Lea Michele Opens Up About a Broadway Role She Didn't Get

Lea Michele is just like everyone and has faced setbacks in her life and now she’s opening up about not getting a Broadway role she desperately wanted to get.

The 30-year-old Places singer says that she dreamed of landing a role in the recent revival of West Side Story, but she was escorted out of the audition room moments after she arrived.

“Most of the greatest success I’ve had in my life came from a door closing that then led me to something incredible. I was dreaming of being in this production of West Side Story that was coming to Broadway, and I worked so hard on the audition – literally I learned Spanish for it,” Lea told Cosmopolitan.com. “And I get into the room, and before I can even begin – I said maybe one line – and they were like, ‘Thank you so much, have a great day!’ And they escorted me out, and I was gutted.”

“I went home and I cried so hard,” Lea added. “I’m friends with Idina Menzel, and I remember crying to her, being like, ‘What am I going to do? Like this was my dream role, I have to play this part.’ Anyways, a couple weeks later, I end up getting cast on Glee, which was the best thing that ever happened to me.”

Way before they played mother-daughter on Glee, Lea and Idina did a workshop production of a musical called Nero at Vassar College in New York back in 2008.

Lea Michele is spilling the secret behind her incredible body!

The 30-year-old actress just revealed that she’s never eaten fast food and doesn’t eat candy!

“I’m good in the sense that I’ve never eaten fast food. I do not drink soda. I don’t eat candy. Like my house is healthy, so when I’m saying I’m eating a lot it’s like good food that’s worth it,” she told E! News.

She added, “I love working out. I work out to feel good but also so I can eat whatever I want. I want to be able to enjoy myself. I’m Italian. I like to eat big meals. I love red wine. And you know also when you’re traveling and stuff like that I like trying new restaurants and going on adventures, so I can’t limit myself.”

Lea Michele Reveals Her Least Favorite 'Glee' Performance

Lea Michele made an appearance on Watch What Happens Live! and admitted her least favorite performance ever during her time on Glee.

“I think the worst was the ‘What Does the Fox Say?’ song, it was an Internet sensation song that we did with puppets, that was definitely my least favorite song we ever did. And I think the best was probably ‘Somebody to Love’ or’ Don’t Stop Believin.’ But ‘Gangnam Style’ was also probably a low point,” Lea told host Andy Cohen.

You may remember several weeks back, Ryan Murphy, the creator of the show, admitted one of the Glee performances still “mortifies” him.
