FOX Confirms Live-Stage ‘Glee’ Musical is in the Works

by: on | in Entertainment News | 5 Comments

FOXAfter the shocking and tragic passing of Cory Monteith, fans of Glee have been left to ponder the fate of the show. But it seems that FOX still has full confidence in the series' success. So much so, that a live-stage production of it is in the pipeline.

At 21st Century Fox's first Investor Day, one of the heads of the company, Gary Newman, praised Glee creator Ryan Murphy, calling his dramedy an "international powerhouse."

He then continued to list the ways in which the show has flourished, and will continue to flourish over the next few years: "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." See! He adds, "Two more seasons of the show were ordered by FOX. When you identify the right creator and support a big, creative vision, you get a show like Glee, which is exactly the kind of property that our studio excels at exploiting."

So far, no further details have been given as to who will play each of the characters or where this would even take place. If a live-stage musical of the FOX series premiered near you, would you see it? Tell us your honest thoughts in the comments below, or on our Glee message board!

Psst, we spent an entire day with Glee's Blake Jenner!

    I watch this show religiously, when i learned about Cory’s death i has heartbroken and numb with pain like Lea Michele was. My family let me grieve for awhile like Lea has, Even though i didn’t know him personally like Lea and the Glee Cast and Crew i felt a connection with him. the reason why i felt this connection was My first Name is Corrie and not many people have the name Cory, you hear the names David, Alison and Micheal. Also i never realized he had a hidden drug struggle until two years ago. After reading this i feel better knowing that Ryan Murphy & the creators are using his death with a positive outlook.

    I think that the show is trying to take positive furs after Cory’s passing. I think that’s great and naturally that would the next step after the show. Looking forward to see what they do with the idea.
