Watch Out McKinley High School...

Chris and I were extremely excited to watch the students of McKinley High School (aka - GLEE) this past week. The show is a one-hour musical comedy that follows an optimistic high school teacher (our favorite - Matthew Morrison) as he tries to transform the Glee Club and inspire a group of ragtag performers to make it to the biggest competition of all: Nationals.

We were in H E A V E N.

Not only because we were riding the American Idol high, but because we were reunited with Lea Michele (who does an amazing job as the perfectionist firecracker Rachel... who happens to have two gay dads). Lea also starred in "Spring Awakenings", one of our all-time favorite Broadway musicals that won numerous Tony awards in 2007.

In the video below of the Tony awards, you can see that during the production, Spring Awakenings has some of their cast mixed in with audience members that sit on the stage. After seeing the show for the first time and totally falling in love with it, I purchased Chris a seat on the stage. So, in a sense, he was able to share the stage with Lea (they are now they are BFF's). We were able to get our program signed by the entire cast and it's hanging in the game room (next to the new fuse-ball table that matches the pool table perfectly! Ya'll are invited to come over and play anytime. Just call first so I can have a fresh batch of cookies waiting for you :)
Now, I'm off to find a way to get Chris on Glee. Maybe I can get him a role as the janitor or as one of the cafeteria ladies. I can't wait to see him in a hair net [he's going to kill me for posting this!]
