Glee creator Ryan Murphy has confirmed plans to turn the hit show into a Broadway musical – and he’s already holding auditions.
Bosses at Music Theatre Intl. announced in March they were in “negotiations” to turn the popular singing and dancing programme into a New York stage production.

But 20th Century Fox representative Chris Alexander moved quickly to slam the claims, insisting he was “mystified” about the rumoured talks.

Now Murphy has ended speculation by announcing a stage show is in the pipeline, telling the New York Daily News the musical is “definitely” happening. He adds, “I’m auditioning people now.”
