Lea Michele’s First Look: Rachel Prepares For Big Broadway Audition!
The time has come to prepare your body for the audition of a lifetime. No, Chord Overstreet (Sam) isn't giving up Glee and starting a career as a professional underwear model. Sigh, we wish — minus the quitting Glee part.
Our girl Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) is gearing up for her Funny Girl audition! Yep, Glee's resident diva is getting her Barbra Streisand on in Episode 19, and we couldn't be more excited.
Lea Michele is currently filming scenes for Rachel's upcoming audition, and it looks like she's taking the performance super seriously. Check out this picture of Rach all decked out in Babs' classic Funny Girl leopard print coat, and then feast your eyes on Rachel voguing in true Streisand fashion. She's a pro!
Considering that Rachel's mom, Shelby Corcoran (played by Broadway superstar Idina Menzel) is coaching her for the audition, we have a feeling this is going to be a grand slam. After all, who wouldn't hire Rachel and her amazing vocals to star in Funny Girl? She was born to play the part!
Although, there is the tricky problem of Rachel's bun in the oven. Last time we checked, Barbra Streisand wasn't pregnant for the majority of Funny Girl, so we're not sure how Glee will swing Lea's baby bump... Theories? Dish 'em in the comments!
