Glee still in tune af­ter pay­ing tribute to de­parted cast­mate

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

GLEE star Lea Michele has tweeted this mes­sage to her 3 mil­lion plus Twit­ter fans. ‘‘Rise and shine,’’ it says. The mes­sage that fol­lows is a quote: ‘‘No Mat­ter How You Feel Get Up. Dress Up. Show Up. And Never Give Up.’’ The mes­sage does not name her late boyfriend Cory Mon­teith but in­sid­ers spec­u­late it is Michele’s tribute to the young star who died on July 13 and was re­mem­bered at the re­cent Emmy awards. The choice was a con­tro­ver­sial one. Co-star Jane Lynch said later: ‘‘I was hon­oured to be the one that they asked to re­mem­ber Cory to the rest of the coun­try. There’s a whole gen­er­a­tion of kids whose lives have been en­riched, and I’m re­ally grate­ful to our show for that, and Finn Hud­son and his open­heart­ed­ness and in­clu­sive­ness is a big rea­son why kids love our show so much, and he’s gone.’’ Mon­teith is the sub­ject of an episode ti­tled Quar­ter­back in a new sea­son of Glee which de­buts to­mor­row night. Cast and crew have been tight-lipped about de­tails of the episode for which sev­eral end­ings were filmed. New­com­ers in­clude Demi Lo­vato as Dani, a love in­ter­est for San­tana and Adam Lam­bert as Kurt’s neme­sis. The fifth sea­son de­buts with New Di­rec­tions tak­ing on their big­gest as­sign­ment yet: the Bea­tles, in a two-part tribute to the band.
