She's a theater legend best known for her Tony-winning performance as Kim in "Miss Saigon." 

So it shouldn't come as a surprise that Lea Salonga is a hit with Hollywood celebrities -- including "Glee" star Lea Michele. 

After catching her in the revival of "Once On This Island" in Broadway, Michele could not help but gush over Salonga, admitting that she has been a fan of the Pinoy singer growing up. 

"I've been a fan of [Lea Salonga] since I was a little girl. So incredible seeing her today," she wrote on Twitter this Thursday (Manila time) as the caption to a photo of them together. 

Salonga replied by saying that she's also a fan of Michele, who starred as Rachel in the award-winning show "Glee."

"It's not often I meet a namesake so today was very special! Big fan of yours, too!" Salonga told Michele. 

Salonga is currently in New York as part of the Broadway revival of "Once On This Island." 

In the musical, she plays one of the island gods who will help lead character Ti Moune (Hailey Kilgore) reunite with the man who has captured her heart.
