Something that I hate about some musicals is that I find myself wanting the book to hurry up and get back to the numbers because the musical numbers are so much better and interesting. (I hate it even more when I find myself wanting the musical numbers to hurry up and get back to the book.)
GLEE has become like a musical where I want the spoken part to hurry up so it can get to the musical numbers.
Granted, I thought that last night’s story line was cute with it’s incorporation of “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It).” But I still had this nagging want for the show to get to the song and dance numbers.
And would it really be too much to ask for Jane Lynch’s character and Rachel Barry (Lea Michelle) to have depth? Because the lack of depth in those characters is driving me nuts.
