The Broadway star is spotted filming a scene with Cory Monteith in NYC — get excited Gleeks!

In what is sure to be the greatest moment of Kurt’s (Chris Colfer) life, Patti Lupone is finally making an appearance on Glee! The Broadway legend was spotted by an eagle-eyed NYC resident who tweeted: “patti lupone and cory monteith filming in hk.” What role could she be playing?

It seems that with Patti being Kurt’s idol, maybe the young glee clubber gets a chance to meet Patti when the glee club travels to NYC for nationals. Lea Michele seems to also be filming with Patti, having tweeted: “On set right now working with one of my all time idols…another day where glee makes one of my dreams come true:)”

Our sister site TVLine reports: “In the sequence, Rachel and Kurt run into the Tony winner at iconic eatery Sardi’s.”

Patti recently starred on Broadway in Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown and just received an Outer Critics Circle Nomination for her performance.

Fans have gone to great lengths, even creating Facebook pages, to get Patti on the hit show!
