“Glee” tour show is a hit with critics

Hollywoodnews.com: The “Glee” stage show which recently concluded a four-city tour with a weekend at Radio City Music Hall in New York City has been hitting a high note with critics.

Many of the show’s cast are present on stage, i.e. Lea Michelle and Cory Monteith, belting out covers seen over the last season. For example, Kevin McHale, who plays the handicapped Arty sings “Dancing With Myself” as well as the harmonious Journey track from the pilot, “Don’t Stop Believen.”

Richard Zoglin from Time, who is non-Gleek, exclaims:

In fact, Glee may actually play better onstage than it does on TV. For one thing, there’s none of the haphazard editing that too often wreaks havoc with the musical numbers on the home screen. For another, the super-amplified sound system muddies the voices just enough that almost everyone sounds at least passable, and in some cases (like Michele’s) pretty terrific.

The New York Daily News, exclaimed:

For fans who fretted that the kids might not sound as sonorous – or seem as chipper – live as they do on a Hollywood sound stage, Friday night’s best stars blew that suspicion out of the water….The greatest gift of ‘Glee’ may be its near-perfect nexus of Broadway and pop values.

The “Glee” tour which played 11 dates, packs 21 songs in 80 minutes. Time points out that the $20 souvenir program doesn’t reveal who directed the “Glee” tour show.

“Whoever it was,” says Zoglin, “good job.”
