DescriptionPoor Lea Michele. It’s one thing to play the ingénue to Kristin Chenoweth’s dipsomaniac belter, which is what she had to do on the fifth episode of “Glee.” It’s quite another to have the show cut back and forth between you and her as you both sing “Maybe This Time” from “Cabaret.” Ms. Michele is a fine singer, but really. We’re talking about Kristin Chenoweth. It felt like there should have been a mercy rule, so they could call it off before anyone had to sing “Everybody … loves a winner …” Ms. Chenoweth made it all work with her singular brand of daffy intensity.
