A Very Special 'Glee' Moment: 'At the Ballet'

when 'glee' gets it right, which is often, it gets it so right. i've often sung, pun intended, the praise of naya rivera. well here i go again. now that musicals are back in 'vogue' perhaps it is time to remake 'a chorus line' to erase that abortion that was filmed in 1985 by director richard attenborough who had not a single clue how to make a musical.
and yes naya would make the perfect sheila. she has enough warmth and the talent to make this bitter, frustrated, sarcastic and yet funny and so talented character come to life.

'Don't Stop Believing' Rachel and Lea

so last week on 'glee' rachel barry auditioned for a revival of 'funny girl'. a part rachel, and her alter ego lea michelle, was born to play. instead of 'doing' barbra rachel choose to go back and find the song that brought her and her friends together as 'glee'. impressive move/writing. 'doing' barbra would have been appropriate but not daring. lea's rachel went bold. it was impressive. and it was all about her herself and her talent.

so once again from the soundtrack of my life
'don't stop believing' rachel's audition

behind the scenes

and finally then let's revisit rachel/lea doing a barbra 'funny girl' song. and yes with a good director lea should play fanny brice. she needs that good director to help her make fanny her own and not an impersonation. the girl has the talent and it should be utilized. i long to see her do it. i believe in her talent although i was weary at the start of the series. she has grown and  matured into a performer to be reckoned with. brava!
