“It’s just really nice to get to step into a different world for a little while, ” says Lea. “I thoroughly enjoy being at William McKinley High School Monday through Friday at ‘Glee, ‘ but it’s been really great to step into another world and play another character for a little while. It only makes the job that I do every day even more enjoyable.”

Taking place where the original 1939 film left off, Dorothy (Michele) wakes up back in Kansas after the tornado has devastated her community. She finds a new means to transport back to Oz, only to discover that her three friends – Scarecrow (Dan Aykroyd), Lion (Jim Belushi) and Tin Man (Kelsey Grammer) – have disappeared.
