Patti LuPone, Broadway legend to guest star on 'Glee'
Patti LuPone, the famed Broadway actress who won a Tony for her role as "Evita," will guest star on the season finale of "Glee," reports Playbill.
"On set right now working with one of my all time idols," Lea Michele Tweeted on April 28. "Another day where 'Glee' makes one of my dreams come true."
The cast of "Glee" has been filming in New York this week, visiting landmarks like Tiffany's and Times Square. During the finale, New Directions are in Manhattan for Nationals, where they'll compete for the ultimate trophy.
Most reports say that Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) will run into LuPone at Sardi's, a midtown restaurant, but Entertainment Weekly claims that it will be Rachel and Finn (Cory Monteith) who meet the Broadway legend.
LuPone recently won another Tony Award for her performance at Rose in the revival of "Gypsy." She's also taken Olivier Awards for her performances in "Les Misérables" and "The Cradle Will Rock."
The theater legend has previously guest-starred on shows like "30 Rock," "Ugly Betty," "Will & Grace," "Frasier," "Life Goes On" and "Law & Order."
LuPone was in the first class to graduate from the Drama Division of New York's Juilliard School. She was also a founding member of John Houseman's The Acting Company.
The "Glee" season finale is scheduled to air on Monday, May 24 at 9 p.m. ET on Fox.
