Spring Awakening and recent Les Miserables in Concert at the Hollywood Bowl star Lea Michele made her West Coast Debut this past weekend at L.A.'s renowned Upright Cabaret at Mark's Restaurant in West Hollywood with three sold-out SRO evenings under the direction of Richard Jay-Alexander with Music Director Ben Toth and the Upright Cabaret house band. Many of LA's finest came out to cheer her on, including her Les Miserables in Concert at the Hollywood Bowl co-star, and star of NBC's The Office, Melora Hardin as well as stage and screen star Peter Gallagher.

Joining Michele as a special guest star was Tony Award winner John Lloyd Young (Jersey Boys), who just played Marius alongside Michele's Eponine in the recent critically acclaimed Les Miserables in Concert at the Hollywood Bowl.

Lea Michele starred on Broadway in Spring Awakening as Wendla, receiving a 2007 Drama Desk Award nomination for Outstanding Actress in a Musical. She also performed in Fiddler On The Roof (Shprintze and Chava), Ragtime (Little Girl) and Les Miserables (Young Cosette). Off Broadway she appeared in Hot and Sweet (Naleen) and Spring Awakening (Wendla). Her regional credits include The Diary of Anne Frank (Anne) at Round House Theater, Ragtime (Little Girl) at Toronto's Ford Center. In workshop productions, she was seen in Samson and Delilah (Delilah), King (Anisette), Spring Awakening (Wendla) and Wuthering Heights (Lucy).  Her TV credits include "The Big Ten," "Third Watch," and "Guiding Light."
