You don't see this every day


"Glee," a new TV show about a group of geeks who join the choir, is producing a musical number with wheelchairs, The Salt Lake Tribue reported last week. The musical revolves around the challenges of Artie (played by able-bodied Kevin McHale) being in the choir and being in a wheelchair.  Show co-creator Brad Falchuck said at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour last week: "We wanted visually for people to see having somebody handicapped was sort of important to us. And also...the idea of somebody who is in a wheelchair in a show choir is kind of interesting. It's, like, 'Well, what can he do? What can't he do?' Well, he can do a lot of things."
