Musicians slated to perform on the night are Wayne Bergeron, Page Hamilton, Inna Faliks, Starr Parodi, Amy Keys, Jonathan Sacks, Red Mandala, and Lizzie Ball. They will be led by Maestro Anthony Parnther of the Hollywood Bowl.

I thought this was a clever use by a literary site, @The_Millions.   The pic is from a early Glee photo shoot (don't remember when).  Darren has good balance.  :happy face

I can't quite make out the name of where Mia says they are?  (I hope they are not there anymore, because you know . . . ).  ha!  I like the sound effects from Darren.  It looks sorta futuristic, with the dome structures.

Thanks Jeremy.  And thanks for the link.  Funny and weird and sci-fi.   I didn't even know about it, although I've been to Joshua Tree.  One of these days, if I'm in the area, I'll like to visit.  :happy face


On a different topic, I know in the last couple of days, there have been a few videos and pics posted with Darren in the background.  I've always been a person who highly values my privacy, so my policy is to try to respect Darren's privacy too.  It's my policy to not post pics or videos, where it's not clear that Darren even is aware he is being photographed or videotaped.  

I'm guessing he's aware of at least some of those pics/videos'  public posting, and if he really wanted to, he could ask to have them taken down.  But still, my preferred policy is to not post them, because it still remains that filming him or taking photos of him without his clear agreement in the first place, makes me feel a bit uncomfortable (again, even though, he may not want to go to the trouble after the fact, of asking every friend or acquaintance who does this to please refrain).  On this issue, Darren Criss Army and I seem to agree.  Just something to keep in mind.  :happy face




From Darren Criss Army:

Cute pic.   They both look lovely.  :happy face  (But why is Darren publicizing where they are staying??)  Since he tagged La Vida Loca, is this for Versace filming?   Or are they finished filming ("cut")?  Have fun!

Great pic. I thought the shooting was over but it may be a false memory lol. As "la vida loca" means "crazy life", it could be a reference to Vegas' way of life, though.

Let us know, Jeremy, if you read any new news about Versace filming.  :happy face 

I remember Darren saying something to the effect that he'll be working on Versace for most of the year.  But some of that time may be post-production? 

I read on Gleekto's blog that Ricky Martin was/is performing in Las Vegas (hence Darren's tag of "#LaVidaLoca").   So it's possible Darren and Mia were there to see Ricky Martin's show?

Posting this just because it was posted publicly on a BroadwayWorld.com article. Not sure how reliable is the info about Darren being in this production of Leveling Up.   But it is fun to talk about.  :happy face

Regarding BroadwayWorld's mention of Darren and Leveling Up

There is no other mention anywhere on the internet of this play coming to Broadway, no evidence that it is planned in any way, let alone imminent. IF this is something that may happen, it has not been confirmed or in any way officially reported. Yes, it’s exciting to think of Darren being back on Broadway, but please take these rumors with a grain of salt, since that is really all they are. Rumors. Should there be an official announcement regarding this project or Darren’s involvement in it we will be sure to let you know!

I believe this weekend is the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas.   Guessing that Darren will be there.  Maybe he'll see his friend, Tom Poleman there as well.  :happy face

That episode was funny (and Darren looks great in that vampire-inspired costume and that wig with long hair.  I think those boots were from his performance in The Little Mermaid concert at the Hollywood Bowl).

Betsy Wolfe is so cute and bubbly.  Darren, are you up to the Pie challenge?

@DarrenCriss need help? I have pie supplies. Your turn. @WaitressMusical https://t.co/tpbWrWoEEh
— Betsy Wolfe (@BetsyWolfe) October 17, 2017


I think this is a pie challenge for charity, like the ice bucket challenge.  Here is more info:
CBS Boston wrote: People with a pie tin filled with whipped cream who hit themselves in the face with it. It looks like an old Three Stooges bit re-born. It’s called the Gastroparesis Pie Face Challenge.


Nineteen year old Andrew Belliveau from Lynn invented it because he has it. “Gastroparesis is essentially paralyzation of the stomach meaning you can’t eat, digest or absorb any nutrients whatsoever, and it causes symptoms such as constant nausea, vomiting, bloating and obviously malnutrition,” Andrew explains.

[. . . ]


Right now there’s no cure for gastroparesis, so Andrew is asking people who take the pie face challenge to make a donation to G-Pact, a non-profit that is working to change that.
