ROYAL OAK (WWJ) – GLEE The 3D Concert Movie is in theaters now … and Gleeks everywhere will want to make sure they do NOT miss its 2-week limited engagement.

GLEE The 3D Concert Movie is a visual spectacular – combined with a musical experience – that will have audience members singing along, clapping, dancing in the aisles and even inspired. The music that Gleeks know and love is interwoven with heartwarming stories of devoted fans who describe how their lives were changed because of GLEE.

What GLEE fans will love most about GLEE The 3D Concert Movie are the live performances of some of GLEE’s most memorable and much-loved musical numbers, including “I’m a Slave 4 U,” “Raise Your Glass,” “Teenage Dream,” and “Lucky,” along with original songs that reached the top of the charts, such as “Loser Like Me,” and the show’s anthem, “Don’t Stop Believin’.”

GLEE The 3D Concert Movie was filmed over the course of two days during the concert tour’s stop at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The movie stars Dianna Agron (Quinn), Chris Colfer (Kurt), Darren Criss (Blaine), Kevin McHale (Artie), Lea Michele (Rachel), Cory Monteith (Finn), Heather Morris (Brittany), Amber Riley (Mercedes), Naya Rivera (Santana), Mark Salling (Puck), Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina), Harry Shum, Jr. (Mike), Chord Overstreet (Sam), Ashley Fink (Lauren) and members of “The Warblers,” who have their own set of devoted fans, including a particularly young one who obviously spends a good deal of time watching the shows and listening to the music over and over and over again.

Before GLEE begins its 3rd season next month, and the movie wraps up its limited engagement, Gleeks and non-Gleeks alike will want to catch GLEE The 3D Concert Movie. After seeing it, chances are, those falling into the latter category will be transformed.
