Two reviews: 

BWW Review: Darren Criss, Betsy Wolfe, and the National Symphony Bring a Little Broadway to Kennedy Center

And

Review: ‘NSO Pops: Broadway Today with Darren Criss & Betsy Wolfe’ at The Kennedy Center (DC Metro Theater Arts)





Review by DC Metro Theater Arts wrote:Darren Criss owned the stage with his near-palpable charisma and his fantastic acting of the song. With his energetic opener, the fun “I Love Betsy” from Honeymoon in Vegas, by Jason Robert Brown, to the emotional intensity of “The Streets of Dublin” from A Man of No Importance, by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, he showed off his legit Broadway chops, yet with his own pop twist.

Review by DC Metro Theater Arts wrote:

Criss’ acoustic version of “I Dreamed a Dream,” from Les Misérables, was intimate and sad, even heart-wrenching in its sincerity. And in a first for the National Symphony Orchestra, they played a song from The Book of Mormon, as Criss (and even Reineke, for a little bit) sang the hilarious “You and Me (But Mostly Me).”

While both Criss and Wolfe were great on their own, they were even better together. Their version of “Suddenly Seymour” from Little Shop of Horrors was upbeat and rowdy, while “Falling Slowly” from Once (with Criss playing guitar) was intimate and intense. It was easy to see that Criss is most comfortable with a guitar in his hands and singing in a more folk style. Their encore, “Take Me or Leave Me” from Rent was fun and sassy—a perfect sendoff for the audience.

Darren will appear only on September 14th - Tickets

Note:  This is really interesting to me, that Darren is now making appearances to perform.

I'm hoping this is a positive sign that Darren is working on his own music.  :fingers crossed

Norah Jones and Darren Criss Added to All star Petty Fest Lineup: Second Night Added Due to Popular Demand


Due to popular demand a second night of Petty Fest has been added at Fonda Theatre for September 14th.  The Best Fest is very proud to announce that Norah Jones, Darren Criss (of Glee fame,) and Matthan Minster of Cage The Elephant have joined the all-star line-up celebrating the music of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers.

. . . Ticket sale proceeds will benefit Refuge Foundation for the Arts, a non-profit organization supporting the creation of music and art. Located in Appleton, Wisconsin, the ten-acre sanctuary houses recording and art studios and residences. “Celebrating the living legacy of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers with an amazing line-up is a lot of fun,” says Best Fest founder Austin Scaggs. “But raising money for Refuge Foundation, and doing our part to help support and nurture a new wave of musicians and artists makes this all worthwhile.”

[. . . ]

The Best Fest is proud to begin its partnership with Refuge Foundation for the Arts, which was founded in response to the lack of resources available to artists today, and honored to support their mission: “Helping Artists Create.”

“Refuge Foundation is a way for musicians and artists to take care of our own,” says Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter Cory Chisel, who created the Refuge Foundation with his partner, Adriel Denae. “Our goal is to free the artist’s creative and business process from the strictures of the current model, which can often become an economic stranglehold for artists, especially when it comes to musicians, record labels, and the business of making records.” While Refuge Foundation provides opportunities for so many facets of the arts – photography, sculpture, film, dance, wood and metal working, and more –  the Best Fest will focus its partnership on emerging musicians and The Refuge Artist in Residence Program.  (emphasis added)

Another clip of Darren from last night.   I'm not completely sure, but it sounds like he's straining his voice on the high notes (it also happened for part of his performance with Vulfpeck at Brooklyn Bowl).   I love his passion when he performs--it's what makes him such a dynamic and magnetic performer--but sometimes control is compromised a bit.

A mention of Darren (at Joe's Pub on September 8, as special guest at Justin Vivian Bond's show).
BroadwayWorld wrote:
BWW Review: Justin Vivian Bond is 'Golden' in Anniversary Show at Joe's Pub

Joining Bond on v's celebration was Molly Ringwald (The Breakfast Club), Bond's friend of two decades and a stage performer in her own right. Ringwald took the reins, singing a duet with Darren Criss (HEDWIG & THE ANGRY INCH), who Bond remarked looks a great deal like the Sixteen Candles star's husband Panio Gianopoulos. Together, they harmonized beautifully while singing "Vibrate" by Bond and Ringwald's mutual pal, Rufus Wainwright. And Criss, who met Ringwald just weeks ago, let her take the reins while appearing genuinely awestruck at the opportunity to perform with her.

Understandably, those in the audience lost their minds.
