In an episode written by series star Chris Colfer, Rachel attempts to salvage her reputation among Broadway gossipers, by hiring Santana as her publicist and creating a charity for rescue animals. Meanwhile, Kurt (Colfer) nabs the lead role in a retirement home production of “Peter Pan.”
Rachel’s duplicitous actions come back to haunt her as news that she missed a performance of Funny Girl in order to audition for a TV pilot – and lied to producers about it – begins to hit the press. In order to prevent a wave of bad publicity that could sully her fresh image, Rachel enlists Santana’s help in rebranding herself. Deciding she needs to champion a worthwhile cause, she and the girls organize an all-female musical gala to benefit a local dog shelter (aptly titled “Broadway Bitches”), but Rachel soon realizes there is a marked difference between simply looking like a good person, and actually being one.
Kurt – who has been starting to feel inadequate in the wake of everyone else’s recent successes and finding himself excluded from the all-girl performance – befriends former Broadway star Maggie Banks, who is currently living in a senior-citizens home for retired performers. When he is given the chance to join the elderly cast in their production of Peter Pan, he seizes the opportunity, and tries to make a positive difference in the lives of Maggie, her friends, and her family. Meanwhile, the smitten Sam is eager to prove to Mercedes that he’s a responsible and dependable adult worthy of being considered husband (and father) material. To prove his point, he adopts a dog, but when “McConaughey” proceeds to destroy the apartment (and Mercedes’ expensive hair extensions), Sam must teach the dog some obedience or admit failure.
Is Chris Colfer doing a sneaky “Peter Pan” audition for NBC’s upcoming live production? Somebody on set tweeted, “…We’re doing a musical number with Chris in a flying harness and old people…” That’s the real reason. An excuse to fly in a harness! This should be good.
I have NO idea what this photo is about, but the caption is pretty interesting, “Today’s job: drag a high maintenance, over paid actress around in a $700 dress…” When the photo hit the internets, it was deleted IMMEDIATELY. Hm.
There WILL be special guest stars in this episode, including Star Wars’ icon, Billy Dee Williams. Apparently, there is also a yet-to-be named Academy Award-winning actress guest starring in the episode…
