  @weplaycomputers​  Happy #NationalSiblingsDay

   charlescriss fun fact: Darren dragged me to a free parkour class offered at our local gym I wanna say 2007? Anyway, he was great at it and I dislocated my shoulder. Very illadvised.  see no evil #nationalsiblingsday @darrencriss @weplaycomputers



Note:  I remember reading about the Parkour class before, and thinking that was why Darren (as Blaine) was so graceful when he jumped on furniture and balanced on a Dalton Academy sofa.  :amused   (BTW guys, I added a few new smileys.  :happy face )







Hey, better late than never!   It's nice of Darren to tweet this. 





April 10, 2017



I'm not sure, but I think Darren is referring to @hellomaleka's design work for The Criss Project for the shirts at Represent.com.

This design:

(Note:  The sale of the shirt above has closed).





And/Or this design:

I really do like the rock and roll shirt design.  Very cool!




I wonder if Darren knows about the other birthday fundraising drive by @crissfundraiser?  They raised $2,855 for his 30th birthday for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.



And they tweeted this:

I'm guessing that speculation that Darren may be back on Broadway again (probably in Lazarus) is true.  :happy face

He's wearing the same outfit as he did on the day (March 23, 2017) we saw pics of him during a secret photo shoot with Sophia Anne Caruso and Today Tix.


Nice pics of Darren.  I like the playfulness of these pics.

Putting this update here, as well. 

Timeout.com previously  had reported that Darren was among the persons who would be participating in Buzzfeed's Queer Prom.  However, the article no longer is listing Darren's  name.

  Disney’s The Little Mermaid Live Special to Air on ABC

Disney's The Little Mermaid Live Special to Air on ABC

May 16, 2017

ABC is planning its own take on the live television musical with The Wonderful World of Disney: Little Mermaid Live, a two-hour special that will air October 3.

The special will combine the 1989 animated film with live musical performances from celebrity artists performing songs from the Alan Menken-Howard Ashman score. According to ABC, the special will use cutting edge technology to deliver a "never-before-seen live action/animation hybrid television experience."

Disney is also planning a live-action film remake of The Little Mermaid, featuring additional musical material from Hamilton star and creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, who will collaborate with Menken on the project.

The television special is inspired by the celebrity-studded concerts that took place at the Hollywood Bowl last year. The cast included Sara Bareilles as Ariel, Tituss Burgess as Sebastian the Crab, Darren Criss as Prince Eric, Rebel Wilson as Ursula the Sea Witch, Norm Lewis repeating his Broadway role as King Triton, Joshua Colley as Flounder, and John Stamos as Chef Louis.

[. . . ]

Upcoming live musical broadcasts also include Bye Bye Birdie and Jesus Christ Superstar on NBC, as well as A Christmas Story the Musical and Rent on Fox.







Aw, nice twitter conversation.  So sweet of Cynthia Erivo.  :happy face

I love Billboard's support of Darren!  Nice wish list from Billboard:

Billboard wrote:
'Rent' Live Musical Cast Wish List: Miley, Zayn, Lauren Jauregui & More

5/16/2017



Fox announced that 'Rent' will be its next live musical.
It follows last year’s 'Grease Live,' which opened with a performance from Jessie J and starred Julianne Hough, Carly Rae Jepson and Vanessa Hudgens. With that star power, we’re sure Rent will follow suit. Here’s our wish list to fill out the rock musical’s ensemble.

[. . . ]


Darren Criss as Benny
We’re used to seeing Darren as a charming her, so wouldn’t it be delicious seeing him play the slimy businessman? And there’s something fun about him playing a role made famous by Taye Diggs -- as they both took turns as the namesake in Broadway’s adaptation of Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

Our hearts are broken. Yesterday (May 16, 2017) this world lost a beautiful soul in our dear friend and irreplaceable DCA team member, Marsha (@hellomaleka). We will miss her terribly.

We also know she’d kick our asses for wallowing in tears for too long, so we will do our best to celebrate her incredible spirit and find joy on the hardest of days, just like she always did. 

Marsha, we love you, and you are with us always.

I remember that Darren once had praised her art design for a shirt (or shirts) used for his 30th birthday fundraiser:



April 10, 2017




Her photos of Lego Blaine always brought a smile to my face.  My thoughts are with her family and friends.

Cute pics.  Thanks Mia!  What they are doing looks very hard to do.  I was curious what a wombat is, so I googled it.  Wikipedia's definition made me laugh.  "Wombats are short-legged, muscular quadrupedal marsupial . . . "
