I did not know he was one of the S2 Warblers.  Thanks for the info, Lin. 

Yes, it's nice that Darren enjoys and is comfortable working with, and I also assume has faith and confidence in, these smart, talented folks from Glee.

Cross our fingers!   We would like to know soon (please), Darren.   Thanks!

Darren Criss Slays a Stripped-Down 'I Dreamed a Dream' from Les Miserables

July 26, 2017

This article originally appeared on EW.com


It’s a good time to be a Gleek! Less than a day after Lea Michele, along with Ashley Tisdale, released a killer cover of Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own,” Darren Criss shared a stripped-down take of Les Misérables favorite “I Dreamed a Dream.”

The cut was performed to help announce the third iteration of Elsie Fest, which will once again feature “stars and songs from the stage and screen” and take place on Oct. 8 of this year at City Park’s SummerStage in New York City’s Central Park. Ticketing information can be found on the event’s website. The 2017 lineup has not yet been revealed.



Earlier this year, Criss debuted his new band Computer Games, which features his brother Chuck. EW spoke to the two around the release of their four-song EP, Lost Boys Life, about their retro-sounding output. “The music has quite coincidentally ended up hearkening back to the sounds of the popular dance records of the time when we were young children, so late ’80s, early ’90s,” said Criss. “That’s a nice coincidence, considering that the music is nostalgic thematically, and all the songs that we have are about growing up and, because we grew up in the era, it’s sort of appropriate.

Darren Criss' Acoustic "I Dreamed A Dream" Will Move You To Tears

In honor of the Elsie Fest 2017 announcement, Darren Criss took to YouTube to share an incredibly touching, acoustic version of the popular Les Misérables ballad, “I Dreamed A Dream.”


The third annual Elsie Fest will be held October 8th at Central Park’s Summerstage and will be hosted by Elvis Duran! Tickets will be available for pre-sale on August 1st at elsiefest.com.


Rumor has it that Lea Michele and Alan Cumming are on the bill, but no official lineup announcements have been made.

Check out Darren's "I Dreamed A Dream" below, but get your tissues ready first!
