Drama geeks give a cheer: 'Glee' could be adapted into a stage musical
"Glee" as theatre -- it could happen!
Licensing company Music Theatre International is in talks with the creators and producers of "Glee" to turn the hit Fox show into a musical for the stage.
Nothing is definite, but word is that the project is in the early stages of development. According to Variety, there is no indication whether the show would be aimed at amateur -- high school, included -- or professional troupes.
Some "Glee" fans-slash-budding thespians already had their shot at singing and dancing in the show itself, which in February held a nationwide open casting call for three new roles. The process was filmed and will be turned into a reality show that will air leading up to "Glee's" Season 2 premiere this fall.The "Glee" cast will hit the stage for a live concert tour hitting the road in May. It includes stops in Los Angeles, Phoenix, Chicago and New York.
