During an Investor Day with shareholders, Newman reportedly told them: “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”. The news comes shortly after the announcement that there will be a season five and six of Glee still to come, despite the recent loss of lead cast member Cory Monteith.
No further information has been revealed so it is unknown whether any of the cast themselves will appear in the stage adaptation. Lea Michele, Matthew Morrison, Jane Lynch, and Darren Criss, have all appeared on a Broadway stage before, but there’s no telling how involved they will be with this project.
Meanwhile, Lea Michele made a moving tribute to her on and off screen boyfriend, Cory Monteith, after winning a Teen Choice Award for Choice TV Actress in a Comedy. Michele thanked her fans for all their support during a difficult few weeks, and dedicated the award to Cory.
