Lea Michele

Lea Michele
The former Broadway star (Spring Awakening, Les Miserables), who went on to international fame via the Fox juggernaut "Glee," proves week after week on that hit series her ability to sing in a multitude of styles, and the program has also given the young actress the chance to develop her dramatic and comedic chops. She also belted out Funny Girl's "Don't Rain on My Parade" on the Tony Awards. With her huge TV fan base, it might be the perfect time for Michele to return to Broadway.
