Next Tuesday, “Glee” will take on the 1975 cult classic “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” The film celebrates its 35th anniversary this year, and fittingly, “Glee” stars Lea Michele and Matthew Morrison will also participate in a musical tribute show to benefit Paul Newman’s The Painted Turtle camp. The event, which features a costume ball and a laundry list of stars — Jack Nicholson, Danny DeVito, Billy Idol, Evan Rachel Wood, Mario Lopez, Jason Segel, Ricki Lake — will take place Oct. 28 at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles.
But if you can’t make it to L.A. or simply can’t wait for next week’s “Glee,” here’s a preview of the show’s version of “Time Warp.” Quinn (Dianna Agron) and Santana (Naya Rivera) share the role of Magenta in the episode, but Agron takes on the vocals in this number.
Readers, is this a worthy tribute? Mr. Schuester (Matthew Morrison) sure seems to like it.
