Gleeks everywhere had reason to celebrate this weekend!
“Glee” stars Lea Michele, Darren Criss, Jenna Ushkowitz
and creator Ryan Murphy hit the 2017 Elsie Festival over the weekend and
their reunion made many of us realize how much we miss the
hit singing show.
Lea Michele tweeted a
photo of their crew and captioned it, “Glee family I
love you @MrRPMurphy thank you for introducing me tonight… and
@DarrenCriss such a special night! “

The festival, held in New
York City’s Central Park and dubbed the Coachella of Broadway, was filled with
incredible performances from Lea and Darren, as well as singing heavyweights
“Moana” star Auli’I Cravalho, Ingrid Michaelson, Jeremy Jordan and
Lea kicked things off with
two Rachel Berry classics, “Don’t Rain on my Parade” and
“Maybe This Time.”
Darren didn’t disappoint either and brought back the Warbler hit, “Teenage Dream,” which he played on the piano.
Then he and Lea teamed up to sing “Falling
Slowly,” which she said was a special song for them both.
“It’s so nice to have all of these amazing memories from ‘Glee’
together,” Lea told the crowd.
One excited festival-goer shared all the performances on Instagram
