In the process of putting together the musical at McKinley High School, auditions have started; in the last "Glee" episode, Darren Criss, who plays Blaine Anderson, sang Tony's first solo song in West Side, "Something's Coming." Also, Lea Michele, who plays Rachel Berry, and Idina Menzel, who plays her biological mother, teamed up for a duet of "Somewhere."

Matthew Morrison, who plays glee club director Will Schuester, admits that he wishes he were a student so he could partake in the West Side fun. Also, Chris Colfer shares his experiences with West Side Story, and Criss talks about taking on his first solo number, without the Warblers there as his backup singers.
