We wish we could use Sue Sylvester's megaphone to shout out the following good news!

Glee has tapped yet another member from the original cast of the musical Spring Awakening to join its ranks!

Phoebe Strole, who was in the the 2006 Broadway hit with Glee star Lea Michele, will rejoin her fellow alum next season!

Phoebe will play Penny Owen, a college sophomore who will be Sam's new love interest on the show.

Penny has dreams of becoming a nurse, which is good for news for Chord Overstreet, who plays Sam. Nurses have to know how to give good mouth-to-mouth!

Looks like Phoebe's going to be getting some major Chord!

We don't know yet how much Lea and Phoebe will interact, but we do know that it will be so nice for Lea to have an old friend on set with her. That's sure to awake a spring in her step!

Indeed, Lea seemed to be over the moon to find out that Phoebe would be joining Glee, as she tweeted out the following:

Jonathan Groff Sings Like Sutton In Anything Goes!

Monday night, singer/actor Jonathan Groff took to the stage at the MCC Theater’s Miscast benefit in Manhattan!

Each year, the event gets Broadway stars to play roles in which they’d never be cast in and has them perform!

Pretty HIGHlarious!

The Spring Awakening star personified Reno Sweeney Sutton Foster in Anything Goes when he put on a little song and dance, recreating the eight-minute number!

Check out the video of his performance (above)!!!

He is SO cute, we can barely stand it!!!!

Could Lea Michele Be Reprising Her Role As Wendla In The Spring Awakening Movie?

lea-spring.jpg

Hear that? That's the sound of every Lea Michele die-hard fan on the planet holding their breath and waiting to hear the answer to the question. Exhale friends, because the answer is …

Maybe.

When word got around that Spring Awakening was being made into a movie, the obvious choices for the leads were the kids who made the musical famous on Broadway, namely Lea and her bestie friend Jonathan Groff. While The Groff's name isn't being thrown around in casting discussions (so we know), director McG spilled at the premiere of This Means War last night that Princess Lea has been approached for the part of Wendla … and she's considering it! According to McG:

Spring Awakening Writers Working On New Alice In Wonderland Musical!

Filed under: Music MinuteBroadway Babies

Another re-interpretation of this story?

Granted, if anyone can make it work, it's them!

Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik, who are the authors behind the Tony Award-winning Spring Awakening, are currently workshopping a brand new show at London's National Theatre called Alice By Heart, which is inspired by Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland!

Sater explains of the piece, which was commisioned by the group's Connections program:

"It's about how to leave childhood behind and the challenge and struggle in that."

He goes on to say that the show will add a heightened sense of urgency and danger to the material, and will employ ensemble storytelling to explore "themes of grief and loss."

With the script and score expected to be completed in July, there will be a workshop presentation in the UK in November. Through the Connections program, 30 youth theatres will then get the chance to stage the show in February of 2012, and representatives from the National will attend them, and the best one will get to perform their version at the National Theatre the following summer!

What a wonderful opportunity for so many! We have a feeling that with this much talent going into it all, the show will have no problem getting picked up for a professional run in London or on Broadway!

Best of luck to everyone involved!

We can't wait to see how it turns out!
