Scoop: 'Glee' courting Idina Menzel!

Posted on

Brace yourselves, theatre buffs! Following in the footsteps of Kristin Chenoweth and Jonathan Groff, Tony winner Idina Menzel is in advanced talks to join the cast of Glee!

But — and yes, there is a but — she won’t be playing Rachel’s mother, as we all assumed. If the deal goes through, she’ll be playing the choir director for New Directions’ rivals, Vocal Adrenaline.

So how psyched are you? And how hard are you suddenly hoping that Chenoweth will return as April in an episode that would allow her to team up once again with her former Wicked castmate? Let the cheering commence below.
