From the beginning of Glee, Rachel Berry's destiny has been to play the lead in the hit Broadway musical Funny Girl. After much hard work and dedication, her hopes and dreams are finally coming true. Gleeks have watched her audition, rehearse, as well as prepare for the show and could not be any more excited to see her opening night be a magical success. In the episode properly titled, “Opening Night”, Rachel is definitely feeling the major pressure to succeed on the big stage. While Rachel is usually confident (and borderline cocky) the pressure is really getting to her, which causes panic and leaves her in desperate need of support. Of course though, Rachel's loyal friends are there to rally behind her. They help Rachel have the strength to focus on bloggers and anonymous cynics that have made it their mission to bring her down, even after rave reviews of her show previews. Kurt even turns their loft into a “hermetically sealed love bubble filled with nothing but positive affirmations”. However, that doesn’t even seem to do the trick, and the gang is forced to rally around the newest Fanny Brice to insure she has an unforgettably amazing opening night. As always, Sue Sylvester wouldn’t miss an opportunity to see a New Directioner fail miserably at something musical related, so she accompanies Mr. Shue to the Big Apple in hopes of watching the absolute train wreck that might be Funny Girl on opening night. Will is there for nothing but absolute support for his former student, but as circumstances would have it both Sue and Will’s night doesn’t go as they had originally planned it. Will Rachel flourish under the pressure, or will she choke once again? That’s right we are looking at you, nerve-wracking original NYADA audition!

  Of course it wouldn’t be a Glee performance without some haters in the audience. Gleeks should be excited for some familiar faces to guest star in “Opening Night.” The ever so annoying McKinley High blogger Jacob Ben Israel (Josh Sussman) returns to the show; is he a Rachel critic? Dave Karofsky (Max Adler) makes his much awaited return to the Glee world and hopefully answers some questions about what he has been up to. Becky Jackson (Lauren Potter) and Mercedes Jones (Amber Riley) will also be making appearances. After the ongoing talk about Rachel’s hopes and dreams of making it big on Broadway, I think we all hope she succeeds! I would hate for people to rain on her Funny Girl parade, and hopefully she won't let them. Are you excited about the big move from Lima, Ohio to New York City? Tune in to Fox on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EST to watch all new episodes of Glee.
