Season 5, Episode 17: “Special Guests” Support Rachel on Funny Girl’s Opening Night — Who Are They?
Rachel (Lea Michele)'s big opening night for Funny Girl is fast-approaching on Glee. And as you might expect, more than a few familiar faces will be stopping by to cheer on her Great White Way debut.
Fox has released its official synopsis for the upcoming Season 5, Episode 17: "Opening Night." Here's what we have to look forward to:
The night has finally arrived for Rachel's (Lea Michele) Broadway debut in "Funny Girl," and she has very special guests in town to support her career-defining moment in the all-new "Opening Night" episode of GLEE airing Tuesday, April 22 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
So who exactly are these so-called "special guests" who will be visiting Rachel? Well, we can see from the episode's cast list that Mr. Schue, Sue, and Becky will all be visiting from Ohio. In addition, Santana will be back for the episode, so it will be interesting to see whether she attends the show, given that she dropped out as the understudy.
We're hoping that the big night goes smoothly for Rachel! However, given that the following episode is called "The Back-Up Plan," we're starting to have our doubts.
Are you excited to see the Lima characters in NYC for opening night?
