Thanks for all of the updates, Poppy!  I especially appreciate your list of his upcoming projects/appearances.  

I guess Darren's recent jaunts to those music festivals is not only for pleasure, but also for a bit of researching for Elsie Fest?  Ah, to have such wonderful researching opportunities!   :big grin

I'll be in Ohio during his "White Rabbit Red Rabbit" and Michigan during Elsie Fest.  So close and yet so far . . .  :cry

I'm happy to see that Darren and Mia are attending Andy Mientus' and Michael Arden's wedding today in England. They seem to be close and I'm glad they will be there to witness and celebrate this joyous event!  Andy and Michael have been tweeting up a storm of cuteness.  I hope we get some great pics from their wedding!

Hi Lilikoiluv! 

Love your signature, Lilikoiluv!  

Aw, you're welcome. 

Oh-man.  Yes, so close, yet so far away.   I wish you were in the same states as "White Rabbit, Red Rabbit" and Elsie Fest, Lilikoiluv!   I would have loved to see Darren in his first play post-Glee.   I hope we get some fan reviews (and maybe a media review?). 

haha!   It must be fun for Darren to visit music festivals and not only enjoy the wonderful music, but also to note the great features of the various music festivals (the physical set-up, the type of food, etc.).  

Aw, Andy and Michael are getting married!  They seem like such a sweet couple and such good friends of Darren.   Feel free to post some tweets and pics (including ones that Darren is not in) of Andy and Michael's wedding, if you want, Lilikoiluv.

This is so sweet.  

totally-heaven-touch:
THIS IS IT GUYS, THIS IS NOT A DRILL, OHMYGAWD AAAHHHH CONGRATULATIONS MICHAEL AND ANDY!!!

Lilikoiluv,

I was thinking there was something different-looking about your post.  And then I realized you have a signature.  (I am very unobservant sometimes.  My parents painted the inside of their living room and I didn't notice it for weeks.  Razz)    I may PM you and ask you how you did that!   It's very cool.  So many lovely Blaine moments captured in your signature!





Darren having fun with his SnapChat.   I obviously don't know my mushrooms, but I've never seen such dark mushrooms, especially ones filled with such love.  :heart eyes

ha.  Darren's face.  I don't recognize the melody being meowed.  This reminds me of when Darren sang " Baby One More Time" (Britney Spears) by meowing.

Speaking of fans meeting Daren in London, I have a question. 

I know that Glee was a big thing at some point but the last episode aired more than a year ago and I don't know if Darren's other projects got that much media attention. On the other hand, we get many stories about fans randomly meeting him somewhere and I guess you're kind of a big deal if you randomly meet fans everywhere you go. So, I was wondering : how famous and popular is he now in the USA ? 

Thank you for your answer(s) :blush

Poppy

Great minds think alike.  :happy face   I was wondering the same thing you were, Jeremy.  The messages of these fans in London are so enthusiastic ("one of the best days of my life," "gonna cry," "so lucky to meet the amazing @darrencriss," "So drinking tequila with @DarrenCriss is everything I dreamed of and more!" "the greatest moment of my life," "my idol," "my favorite person").    It's heartwarming, because his European/international fans rarely get a chance to interact with Darren. 

But I don't know how to assess how popular a celebrity is.  I guess most people look at the number of followers they have on social media, and on other internet sites (tumblr) and how many google searches they receive, as well as how marketable they seem to be (in terms of how well they sell a product, whether it is a product that can be possessed, like an album, or whether it is a ticket to see someone in a film or musical).   

But social media must be taken with a grain of salt, with news of celebrities being able to buy followers etc.  And how well they sell a product or tickets--how "marketable" they are--must be taken with a grain of salt too, because there are many variables.  For instance, how affordable is the product or tickets, how accessible is the product (it's easier to buy an album than to travel to NYC to see a Broadway show, as well as it's easier to see a celebrity on tour than to see a celebrity in one location, like NYC), whether the product (such as a film, or theater piece/musical/play) is at the height of its popularity or its popularity is waning for reasons beyond the control of a particular celebrity (such as the case with Hedwig on Broadway, where the tickets sales were on a downward trend after it passed its one-year mark), whether the over-all quality of a product is compromised for reasons beyond the control of one particular celebrity, such as the case of the film "Girl Most Likely" (where the overall film itself was judged in a negative fashion by critics, mostly due to its screenplay, although many critics gave Darren's performance in the film a positive reception), and whether the product with which the celebrity is involved  is family friendly or has a mainstream appeal (or not).    I'm sure there are other factors that may make it unclear or difficult to assess the marketability of a celebrity.  

I do think if a product associated with a celebrity has sold well, then it's more clear that celebrity is fairly marketable.  However, if a product associated with a celebrity has not sold as well as expected, it does not necessarily mean that celebrity is not as marketable, because of the other variables that I mentioned above.  

It's sort of comparable to trying to assess side effects of medications that are seeking approval by the FDA (the Federal Drug Administration) of the U.S.  If there are X, Y, Z side effects reported in studies, they need to consider if other variables existed to rule out that those variables may have played a part ( along with the medication itself) in causing the side effects.

I know that for the Glee auctions, Darren's items sold well.   But does that mean he is more popular than other Glee cast members?   I know he has some well-funded fans.  This is also supported by the fact that he sold quite a few "Not Alone" t-shirts (and those shirts were not that cheap).  

Another factor is how rare is the commodity that is being associated with the celebrity.  For example, if Darren has done 5 Broadway musicals and/or plays, and then he does an album, I would guess more fans would buy his album because it is a rare commodity (versus Darren will continue to star in future Broadway musicals or plays).   Supply versus demand.   But then again, an album is more affordable, more accessible, and may have more of a mainstream or family friendly appeal than a particular Broadway play or musical as well.  So those variables tend to blur things.

So in short, I don't know.  :amused

Anyone else have thoughts?

And of course, popularity of a celebrity is connected to the popularity of the product with which the celebrity is most often closely associated (TV show, film, musical, etc).   The cast of The Big Bang are more well known and popular than a less well-known TV show.

I personally also believe that the reputation of a celebrity also contributes to their popularity.  Darren has the reputation of going above and beyond for his fans, making time to take pics and sign autographs even when he is busy, making eye contact (trying to make a connection), asking fans how they are doing (showing he cares), just in general being very kind to others because he is a decent, good person.   Also, I'm sure he also is aware of how important these moments will be to people, how sometimes the memory of these moments can carry various individuals through tough times in their lives.

Okay, I'm popping in for a moment just to expose my nerdiness.  The A. Akbar that Darren is referring to is Admiral Ackbar in Star Wars. Although I must admit my disappointment in Darren misspelling his name! ha! 

The "Don't Grow Up" is, of course referring to Peter Pan. "It's a trap!" is an infamous line that Admiral Ackbar announces in "Return of the Jedi". Some Star Wars fans use the quote in hilarious references in "It's a Trap!" memes. lol. 
Here's a video of the scene.  Ackbar's line comes at about 58 seconds.

You may recall my fellow Star Wars nerd, Darren, tweeting some love when the actor that voiced Admiral Ackbar died recently in April:

I actually LOVE Lin's and *Jeremy*'s signatures.  The many facets of Darren is so awesome, and, of course, Klaaaaaaine...in the elevator! They both make me smile when I see them!  :love

Sorry for the short post. I hope to add to your interesting conversation a little later, but for now, it's nighty-night time!   Sleep

Thanks so much for this informative explanation, Lilikoiluv!   I had no idea who Ackbar was (and haha!  to being disappointed in Darren misspelling Ackbar's name :big grin ).  Thanks for the link to that Star Wars "It's a trap scene."   I am so impressed that you knew this, Lilikoiluv!  

Yes, I love all the signatures of you guys! 

I would love to get your input/views on the issue of how popular Darren is (and how to gauge a celebrity's popularity) whenever you have some free time, Lilikoiluv!   Also if others want to jump into this discussion too (Tash, springbay, dusty, Lin).

Hypable wrote:Photos: Darren Criss, Ben Affleck, Margot Robbie see 'The Cursed Child' together
Full circle moment alert: A Very Potter Musical star Darren Criss saw Harry Potter and the Cursed Child this weekend!
 
Criss, who was best known for his role as Harry Potter in StarKid’s musical before he joined Glee, got to see the first official Potter play at London’s Palace Theater.

He attended the show with two superstars: Ben Affleck and Margot Robbie, who played Batman and Harley Quinn in Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad earlier this year.

The Cursed Child’s official Twitter account released the following photos of Darren Criss, Ben Affleck, and Margot Robbie attending the show over the weekend.

We wonder what Criss in particular thought of the show? He hasn’t said anything about it on Twitter (yet).

With this development, Criss has beaten fellow known-for-playing-Harry-Potter person Dan Radcliffe to seeing The Cursed Child. The original Harry Potter actor recently said that he wouldn’t see it until the mayhem dies down. However, he plans to read the script book on an upcoming vacation.

His co-stars Emma Watson and Rupert Grint have already seen the play.

The Cursed Child opened officially on July 30, the day before the script book was released worldwide.

Thank you for your answer about how famous and popular he is now. Actually, I was kind of wondering : "if I meet a bunch of American people and begin to talk about Darren, would they know who he is ?". 

I've watched the HTL interview. It was nice to see him back on a talkshow.

Hi Jeremy,

Yes, I agree, it was nice to see him back on a talk show.  I was just thinking the same thing.  Hopefully, we'll see him on a talk show for another project, maybe Smitten?  


Jeremy wrote:Thank you for your answer about how famous and popular he is now. Actually, I was kind of wondering : "if I meet a bunch of American people and begin to talk about Darren, would they know who he is ?".

Hmm.  I guess it depends on what group of Americans, in terms of their demographics.   If it's folks in their teens or twenties, I would say you would have a larger chance of them knowing who Darren is, than older folks.  Darren definitely has older fans, but I'm guessing many older folks didn't watch Glee, even when it was big, unless they kept in touch with pop culture.   My husband works with mostly older folks and most of them have not heard of Glee, which to me, is a big surprise (since as a fan of Glee, I assume most people would know about the show).   I think it's safe to say that Lea is the most well-known of the Glee cast, and many of my husband's co-workers don't know who she is, or Cory.   Of course, there is a big flaw in using my husband's co-workers as a study group, since it's just a small group of folks.   :amused



I once visited a relative on his college campus, and met with many of his friends.  Most of them knew about Glee.   Another relative is now in her early thirties, and she knew about Glee.  My older relatives had not heard about it, except one older relative, who watches a lot of TV.

And I don't think Darren has yet become a visible name in terms of theater/Broadway actors.   (I am hopeful in time, he may be.  I'll love for him to do some plays, along with musicals, like Daniel Radcliffe did.)    Ideally, I would love for him to gain more wide-spread visibility (which also would make him more accessible to his fans, especially those not in the U.S.) by doing some films, some TV roles and releasing some music.

Yes, I agree, it was nice to see him back on a talk show.  I was just thinking the same thing.  Hopefully, we'll see him on a talk show for another project, maybe Smitten?

Such a shame the HTL people didn't ask a question about Smitten...
