If you make a Venn Diagram that shows the cast of Glee in one circle and the cast of The LXD in another, Harry Shum Jr. would be the only individual listed where (and the only reason why) the two circles intersect. That is, except if you’re making your Venn Diagram in the summer. Then, you’d just be looking at two concentric circles. That’s when The LXD joins Glee on tour.
Jon M. Chu’s online original megahit about dueling factions of dancers with superhero powers is reuniting with the cast of the most web video savvy series on your TV for a 16-city national tour beginning on May 21 in Las Vegas and concluding on June 18 in Uniondale, NY. Last year the two casts combined for a similar live and on tour collaboration. Ain’t nuthin’ but a Glee thang.
Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy conceived of the Glee Live in Concert! tour while Shum Jr. is in charge of, and the artistic director for The LXD collaboration, along with Christopher Scott. Fox recently announced it will film this year’s tour to turn into a concert flick, Glee Live! In 3D!, directed by Kevin Tancharoen, the creator and director of the red hot Mortal Kombat: Legacy web series.
The LXD is slated to release its third chapter and third season in its epic storyline this summer.
