Lea Michele and Chris Colfer Get Quizzed on Broadway Knowledge: Who Came Out on Top? (VIDEO)
What do you get when you take two Broadway babies, add in a dash of competitive trivia and have Darren Criss (Darren Criss) on hand to emcee the whole thing? We don’t blame you if you’re confused, but the answer to our epic question is the entire video below. In the clip Chris Colfer (Kurt) and Lea Michele (Rachel) are separately quizzed on their Broadway knowledge by Mr. Criss, and we’d be lying if we said the resulting video was anything short of spectacular.
Sure, the questions aren’t exactly head-scratchers (Lea even laments the lack of difficulty) but just having Chris, Lea, and Darren in one video is good enough for us, nevermind that it’s Broadway Baby Brain Busters. First off, Darren introduces us to Lea as his “wickedly talented” co-star, a nod to John Travolta’s Idina Menzel Oscar flub last month. By this point we’re already hooked.
Both Lea and Chris breeze through the early questions, but Ms. Michele gets stumped when she’s asked to identify a famous musical quote. We won’t spoil it for you up here, but we admit that the quote is a bit tricky to place without context. Luckily Darren helps her out and she gets it right away.
As an added bonus, there’s also some Glee/B’way trivia thrown in, which makes sense since this clip is meant to tease Tuesday night’s episode of Glee, “Bash”, which will feature several classic show tunes like “Broadway Baby” from Follies and “No One Is Alone” from Into the Woods.
