Glee To become Live Stage Musical


Hit television show Glee is set to be adapted for the theater as a new stage musical.

The popular musical comedy series, which stars Lea Michele, Jane Lynch and the late Cory Monteith, has already proved its success on the stage with the cast embarking on a special Glee Live! In Concert! arena tour in 2010 and 2011, but now show producers are working on turning it into a real musical theatre spectacular.

Fox network executive Gary Newman let the news slip last week during 21st Century Fox’s Investor Day event, where he told the audience, “We launched a live stage business with a sold-out arena concert tour in 2011, and now a live stage musical is in the works. And two more seasons of the show were ordered by Fox.”

The fifth season of the show is due to return on television in September.

Patti Smith’s "Live At Montreux 2005" On DVD and Blu-ray November 13

On November 13, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release Live At Montreux 2005 by Patti Smith on DVD, Blu-ray, and Digital Video [Pre-book Order Date October 19, MSRP $14.98 for DVD, $19.98 for Blu-ray, and $12.99 Digital Video].

Smith’s vibrant live performance – a fervent intermingle of visual artistry, musical exploration, spoken word, and Rock ‘N’ Roll – is beautifully captured on Live At Montreux 2005 via DTS Surround Sound, Dolby Digital 5.1, and Dolby Digital Stereo. This Montreux concert was filmed in the midst of their 2005 tour in support of the 2004 albumTrampin’. This is the first ever live video release by Patti Smith and includes classic tracks such as “Because The Night,” “Dancing Barefoot,” “People Have The Power,” “Redondo Beach,” “25th Floor,” and many more. In addition, they also serenade the legacy of Bob Dylan, with a performance of “Like A Rolling Stone.”

Along with Patti Smith on vocals, guitar and clarinet, the band line-up includes original Patti Smith Groupmembers Lenny Kaye (guitar & vocals) and Jay Dee Daugherty (drums), Tom Verlaine of Television on guitars and long standing band member Tony Shanahan on bass, keyboards and vocals.

“There’s something magical about seeing Montreux on our tour itinerary,” says Lenny Kaye. “Along with a sense of achievement in becoming part of its grand tradition, there’s an awareness of the many Those who have played here over the years, the tribute that must be paid, the higher level of artistic exploration and audience sophistication that enhances the possibilities for taking a performance one step further. We partake of a sense of communal belonging within the mandala that is human musical expression.”

Patti Smith was one of the key artists in the breakthrough of New York City punk rock. The 1975 debut albumHorses was a landmark release, from her unique vocals and lyrics, to the strikingly androgynous cover art, shot by photographer Robert Mapplethorpe (Patti dons this exact outfit in the 2005 concert). Horses was a huge influence on the whole New Wave genre, and paved the way for 11 additional albums, as well as several published poetry collections.

Smith’s distinctive blend of rock, punk and poetry combined with her uncompromising style has ensured that she has remained a credible artist throughout her career, and continues to influence artists to this day.
