Glee Warbles And Waves At Nassau Coliseum
About that narrative. For a TV show that hinges on breakups and makeups, the show’s only couple to receive any explicit story during the tour was Blaine and Kurt, in the form of a skit featuring Brittany towards the end of the night. On last year’s tour she embarrassed herself by hitting on Kurt; to redeem herself this year she sets her sights on someone new, yet equally as unattainable—Blaine. When he turns her down, noting that he’s “taken,” Kurt appears on stage and shoos her off, only to get on one knee and “propose” that his boyfriend join the Glee club for the rest of the evening. Chris Colfer changed up Kurt’s lines each night, suiting his proposal to the city and vamping on topics like the name of his and Blaine’s first adopted child and calling out equal marriage laws in appropriate states. On Saturday he referenced the ensuing marriage equality vote, then dropped to his knee and told Blaine “you complete me” before launching into the various ways he does so—the construction to his Brooklyn Bridge, the waitlist to his Serendipity, etc. Blaine, of course, responded positively and changed out of his Dalton-wear in time to join the group for the final numbers.
The overwhelmingly positive reaction should be no surprise based on the media frenzy over Glee’s gay storylines this season and the particular appeal of Colfer and Criss, seeing an arena full of fans of all ages cheering for one boy faux-proposing to another made the greasy-nacho-filled hours I spent on Long Island worthwhile.
