Biography

Though she gained wide experience in several Broadway musicals, actress Lea Michele became a star thanks to her energetic portrayal of a glee club captain in the critically acclaimed musical drama, "Glee" (Fox, 2009- ). While she captivated audiences with her vocal prowess on the stage, it was the small screen that endeared Michele to millions of fans, thanks to her comic charm - not to mention a rousing rendition of Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" - as a high school misfit looking for somewhere to fit in. Prior to her star-making turn on "Glee," she made waves on Broadway as a 19th century adolescent coming to terms with love and sexuality in the controversial musical, "Spring Awakening" (2006), which earned her a Drama Desk Award nomination. With a commanding presence, powerful vocals and uncanny comedic timing, Michele emerged as an endearing talent destined for great things.
