Happy Glee Day

Today is the season premiere of Glee!  I'm so excited! 

Last time I wrote about Glee I talked about some of the many things I loved about Glee.  Today, in honor of the premiere of season two I thought it would be fun to talk about some of my favorite musical guest stars from season one.  Season one was a musical theater nerd's dream come true.  Some of my favorite people were on the show.

I first learned about Kristin when she was in the revival of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown.  She played Sally Brown and she was magnificent!  Some of her other more famous roles have been Glinda in Wicked and most recently Promises, Promises.

I have been a fan of Idina Menzel since her Rent days.  Her voice in Wicked gives me chills.  I don't even have words to describe her talent.  She is amazing!

Oh, Neil.  What do I say about Neil?  He can do no wrong.  We have all known him for years.  He has worked in musical theater on broadway, but one of my favorite Neil projects is (of course) Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog!  Did you know that he directed Rent recently, too?  Makes me love him even more!

I know Jonathan Groff from Spring Awakening.  I love that show!  It was so original and the original cast was such a talented group!  He worked with Lea Michele in that show.  He also worked with one of my favorites, John Gallagher, Jr.!


Okay, I know he's not a musical theater guy and he's not technically a guest star.  He's more like a regular cast member.  But Mike O'Malley deserves a moment for being so great on this show.  His scenes with Kurt are some of the best parts of the series. 

I think I'm ready for the show now!  :-)

Have a very happy Glee Day!!!
