SOUND OFF: A Helluva GLEE FinaleSOUND OFF: A Helluva GLEE Finale
by Pat Cerasaro - May 25, 2011

Today marks the last episode review of the second season of Fox's hit musical dramedy series GLEE and I'm sure that many will agree with me that last night's show was as good a Season Two send-off as could have possibly been expected from Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, Ian Brennan and company given what has gone on this year so far. Besides the sights and sounds of the dramatic NYC wrap-up, the Broadway babies amongst the gleeks were treated to the extended returns of fan favorite Jonathan Groff and new cast member Cheyenne Jackson, in addition to a characteristically fabulous cameo by Broadway legend Patti LuPone - and the grand return of international singing sensation - as well as a participant in this column; in addition to Mr. Groff, yesterday (and, coming up: Mr. Jackson) - the big-voiced-diva known as Charice. While original songs dominated the episode, we were also treated to a mash-up of Madonna's 'I Love New York' and the Leonard Bernstein/Betty Comden/Adolph Green On the Town anthem 'New York, New York' (and a sample of the Kander & Ebb version elsewhere in the episode, 'for good' measure), in addition to one of the musical highlights of not only this episode, but all of Season Two - a song which was incidentally premiered in this very column on BroadwayWorld last week: Lea Michele and Chris Colfer putting their own spin on the WICKED curtain song 'For Good' on the very stage of the Gershwin Theater where the Broadway smash plays eight times a week - and has since 2004 - right where fellow GLEE guest stars Kristin Chenoweth and Idina Menzel first sang it. While the musical quotient on GLEE is always appreciably entertaining - with few exceptions - this season has been significantly more expansive and varied in its storytelling style, so the question of the season undoubtedly is: was it all wrapped up satisfactorily? Well, we'll just have to stack it all up side-by-side-by-side-by-side and see, now, won't we? But, one thing is crystal clear: GLEE in NYC was all it was cracked up - and built up - to be. The big pay-off. Finally. Or, make that more to the point: finale. (more...)

by Michael L. Quintos - May 20, 2011

Using almost all of the same cast and elements from their initial 2010 production of the Elvis musical ALL SHOOK UP (at its former home in the OC Pavilion in Santa Ana), the Orange County-based 3D Theatricals is once again mounting a newer, more rousingly-amplified revival in their new home at the Plummer Auditorium in Fullerton through May 29, 2011.

EXCLUSIVE WORLD PREMIERE AUDIO: Lea Michele & Chris Colfer Sing GLEE Season Finale - WICKED's 'For Good'EXCLUSIVE WORLD PREMIERE AUDIO: Lea Michele & Chris Colfer Sing GLEE Season Finale - WICKED's 'For Good'
by Pat Cerasaro - May 19, 2011

Click below for the WORLD PREMIERE of the performance of 'For Good' from WICKED by Stephen Schwartz, as performed by Lea Michele and Chris Colfer in the Season Two finale of Fox's GLEE, premiering Tuesday at 8 PM. On the stage of the Gershwin Theater where WICKED plays eight times a week, Rachel and Kurt form a diva mutual-appreciation-society befitting of Elphaba and G(a)linda and share their affection and love for each other as performers - as well as people. Of special note to Broadway babies: both of the original Broadway witches in WICKED who first sang 'For Good' have made memorable appearances on GLEE in the last two seasons, with Idina Menzel essaying the role of Rachel Berry's mother, Shelby, and Kristin Chenoweth winning over fans with her award-nominated stint as boozy April Rhodes. Continuing what was begun with Michele and Colfer‘s dueling versions of 'Defying Gravity' last season, WICKED's unforgettable Act One Finale, here is the end of Act Two - 'For Good'; as is oh-so befitting of the close of Season Two of GLEE.
