Glee-Cap: The Back-Up Plan.
by Robert Lawlor - Apr 29, 2014

I'm going to be real honest with you, Gleeks - I'm not quite sure what to say to intro this week's recap - I could reference "Only A Older Woman" from Boy from Oz because of Shirley MacLaine being involved in helping make Mr. Blaine Warbler into a star, but how many of you would get that reference? So, let's just get on with the show and see where the stars take us, shall we? Now, quiet please, there's a lady up there. Yes, another Boy from Oz reference - look it up, especially given Hugh Jackman is our Tony 2014 host! Rachel is soaking in the stardom of being a Broadway diva - autographs, photos, rumors of a Tony nomination. Rachel has signed with a fancy high power agent who doesn't seem to think that Rachel has much of a future beyond Fanny, leaving the Broadway diva shocked. Kurt informs Blaine that a wealthy socialite (Shirley MacLaine) is coming, and he's been picked to perform for her - and he's recruiting his fiance to join him in singing "Story of My Life" by One Direction. Santana and Mercedes chat as Mercedes laments about how her record company doesn't hear her sound, while Santana laments having no real direction, thus prompting Mercedes to ask Santana to help her with her music - channel the power of "River Deep, Mountain High" y'all. Rachel goes about her Broadway schedule, while performing "Wake Me Up" by Avicii as she ponders her future beyond Fanny, which seems empty. After the show, Rachel is approached by someone from FOX about auditioning for a pilot for them, but the audition is happening at the same time as a performance, leaving our Broadway diva with a big dilemma. ..Does this diva need her stage or is she seeing the glitz and glamour of Hollywood?
