The Fox hit musical series "Glee" recently announced that it will not continue past a sixth season, so we thought: What stage work could "Glee" actor Chris Colfer star in on Broadway?

Playbill.com polled our readers via Facebook and Twitter asking them to share what show Colfer should star in and why.

Here are some of our reader responses followed by our own commentary.

@lizsquirrels: He would be perfect as Elder Price in @BookofMormon!!!
@corinne_allison: I agree about Book of Mormon. He would be a wonderful Elder Price. Also Seymour in Little Shop
@alexbly: Elder Price

The Book of Mormon, which opened in March 2011, took home nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and originally starred Josh Gad and Andrew Rannells as Elder Cunningham and Elder Price, respectively. We also think that Colfer would be great for Elder McKinley, the role originated on Broadway by Rory O'Malley. Check out our 2011 Playbill Picks feature in which our staff picked ten "Glee" stars we'd like to see on Broadway.
