Behind the Scenes: Glee Takes NYC!

The Hollywood Reporter mendapatkan kesempatan eksklusif untuk mengikuti aktivitas Glee yang sebelumnya melakukan prosesi syuting di New York City.

Glee star Lea Michele prepares to strut down the TKTS stairs in Times Square to the tune of a "New York, New York" / "I Love New York" mash-up. "I'm thinking, 'Dear God, don't fall,' " she says of this shot

Chris Colfer prepares to shoot a scene on the Wicked stage. Like his Glee character Kurt Hummel, he's a huge fan of the Broadway staple. "I was so excited to be there, in that room," says Colfer. "I've been dreaming about going to that theater since I was 13 when Wicked opened."

Lea Michele gets a final touch-up at the Gershwin Theater, where her character Rachel and Colfer's Kurt will sing "For Good" from Wicked.

Cory Monteith stands on the Bow Bridge in Central Park, where his character Finn and Rachel will share a romantic stroll. "It's very different than being inside a hermetically-sealed bubble at Paramount Studios," he says of the location shoot.

Director Brad Falchuk stands on the granite periphery of the Lincoln Center fountain as a scene is set up. Among the iconic New York visuals referenced in the episode: the films On The Town, Hair, Breakfast at Tiffany's and even Taxi Driver

Matthew Morrison takes a breather in a private banquet area of the Intercontinental Hotel. His Glee character, teacher Will Schuester, finds himself at a crossroads during the NYC visit as he ponders whether to try and grab hold of an elusive dream.

As stand-in Mark Brett relaxes, fans patiently watch the crew set up a scene. "The amount of attention that was on us was challenging," says Cory Monteith. "It just added a different element that you couldn't really anticipate."

Chord Overstreet and Cory Monteith rest between scenes in front of the Lincoln Center fountain. "I wanted to jump in," says Monteith, "I was wearing this puffy vest and a flannel shirt and it was about 95 degrees that day."

"It was pandemonium," says Naya Rivera, who plays Santana. "The turnout was crazy. I didn’t know that we had that many people who cared." Pictured: Dianna Agron, Chord Overstreet and Heather Morris.

"He was entertaining us," says Heather Morris of New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, who showed off some of his own dance moves at a news conference with the cast.

“This is a really hard show to make,” says Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy (pictured here). “People work 18-hour days, they sacrifice family times. It’s amazing to me — when any show does a musical episode, they always get so much press about it, and we do it every day.”

"Such a gorgeous day," says Lea Michele, who fans herself between scenes while beaming from a bridge above a Central Park meadow. "We lucked out."

Executive producer Ian Brennan finds a quiet spot during the hectic shoot at the Intercontinental Hotel in Times Square, where much of the cast and crew also stayed.

Back in L.A., where Matthew Morrison shoots a scene that incorporates his new single, "Still Got Tonight," a member of the crew waves his arms to test the shadowing effect of light and fog.

Cory Monteith turns the Fox FlipCam on himself. "New York has a totally infectious energy," he says.

Matthew Morrison takes a seat at The Million Dollar Theater in downtown Los Angeles. His solo moment on the season 2 finale is directed by Glee creator Ryan Murphy.
