Broadway Director Persuades Lea Michele to Return to Stage


Lea Michele


Executive director Reed Prescott admits he is keen to lure Lea Michele to return to Broadway, claiming that he has penned a special role for her.

Actress Lea Michele could be set to return to her stage roots - a top Broadway director has penned a role especially for the "Glee" star. The 23-year-old began her career in New York shows, but shot to fame in 2009 after debuting as wannabe actress Rachel Berry in the popular TV musical comedy.

But Broadway bosses are keen to lure Michele back - with a part written specifically for her in new musical Speargrove Presents, which tells the story of a Texas high school's fight to stage a production of risque musical Rent.

Executive director Reed Prescott tells New York Post's gossip column PageSix, "We've crafted the lead with Lea in mind. As a veteran Broadway trouper, she can relate to her character's frustration over the show, in this case Rent, not going on."
