only one from the '80s film used, Eye Of The Tiger.

When that one cover is leaps and bounds better than the original songs, you know your musical is not the strongest musical.

But it doesn't need to be!

Like we said, the songs aren't bad. Just many feel generic and uninspired. And there's not enough variety and fun - at least not till later on in the show. When Apollo Creed joins Rocky in the ring for the big match and he busts out some Sugar Hill Gang flavor, that was some much needed spice that should have been sprinkled THROUGHOUT the show!

Overall, the score is too consistently serious and lacking fun.

However, every single visual element is more than fun! It is FABULOUS! It is breathtaking! It is innovative!

The scenic design by Christopher Barreca is straight-up GENIUS! It was so fresh! So grand! The scale of the show is huge! Giganctic flying sets! Such a 360 use of the space - literally!

For the big match, the first few rows are taken out of their seats and escorted up on the stage as the boxing ring moves out and over the audience!

Thrilling! And the energy for that finale is THROUGH THE ROOF!

The video design by Dan Scully and Pablo N. Molina was also so inspired and with such attention to detail!

Christopher Akerlind's lighting added so much to the show!

The choreography by Steven Hoggett and Kelly Devine- especially the stage fighting - was epic!!!!! The actors were SO CONVINCING in the ring! And that is not an easy task to pull off in the theater!

Major kudos and credit to director Alex Timbers for his vision and executing all these elements so flawlessly!

Ticketbuyers are definitely getting their money's worth with Rocky. Big show! Big production! And a BIG cast, lead by Andy Karl in the title role.

It is all but assured that Karl's FANTASTIC performance will ensure him a Tony nomination, and it will be hard to find another actor more deserving of that win!

We last saw Andy in the comedy The Mystery Of Edwin Drood on Broadway, so it was really revelatory to see him do something soooo different.

He sang beautifully. He acted beautifully! And he became the champion necessary to play this part! He's trained, transformed his body and gives audiences his all!

Truly impressive!

As for his Adrian, Margo Seibert did a super job with the acting. She's known mainly for her television work (Boardwalk Empire). And while she's a very capable singer, we just left wanting MORE vocally - range and tone - from her.

The rest of the cast does a fine job. But it's really all about Andy Karl.

He IS Rocky. And Rocky is a must-see, even if you won't go home and buy the original cast recording after.

A Contemporary Romeo & Juliet Musical TV Series Is Apparently In The Works For FOX & With It Would Come A Stage Version Too?!

Filed under: TV NewsGlee

romeo and juliet contemporary musical tv series coming

Oh no, this does not sound good.

Apparently a contemporary version of Romeo & Juliet is possibly coming to FOX as a TV series in the near future.

AND the worst best part is that it will be a musical show as well.

Wait, what?!?

The series will, basically, be something like if Glee were to meet William Shakespeare and they had some strange, music singing, rebellious, 21st century love-child.

Yeah, doesn't sound too appealing to us either.

Glee Brings Dynasty Level Drama, Even In Song! Watch Every Performance From Last Night's Episode HERE!

So many emotions!! Glee is back and it delivered a giant box of dramz to the front of our doorstep!

Can we just start off by saying the tension in the air during any, if not all, of Lea Michele and Naya Rivera's scenes were so thick you could cut that shiz with a butter knife?!

These two took frenemies to the next level!

Although Rachel was being a good friend by inviting Santana to her photo shoot and the two sing Brave (above), you can tell the wheels are turning in Santana's head! Which results in, well, you'll see!

Not only was there drama in NYC, but way back in Lima, Ohio, Jenna Ushkowitz's Tina and Kevin McHale's Artie were on the same boat, fighting for the valedictorian position!

So much drama and so little time! Take a look (below) at all the performances from last night's episode of Glee!

Anna Kendrick Swirls Lemon-Yellow Into Lemonade At The Last Five Years Screening!

Anna Kendrick is a reminder that spring is near at The Last Five Years screening!

Is it spring yet???

The answer is no, but Anna Kendrick in this sunny yellow dress beams springtime vibes straight into our soul!!

The lovely actress attended a special screening of the musical The Last Five Years in New York on Monday, and seriously brightened up the event's black carpet.

She arrived wearing a playful Christian Dior frock, which featured yellow fishnet over pink underlay and an asymmetrical hem. Naturally, Anna paired the dress with a pretty pink Dior clutch, black Dior pumps, and blingy Dior jewelry.

The look doesn’t pack the va-va-voom we know she can bring, but it was cute and appropriate for the occasion!

And who can say "no" to a pleasant reminder that spring's coming, right???
