GLEE LIVE! IN CONCERT!” A SUMMER 2011 THEATRICAL MOVIE EVENT IN 3D

GLEE LIVE! 3D!, THE THEATRICAL FILM BASED ON THE HIT TV SHOW’S SMASH CONCERT TOUR, HITS THEATERS AUGUST 12TH, 2011

“Glee” creator Ryan Murphy will produce and Kevin Tancharoen (“Fame”) will direct

LOS ANGELES (May 4, 2011) — Twentieth Century Fox Television and Twentieth Century Fox Film have partnered with GLEE creator Ryan Murphy to produce GLEE LIVE! 3D!, a film of the blockbuster “Glee Live! In Concert!” North American tour. Twentieth Century Fox will release the film – for a special limited two-week engagement — in theaters everywhere on August 12, 2011.

GLEE LIVE! 3D! will enable fans – or, “Gleeks” — who were unable to obtain tickets to the sold-out shows, or who live in markets not included in the tour, or who just want to see it again, to experience the concert in the immersive magic of a 3D theatrical event.

Starring 14 members of the Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning television show’s cast and shot live during the summer concerts, the movie will capture the unique concert experience along with special moments involving the characters themselves.

“This tour was all about going out and performing for our amazing fans who have supported our show from the beginning, but due to the limited time we had to travel during our hiatus, there were only so many cities we could get to before we had to resume work on the television series,” commented Murphy. “We knew that not every fan who wanted to attend a concert would get that opportunity. Now, thanks to our friends at Twentieth Century Fox Film, we’ll be able to bring the concert experience to movie theaters across the country in full three dimensional glory. We promise every passionate ‘Gleek’ a cinematic experience that will have them singing and dancing in the aisles.”

Kevin Tancharoen (“Fame,” “Mortal Kombat: Legacy” series) will direct the film.

GLEE LIVE! 3D! will include live performances of some of the show’s most memorable musical numbers, including “I’m a Slave 4 U,” “Raise Your Glass,” “Teenage Dream,” and “Lucky,” as well as the original songs that became chart-toppers such as “Loser Like Me,” “Hell to the No!” and “Get it Right,” and of course, the show’s anthem, “Don’t Stop Believin’.” The first “Glee” concert tour in 2010 was described by the Los Angeles Times as “triumphant,” while USA Today called the concerts “equal parts musical theater, giddy pop culture phenomenon and Journey-loving rock show.”

Tickets for “Glee Live! In Concert!” went on sale in February and are nearly sold out in all scheduled venues, prompting the studio to add additional shows for which limited tickets are still available. The concert series begins May 21 in Las Vegas with “Glee” stars Lea Michele (Rachel), Cory Monteith (Finn), Amber Riley (Mercedes), Chris Colfer (Kurt), Kevin McHale (Artie), Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina), Mark Salling (Puck), Dianna Agron (Quinn), Naya Rivera (Santana), Heather Morris (Brittany), Harry Shum, Jr. (Mike), Chord Overstreet (Sam), Darren Criss (Blaine), Ashley Fink (Lauren) and members of “The Warblers” performing an all-new singing and dancing celebration of the Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning show.

The concert tour wraps up June 18 in Uniondale, New York, before moving on to the United Kingdom. For more information, please visit “Glee” at http://www.gleetour.com.

Now in its sophomore season, GLEE – which airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on FOX — is a biting musical comedy about a group of eager and ambitious students who strive to outshine their singing competition to win Nationals while navigating the cruel halls of McKinley High that has quickly become a pop-culture phenomenon. This season’s No. 1 scripted hour among Adults 18-49, Adults 18-34 and Teens boasts critical acclaim, a loyal fan base of “GLEEks,” two Platinum and two Gold albums, more than 29 million song downloads, the record for the most titles on the Billboard Hot 100 by a non-solo act (beating out Elvis Presley, James Brown and The Beatles), an incredible 19 Emmy nominations – earning it the distinction of being the most-nominated series of the year – and four Emmy Awards. To top it off, the genre-defying, award-winning series has been picked up through its third season. GLEE is produced by Ryan Murphy Television in association with 20th Century Fox Television. Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan are co-creators of the series. Murphy, Falchuk, Brennan and Dante Di Loreto serve as executive producers.

  • It's NOT ALL About You John Michael

    CHICAGO – John Michael epitomizes the art of the monologue. The Chicago transplant, by way of Dallas, is moving on (he says temporarily) from the city that inspired his last show, “Meatball Seance,” after notorious and successful runs of his other one-man shows, “John Michael and the Order of the Penix” and “Dementia Me.” His farewell performance is his latest, another laugh riot, “It’s NOT ALL About You John Michael,” and will take place at Mary’s Attic in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood on March 1st, 2019. Click here for details, including ticket information.

  • Soccer Player in the Closet, The 2

    CHICAGO – Connecting to the theater collective Nothing Without a Company means a couple of things. One, you may visit parts of Chicago you’ve never seen before – in this case a plant store in an industrial area south of Humboldt Park – and two, you will see some daring and outside-the-box stagings. “The Soccer Player in the Closet” is their latest production – a World Premiere – and it provides what the title implies and beyond. The play runs through March 17th, 2019. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
