Born This Way

WAIT... WHEN DID KURT GET HOT? So I was having breakfast today with an old friend and we got on the subject of last week's episode of GLEE entitled Born This Way. She had not been watching in a while but told me how impressed she was with the show. Then we both said at the same time "Didn't Kurt Look HOT!" We started to laugh but we were serious. Not only was he amazing in the episode, blew me away with As If We Never Said Goodbye, but he looked better than ever. That boyish and adorable Chris Colfer has really changed over night into a handsome young man. Check out the photo below that Chris himself retweeted on his twitter account; you can really see how he has bloomed over the last three years: For starters he taller now, growing 4 inches in height between season one and season two. He has said in interviews that he has lost around 40 pounds in weight since high school. And I swear that young man has him some muscles now. Don't believe me, just check out his arms during the Born This Way performance (amazing). Lastly his hair has been fantastic this season! He can really pull off the big poofy hairstyle (so chic). A+ Chris you are a gem and don't ever change! Let me even say that you are quicky becoming every girl's and boy's teenage dream.

As If We Never Said Goodbye

GLEE-CAP: So today a fellow GLEEK & co-worker walked into my office at work to make a confession... she no longer was a GLEEK (WHAT!). I was shocked and could not believe that she had lost faith in the show. She explained that she upset at the lack of story from last week's episode and was over some of the characters. I tried to tell her that tonight episode was gonna be AMAZING and win. her back but then she handed over her GLEEK merch (magnets, buttons, etc). Though I was sad to hear she no longer was a fan I was over joyed to inherit her GLEE merch. The rest of the day I could not shake what my co-worker said. I went over to the Gannons to watch GLEE like I do so often and sat down hoping she was wrong. And she was!
This episode reminded me why I love GLEE that it is a show about people like me. Born This Way might come in top 5 episodes of GLEE all time. GLEE has always been a story about the underdog from day one and tonight really came back to these core theme of the show. Born This Way was the perfect anthem for GLEE because is about letting your unique features shine and stand out instead of hiding them.
The stand out star was Chris Colfer who plays Kurt. Kurt made his big return to McKinley High and boy did he come back with the best song he has done on the series to this date! He sang As If We Never Said Goodbye from the Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical Sunset Blvd. I give big props to the writers of the show (Ian, Ryan, Brad) and GLEE's musical director Adam Anders for picking a song with lyrics that perfectly illustrated the emotions of Kurt returning home. I cried my eyes out watching him own that song in his performance. Also how great was it to see the Warblers and Blaine sing Kurt off with their rendition of Somewhere Only We Know. Blaine looked as if he wanted to cry out "DON'T GO" but he held it together for Kurt's sake. I can not wait to see their relationship grow and see the romance bloom! TOO CUTE

Another highlight of the night was the Barbra Streisand flash-mob to SAVE Rachel's noise. I am not gonna lie that song might end up being my new ringtone! I think Lea Michelle is a true beauty and to see her and Dianna Agron sing I Feel Pretty/Unpretty was such a powerful message to young girls everywhere. Overall 5 stars to this episode, I could watch it over and over again!

So what's next for GLEE: The cast and crew are currently filming in NYC, check out this fan video of some scenes at famous NY landmarks!

Hey Pushing Daisies fans hurry to NYC's Golden Theatre where Lee Pace is currently in the Broadway production of THE NORMAL HEART. Pace won critical acclaimed for his staring role in the Off-Broadway play, The Credeaux Canvas, directed by Michael Mayer.

Of Course Benjamin Isn't A Savage...Yes He Is

If you are in the Los Angeles area, I would highly suggest that you make plans to attend the Opening Night Standby Line for God of Carnage next Wednesday, April 13th. The performance is at 8pm at the Ahmanson Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles and trust me when I say this an all-star production you do not want to miss! To participate in the standby line for God of Carnage, plan to arrive at the Ahmanson Theatre two hour before show time and join the line to the left of the box office (line gets long so the ealier you get there the better chance you have to get in). The Ahmanson is located at the Music Center at 135 N Grand Avenue. Tickets become available due to cancellations and no-shows (FOR FREE). Seating is not guaranteed, but chances are very good; I have done the line many times and have always gotten in. Remember it is opening night so dress up (there is a dress code). Go to the for more info!
