I just watched this pilot on the Fox website, and it is so great. This is a clip from the end of the episode, and I tell ya, I was smiling from ear to ear. I don't know why things like this make me so happy... they just do! This is definitely going on my running playlist!
**After some research, I found out that the guy who plays the teacher was Link Larkin in the original broadway recording of Hairspray, which is one of my faves. He also just finished South Pacific at Lincoln Center. The girl who plays Rachel has been on broadway for years and just finished Spring Awakenings on broadway.
