Don't Stop Believing

I guess this song is now a showtune considering it's in Rock of Ages and now featured in the TV show Glee.

I saw the pilot of Glee a few months back and watched the director's cut tonight. From the press notes "It's a new comedy for the aspiring underdog in all of us." It's one of the more exciting tv shows this fall season. The creative team seems to get the essence of what it is to be a theatre geek or a choir kid. It's a very promising show. But I am most glad that they got actors who CAN really sing instead of "known" stars. Lea Michele (Spring Awakening), Matthew Morrison (Hairspray, South Pacific), Corey Monteith and Amber Riley are standouts. Hurray for bringing musicals back on primetime!
