Beneath the bright spotlight on the small stage of 54 Below, Matthew Morrison began his final cabaret show the same way he had the first: by paying heartfelt homage to Cory Monteith, his Glee costar who unexpectedly passed away on Saturday.
"This week has been an interesting one for me. I lost a good friend of mine, Cory Monteith," Morrison said solemnly to a sold-out crowd at the intimate New York City venue on Wednesday evening. "He was like a brother to me .... So, I'm going to start the show tonight with a song for Cory."
