Glee @ Dodge Theatre

So I am posting this pretty late... the show was actually back on the 15th of May... really I'm only posting them at the behest of my younger sister. So here you go Emily...

There isn't too much I can comment on about the actual live performance. I have never seen an episode of the show, and therefore don't know any of the back story. However, it's nice to see Jane Lynch have a chance to shine after years of semi-obscurity. I knew her from the Christopher Guest movies (Some of my favorites), so good on her.

As for the rest of the cast... on stage they were pretty together. I suppose you have to hand it to them, being a pile of actors... singing and dancing on stage in character. The songs they sang were all covers of 70's and 80's tunes. Probably some new things thrown in as well, but as is the case with most shows, I was only allowed to shoot the first 3 songs. And even that was cut short.

One semi funny thing that happened was before the show started, a bunch of kids dressed like cheerleaders walked through the crowd handing out "barf bags"... which was later commented on by Jane Lynch's character via pre-recorded video as a necessity, since the show would surely make us vomit. I tried to grab one for you Em, to no avail. No special privileges.
