If you follow this blog and somehow haven’t become a Gleek yet, I can’t understand why not.
The show, which stars Broadway favorites Lea Michele and Matthew Morrison, has already featured Broadway big-shots Victor Garber (Sweeney Todd, Assassins, Damn Yankees), Kristin Chenoweth (Wicked) and Debra Monk (Curtains, Chicago, Company) and showtunes like “Maybe This Time” from Cabaret and “I Could Have Danced All Night” from My Fair Lady.
Broadway Gleeks can continue to get more excited: Lea’s Spring Awakening co-star, Jonathan Groff, has signed on to perform in at least 5 episodes of the show,
and rumor has it that Cheyenne Jackson, the star of Finian’s Rainbow on Broadway, is scheduled to make a guest appearance in one of the upcoming episodes.
The show’s tunes are hidden a little better than its stars, but thanks to YouTube, we do know that we’ll be hearing Lea Michele and Chris Colfer singing “Defying Gravity” from Wicked. Check out a clip of the song:
Glee just keeps getting better and better for lovers of Broadway musical theater!

I’ve just found out that they wrote the part for Cheyenne Jackson, but he got the flu when they flew him out to shoot. 😦
Maybe he’ll appear in Season 2?
Thanks for providing the youtube link.

I’ve seen the Wicked two times. I really enjoyed the show. Last year I got a cheap ticket and I went, it was really a great show. I will go see it for the third time next weekend. So I’ll be analyzing as well as enjoying the show.
