I've been watching the news for most of the day and am so inspired to see so many people participating in the Women's Marches today.   Just fantastic to see all sectors of people gathering together to send a message.  It's a wonderfully impressive feat achieved by the organizers and participants.   The next step is for these same folks and others to stay engaged and involved, and to make their voices heard over the next four years to their legislative representatives and to Trump and his administration.  But what a glorious day!    It really did warm my heart and make me feel hopeful for the future, because we do have power to make a difference, as long as we continue to care and to work at it.

And of course, Darren and Mia and friends were there in the Los Angeles Women's March.   Such great role models!   Hats off to them and to others who showed up to make their voices heard!

Broadway Con info.  :happy face



So an update:  Darren is no longer scheduled to appear tonight (Friday) at BroadwayCon.

I was reading Gleekto's blog (link: http://gleekto.tumblr.com/post/156449982865), and an anon suggested that the reason why Darren was no longer scheduled to appear tonight at BroadwayCon was because of an issue involving Actor's Equity.  Gleekto linked to an article in the NY Times about a dispute between the BroadwayCon organizers and the Actors' Equity.  

The first NY Times article (dated January 22):  https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/22/arts/broadwaycon-faces-dispute-with-actors-equity-association.html

Last year, Actors' Equity Association and BroadwayCon organizers agreed upon a contract about payment terms for future conventions.  According to Actors' Equity, at the time of this first article (article dated January 22), they felt BroadwayCon organizers were not honoring the contract.   According to this article:

NY Times wrote:
January 22, 2017

Part of the dispute centers on roughly two hours of performance time in two events on the convention’s main stage, involving 10 Actors’ Equity performers.


The link for the second NY Times article (dated January 24) is:  https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/24/theater/broadwaycon-resolves-dispute-with-actors-equity-association.html?_r=1


So the dispute between the Actors' Equity Association and the organizers of BroadwayCon was resolved on Monday.  However, this article states: 

NY Times wrote:
January 24, 2017

However, two sessions during the weekend, in which other performers were to sing show tunes and songs from jukebox musicals, will be altered. The events would have required a separate contract and pushed the convention past its budget for this year, Melissa Anelli, one of BroadwayCon’s lead organizers, said.

The article goes on to say: 
NY Times wrote:The actors scheduled to sing will largely be replaced by songwriters and composers, and the nature of the events is still being finalized. But those actors may still appear in other sessions. For instance, Darren Criss (“Hedwig and the Angry Inch”) is to appear on a panel and as part of a theater-oriented game show.

It makes sense that this is the most likely the explanation of why Darren was no longer scheduled to appear in tonight's (Friday night's) event at BroadwayCon.  These kinds of disputes between parties happen, and they are beyond Darren's control.

Darren is still scheduled to appear on Saturday morning as a contestant in the "BroadwayCon Feud" game, and on Saturday 12 noon as a moderator of the Speech & Debate panel/preview.  :happy face


This was captured by DarrenCrissArmy:

UPDATE: Darren is no longer scheduled to appear at the BroadwayCon Cabaret tonight (1/27)

ANN ARBOR—”True Blue! A Tribute to Michigan” brings together students, faculty and alumni in a live action multimedia presentation that tells the story of the University of Michigan.

James Earl Jones, Sanjay Gupta, Darren Criss, Margo Martindale and Cecilia Munoz are among many distinguished alumni scheduled to participate in this U-M bicentennial event.

Taking place at 7 p.m. April 8 at Hill Auditorium, the show incorporates live music, theater and dance, and features faculty and students from across many U-M schools and colleges, along with celebrated alumni. The show also features new music composed by faculty and alumni specifically for the bicentennial.

Tickets go on sale at 9 a.m. Feb. 3 at the Michigan Union Ticket Office, and online at 10 a.m. that same day.

In addition to live performances, multiple short videos will showcase notable alumni from across the country.

Interweaving the arts with testimonials from a spectrum of Michigan alumni and faculty, “True Blue!” celebrates the history, accomplishments, traditions, character and ethos that define Michigan.

University of Michigan's star alums share stage during True Blue!





April 8, 2017


ANN ARBOR, MI - From the command module pilot of Apollo 15 to the producer of "Hamilton" to the former director of the White House Domestic Policy to Jim Harbaugh, it was a star-studded evening to pay tribute to 200 years of the University of Michigan.

"True Blue! A Tribute to Michigan" brought all of these alumni onto one stage for a multimedia presentation on Saturday, April 8, inside Hill Auditorium to tell the story of UM as part of its UMich200 Spring Festival.

Harbaugh, Sanjay Gupta, Darren Criss, Jeffrey Seller and Cecilia Munoz were among a laundry list of distinguished alumni participating in the UM bicentennial event.

[. . . ]


Criss, who provided emcee duties and comic relief throughout the evening, paid tribute to UM's School of Music, Theatre & Dance during his duties, pointing to the level of success alumni have had on Broadway and afar.

"Every time I look to see a Broadway show, even without knowing it, there's about an 80 percent chance there are at least two Michigan graduates in it. So what you saw was about a $1,000 value," he joked, referring to a theatre and drama acting majors who had exited the stage.

True Blue! showcases historical contributions of the University




April 9, 2017

Several distinguished alumni, including Sanjay Gupta, chief medical correspondent for CNN, actor Darren Criss and Cecilia Muñoz, former director for White House Domestic Policy Council, each touched on their own personal connections to the University of Michigan at the True Blue! event Saturday night.

[. . . ]

As Darren Criss, event emcee, took the stage, he reminded the audience of the University’s prevalence on Broadway. A 2009 graduate, Criss achieved prominence on the hit TV show, “Glee,” where he portrayed an openly gay student and singer. He now stars in a national tour of the musical “Hedwig and The Angry Inch.”

“Every time I look to see a Broadway show, even without knowing it, there's about an 80 percent chance there are at least two Michigan graduates in it,” he said.

Criss’s hosting brought many students, such as LSA freshman Caylin Luebeck, to the event, who then found much more.
