"Having another one of those beyond thankful moments at work," she tweeted on Friday. "When west side story came to bway [Broadway] a few years ago I wanted to do it SO bad! When I didn't get it was so devastated. If someone told me then that a few years later I'd be playing the same part but on a TV show I wouldn't have believed it. As cheesy as it is..dreams come true! That's why never give up [and] when one door closes a huge window will open."
We can't wait to see her performance when it airs on 'Glee.' We also want to see another performance by Harry Shum Jr, who completely blew us away during the 'Asian F' episode with his singing and, of course, his dancing. And by the way, how adorbs is this photo Lea tweeted earlier this week of her as a youngster?
