Today we are particularly thrilled to present a wide-ranging conversation with one of the most attention-grabbing and notable Broadway/Hollywood crossover stars of the new millennium all about her theatre past, GLEE present and potentially spectacular future - the charismatic and committed Lea Michele. Sparing some precious moments while promoting her new solo album release, LOUDER, Michele comments on not only her studio work and the current season of her FOX hit musical dramedy series but also sheds some light on much more, including sharing first news of the new stage revival of FUNNY GIRL currently in planning stages following the rights being purchased by GLEE creator and mastermind Ryan Murphy, set to mirror the Season Five storyline of GLEE itself as it presents the spectacular theatrics, unforgettable songs and backstage backstabbing involved with the FUNNY GIRL revival starring Rachel Berry (aka Michele). Additionally, Michele analyzes some of her favorite tracks on LOUDER and offers a glimpse into the creative process in creating some of the album's standout tracks such as 'Cue The Rain' and 'The Bells'. Plus, Michele opens up about her role alongside fellow Broadway heavyweights Megan Hilty and Bernadette Peters in the hotly anticipated new animated movie musical LEGENDS OF OZ: DOROTHY'S RETURN and clues us in on what we can expect from the multimedia extravaganza. Furthermore, Michele previews some upcoming GLEE showstoppers-to-be including two songs penned by Stephen Sondheim - 'No One Is Alone' from INTO THE WOODS and 'Not While I'm Around' from SWEENEY TODD - as well as the re-teaming with SPRING AWAKENING star Skylar Astin, while also offering the 411 on the show's big new move to a primary NYC focus. All of that, thoughts on GLEE co-star Idina Menzel's FROZEN performance on this week's Academy Awards telecast, opinions on a new LES MISERABLES revival, a look ahead to her upcoming autobiography BRUNETTE AMBITION and much, much more!
