Glee's Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) moved to New York City to follow her dreams, and it looks like girlfriend is this close to landing a part on Broadway! This Queen B wants nothing more than to star in Funny Girl, and we're thinking her ambitious career move could have something to do with this season's epic cliffhanger....

"I loved going back and forth, and I think we'll always have one foot in both [NYC and McKinley High], but I would like a big chunk to follow one particular story that we're getting ready to launch at the end of this year," Ryan Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter at the PaleyFest Icon Awards, adding that the story will involve Rachel. "It's going to be a big cliffhanger."

Hmmm, a cliffhanger involving Rachel? Considering that this lovely lady might be pregnant, we're thinking the cliffhanger has something to do with how the bun in her oven will affect her career. "The only thing I can guess is whether or not Rachel is going to get cast in Funny Girl," Lea tells The Hollywood Reporter. "I think that's going to be the cliffhanger: Does she get it or does she not get it?"

Lea claims she doesn't know what Ryan has up his sleeve, but she's rooting for Rachel. "I hope she gets it because in my eyes, I'd love to see her in a show next year in that world of rehearsals, a cast, is she the lead or understudy?" she continues. "That was my world and I'd love to get to play that story line out next year but I don't know whether or not it's going to happen. If I could hope for a potential cliffhanger, that's what I would hope for and that she would get the Funny Girl role and that would be the story line for Rachel next year."

Do you agree with Lea? There's no doubt that Rachel would be amazing on Broadway, but there's that tricky problem of her unplanned pregnancy...
