Time To Stop Believin’: “Glee” The Musical Is Coming To Broadway

gleeIt was only a matter of time before the students of McKinley High butchered Broadway tunes while actually on Broadway.

Despite the unanimously negative industry response when Glee was first announced, according to 20th Century Fox Television co-head Gary Newman,  there’s no question that Ryan Murphy’s musical comedy-drama has become an “international powerhouse.”

Newman pre-announced the plans for a stage musical during a shareholders presentation. “We launched a live stage business with a sold-out arena concert tour in 2011, and now a live stage musical is in the works,” Newman said.

Rumors of a stage adaptation have been floating around for a while; in 2010, Broadway.com reported Glee’s co-creator Ryan Murphy’s threats that a live stage version was “definitely” happening.

So far, no details about the production have emerged so we don’t know if Broadway vets Lea Michele, Darren Criss and Matthew Morrison will make appearances, or which members of the cast who definitely aren’t going to have careers after the show ends will begrudgingly take the stage.
