Ever wonder why we haven’t seen much of Spanish teacher David Martinez (Ricky Martin) on Glee... especially since he got hired as a full-time McKinley teacher at the end of Season 3, Episode 12?

Because, honestly, between the awesomeness that was Ricky’s version of “Sexy and I Know It,” and the sultry perfection of his “La Isla Bonita” duet with Santana (Naya Rivera), we’re just dying to get Ricky back on Glee. What’s been keeping him away?

The answer is simple enough: Ricky is keeping pretty busy — and on the other side of the country, no less! The Latin music superstar is currently “Livin’ La Vida Loca” (you know, livin’ the crazy life) on Broadway — playing the role of narrator Che in the Broadway revival of “EVITA.”

Since he and Lea Michele (Rachel) are such good pals from back in the day on Broadway, the Glee star definitely made a point to come see the show while she was in town.

The evening before she jetted off to London for the Glamour UK awards, Lea tweeted, “Last night in New York City.. So I must see another broadway show:) very excited about this one...”

Just hours later, she followed up. “Had the most amazing time seeing EVITA tonight and getting to see my dear friend @ricky_martin kill it on stage! He & the show were amazing!”

That same night, Ricky tweeted a photo of the pair. “With my beautiful friend @msleamichele! I'm glad u liked #Evita‬ Now go and enjoy ur vacations! U deserve them baby! :0)”

Wait a second: vacations? So she’s headed somewhere after London? We can’t wait to see where Lea pops up next!
