Glee UK tour and movie ruled out by producer and star


Story by Jack Foley

A UK stage tour of hit TV musical Glee has been ruled out for the time being by the show’s producer, while alleged plans for a movie have also been described as untrue by one of its stars.

Speaking to Music Week, series producer Dante Di Loreto said that while a UK tour would be considered in the future, there were no plans at present as the focus is currently on the second series of the Golden Globe winning sensation.

The cast played seven US dates earlier this year, thereby raising anticipation that they might come to Europe and the UK. But Loreto maintained that the priority has to be on the forthcoming new season.

“We would like to do shows in the UK and Ireland but it is a question of when we could do it. We need to make more of the TV show… that comes first,” he said.

“We had a terrific time with the live concert and I’m sure we would like to do more of that,” he added. “The problem is finding the time to do it.”

Turning to reports of a Glee movie, these were refused by the show’s star, Matthew Morrison, aka teacher Will Schuester, on the BBC Breakfast programme.

“I feel like I’m in high school, there are so many rumours surrounding the show,” he said.

He did, however, confirm that two more series have been commissioned and that he believed the reason for Glee‘s success was because there is “something in the show for everyone”.
