Don't Stop Believin': Glee Live On Stage @Gibson Ampitheatre
Were you one of the thousands of Gleeks who caught one of the live performances by the cast this week at the Gibson Ampitheatre? Or did you have to live vicariously through the friends who were?

Singing and dancing to the numbers that captivated millions on the hit Fox show about a group of Ohio high schoolers who discover themselves through the joy of performing in show choir, the younger stars of the show took to the stage in Universal City and, from what we hear, rocked the house.
Says the LA Times of the show, "television's ugly ducklings have become real-world swans, and Thursday's 70-minute performance had the triumphant, sometimes self-satisfied feel of a victory lap." The show used video clips of absent cast members like Matthew Morrison and Jane Lynch as narrative thread, while the McKinley High kids sang backed by a band and "what sounded like several prerecorded backing tracks." Of the music, the Times review observed they
obeyed no genre rules, mixing 1980s arena rock ("Don't Stop Believin' " and "Any Way You Want It," both by Journey), show tunes ("Defying Gravity," from "Wicked"), recent Top 40 pop ( Kelly Clarkson's "My Life Would Suck Without You," Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance") and the odd bit of old-school vocal jazz ("The Lady Is a Tramp").
