Chris Colfer and Darren Criss
"We are young/heartache to heartache."
Nobody knows about young love, and young heartbreak, better than the characters on Glee. Which is why it's so shocking that the Fox musical comedy has not yet covered Pat Benatar's iconic hit..

Six By Sondheim
How fortunate for Stephen Sondheim fans that the Broadway musical maestro came of age in the television era. The new HBO documentary Six By Sondheim, premiering Monday at 9/8c, digs deep into TV talk and news program archives to provide a fast moving yet intimate portrait of America's greatest living composer and lyricist. The film also includes several new music-video style interpretations of Sondheim compositions. One includes a cameo by the legend himself in a performance of Opening Doors with Jeremy Jordan, America Ferrera, Laura Osnes and Darren Criss. Sondheim collaborator James Lapine, who directed and co-executive produced Six By Sondheim, offered a glimpse into the filmmaking process.
America Ferrera, James Lapine
Few love words as passionately as Broadway's master composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim, but there's one word that makes him cringe: "Hummable," a quality some (erroneously) find lacking in his challenging, rewarding scores. "Drives me up the wall," he growls.
Which is why it's such an ironic delight when Sondheim performs as part of a new staging of his autobiographical "Opening Doors" production number (from the initially flop musical Merrily We Roll Along), playing a producer who bullies a team of young songwriters to conjure a "humm-umm-able melody."

Chris Colfer and Darren Criss
Despite the show's title, it's a little tough to feel happy and excited about Glee this season. Following the sudden death of Cory Monteith this past July, many of the headlines about the series have been about the death of his character, beloved quarterback and New Directions member-turned-substitute director Finn Hudson, and how the series will move forward without one of its most important characters. For Gleeks across the country and around the world, the thought of watching Glee without Finn is a sad one. However, like any good musical, the show must go on, especially when that show is known for delivering heart, humor and those feel-good moments. Glee returns for its fifth season Thursday (9/8c, Fox), and although there's something missing from the new season, there are plenty of other reasons to tune in for Season 5...
