Glee’s leading man Matthew Morrison is now officially juggling two time-consuming careers, one playing high school teacher Will Schuester on the hit musical-comedy television series about a glee club; the other as a recording artist with an album due May 10; the single, "Summer Rain," has just been released. But when things settle down or he figures out how to find time, the triple-threat actor, singer and dancer wants to start his own arts school.
“My thing is arts education, which is always great for me. It always has been, but it coincides with my role on Glee,” Morrison tells Samaritanmag. “I’m a proud product of a public performing arts high school and my mission — and what I want my legacy to be — is to create a chain of accredited performing arts high schools.
“I’d love to do it all around the world because I was so lucky and fortunate to find my passion when I was really young, in theatre and singing and in the arts,” he explains. “A lot of people don’t get to experience that. So I’d love to have a place where people can actually go and see if that’s what they’d like to do and have a really great performing arts school.”
