The musical ran on Broadway from late December 1967 to February 1969.

“What, the show for kids?” my colleague, the one with an extravagant collection of adidas tracksuit jackets, replied when I asked if she watched Glee . It’s a regular prejudice to confuse Glee with High School Musical , and therefore to presume that the interpretations of the songs covered on Glee must be intrinsically inferior to their originals.
