Creator Ryan Murphy told EW.com that Lea Michele will do a stripped down version of Gaga’s “Poker Face” and the cast will unite for “Bad Romance.”

From WillingtoBeLucky.net:

It’s been an emotional weekend as we said Goodbye Love to the Rent Broadway Tour at its last stop in Sacramento. We’ve made friends from all across the world; Japan, Australia, Holland, France and of course, America.

We had a chance to thank the cast, crew and everyone involved with the show for its run. If you were able to tune in to our live stream from the stage door on Sat. (we had an impromptu session) and Sun., you saw some of the casts farewell messages to the fans.  I’ll be working on the final video over the next couple of days as I make my way North to Portland.

We (Neal B and I) felt that we should share our experiences from this weekend with all of you dedicated fans who couldn’t make the trip to NoCal to say farewell! We hope you enjoy our coverage and stay tuned for some great videos!

Thank you all for your support and again, hope you enjoy what we have in store!

Measure in Love.
