DISHING DIVA: The Show Goes On for Glee’s Matthew MorrisonBy Delaina Dixon | July 15, 2013 | Dish!, Entertainment
The news of Glee star Cory Monteith‘s death on July 13 has been a shock for his co-stars from the series, from Jane Lynch, who was spotted looking pensive on the streets of New York City this past weekend, to Lea Michele, who played his on-screen love Rachel Berry, and was his real-life girlfriend as well. She is said to be “inconsolable” over Cory’s unexpected passing.
But the show had to go on for co-star Matthew Morrison. The Broadway alum who plays Will Schuester, Finn’s former glee club teacher and personal mentor, is currently starring in his own cabaret production at swanky New York City nightclub 54 Below. Like a true professional, the actor still appeared on stage on Sunday night for┬áa second round of performances.
Matthew acknowledged his friend and co-star’s death during the production, theater critic Brian Scott Lipton of Cititour shared with the DivaGals, adding that Matthew was visibly sad, and announced to the audience that Cory was his “brother.”
Matthew and the rest of the cast are set to resume production on the fifth season of the series July 22. No word yet on how Cory’s death will affect the fate of his on-screen persona.
