Lea Michele on her post Glee plans: “I plan on playing every role on Broadway”

If Glee fans are afraid that Lea Michele might find a lull in her career after her run as Rachel Berry – have no fear.

“I don’t stop,” Lea says. “It’s my nature. People have to tell me to slow down. I plan on playing every role on Broadway. I want to do Evita. I want to do Sweeney Todd with [Glee costar] Chris Colfer. We want to do Wicked. I’ll be Elphaba and he wants to play ‘Guy-linda.’ I want to do movies, make music. Glee is only the beginning.”

And although she has encountered some difficulties over the course of her career, that began back in the late 90’s in Buster & Chauncey’s Silent Night, the Bronx bred diva, who openly shares that she’s only “five foot three,” isn’t letting anything or anyone hold her back.

She may not “look like a lot of other people, you know what I mean? I look like I’m 12,” but that won’t stop here.  Nor will the managers that have told the twenty-four year old to “get a nose job,” while others in the industry have stated that she’s “not pretty enough.” How does the young actress deal with the hard criticism?  Easily, with the retort that she has “proved them wrong.”  Also adding that -“people have to remember this is all new for us.  We’re all reasonably young, except for Cory [Monteith], who’s old.” (He’s 29.) “I’ve learned some lessons.  But people are going to say what they want to say. I know who I am, and I’m not perfect.”

Proof that this is only the beginning, Michele is slated to appear in Garry Marshall‘s New Year’s Eve as the character Elise, and the children’s movie Dorothy of Oz, where she will voice the role of the title character.
