Darren Criss Announces That He Is To Play Intimate Concert In London

March 29, 2018

After years of waiting, UK fans of American Crime Story star Darren Criss were rewarded today when the singer announced that he would be playing a concert in London on April 20.

It has been over six years since Criss played his last concert in London, and this new concert sounds beautiful. The concert in conjunction with Church Keys will be a pared back concert, with a string quartet, and will be held at London’s St Pancras Church, which is becoming a popular venue for small and intimate concerts.

Criss announced the concert this morning via his twitter account, in a video where Criss shows off his impeccable English accent. Tickets for the gig will go on pre-sale on
Tuesday April 3 at 10am BST, fans can sign up for the pre-sale code here.  General Sale goes live at 10am BST on Wednesday April 4.

Tickets for the concert are priced at £25 for general admission, £80 for Meet and Greet, and £200 for Meet and Greet and a Post Show event. There is no doubt that this will be a sell out concert given Criss’ popularity and the size of the venue.

It is fantastic news that Criss is finally returning to perform in London, and we can all hold out hope that maybe one day we can see him on the West End stage

This is interesting, from the Hollywood Reporter. 
The Hollywood Reporter wrote:
'Y: The Last Man' on FX: Who Should Play Yorick?

April 05, 2018

In making an official pilot order for Y: The Last Man, FX has taken a crucial step in bringing one of the most beloved comic books of the new millennium to life. Based on the Vertigo Comics series from Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra, Y focuses on the titular Yorick Brown, an aspiring escape artist who improbably survives an apocalyptic event that claims the life of every male mammal on Earth — every one except for Yorick and his pet monkey, Ampersand, that is.

Beginning with that hook of a premise, Yorick embarks on a global trek alongside the deadly Agent 355 and the brilliant Dr. Allison Mann, encountering new allies and dangerous enemies along the way. Their goal: to understand the nature of their present doomsday scenario, and hopefully steer humanity away from the brink of extinction in the process — and perhaps find Yorick's fiance, trapped on the other side of the world, as well.

Given the scope of the series and the roster of memorable characters, Y: The Last Man (which is set to move forward with American Gods' Michael Green and Jessica Jones' Aida Mashaka Croal as co-showrunners) has a big order to fill in the casting department — and it all begins with the last man himself. As the pilot begins to cast its leads, here are some of the actors we are humbly putting forward as contenders to fill out Yorick's considerable shoes … or straitjacket, as it were.

Darren Criss: Hot off a mesmerizing turn as serial killer Andrew Cunanan in American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace, Criss is already firmly within the FX family, and is more than capable of expressing the right mix of Yorick's misplaced self-assuredness and frequent self-doubt.

Just a reminder that Darren and Lea are on the Ellen Degeneres show on Monday, April 9.  We can find out hopefully what their mysterious collaboration is.  Some folks are guessing some concerts together or a single together.:happy face


I think I saw on tumblr somewhere that the name of the bar is connected somehow to Mia's grandmother?  I'm not sure, but I thought I saw this somewhere.  I could be wrong about that, though.  But I think there is some background reference for the name.

I hope you can come to LA someday, Jeremy, and when you do, that you have a drink at Darren and Mia's bar and sing along to show tunes.  It sounds like fun.

Darren's career is what I am most interested in (as opposed to all the details about his private life), so I'm not completely sure what he presently calls his home.  But I remember Darren sharing with the media that he calls both NY and Cal his home, and I thought I saw on tumblr somewhere that he has a place in NYC.  I know he has a home in Los Angeles with Mia. 






From dcriss-archive:



If you listen to the short videos in my previous post (dcriss-archive and Darren Criss Army have lots more of those videos) and this video--Darren sounds good!   He really does sound like his singing voice has gotten stronger.  I'm not sure who is the woman's voice we hear singing--if it's Mia or not, but I know Mia has a good voice.

Aw, was Michael Hitchcock there?  :happy face











I came across this post on Gleekto's blog.  Thought I would repost it.  Thanks dreaminglonger2nite and Gleekto!

Follow up with more details from TSG opening night!


More details now that I have more time to post:
-The place seems smaller than I imagined but they have a lot of seating and had no trouble even at its busiest in finding somewhere to sit. Also insanely decorated and gorgeous the amount of detail they put into it. Also very classy. Can’t believe some people actually consider this trashy just cause of the name. Check out the places next door

-the bar is really long with about three bartenders working so it doesn’t take long to get drinks

-the people who play the piano are so incredibly talented and have a repertoire with about every Broadway show, classics like the Beatles and billy Joel, and also top 40. They all know how to switch it up when the crowd seems to disperse a bit.

-Darren seemed to say hi to so many people and was here there and everywhere, usually with Mia by his side. He took tons of pics, including one I know I’m in cause I was at the bar when he took a photo from there of the whole room. I noticed Caleb Foote was there and also Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his husband showed up. I got to say hi in passing but I saw him greet Darren and Mia like close friends with big hugs and I’m so happy people of all celeb status can come and support them.

-Mia was a rockstar. Seriously she looked amazing and was checking on everything, saying hi to all their friends and guests, and also taking time to just have fun and sing along. At one point she was singing and dancing next to us and everyone was just eating it up.

-Darren and Mia walked around completely with one another both inside and right outside the bar greeting people as they came in and hosting spectacularly. I saw them hugging, he kissed her on the cheek, they walked around just like any couple anywhere (hands on backs, arms casually around each other during conversations) and at one point Mia had her arms wrapped around his neck as she rested her head against his while they talked. So sweet heart when they were behind me listening to the music he had his arm around her and then a friend came up and thanked them so much for opening this bar. I wanted to turn around and agree but I didn’t want to intrude on their conversation I was listening in on.

-unfortunately around 12ish I lost track of Darren and I’m pretty sure he left the building (i think cause he had the drama Emmy round table thing he had this morning) and then Mia was around but solo from that point onwards and my dreams of seeing Darren perform at the piano were crushed but I have hope for the many many times I will return

-everyone there was so nice and it reminded me so much of Marie’s Crisis in NYC which is exactly what they were going for. So many couple of all orientations were crowded around the piano belting Grease, Wicked, Rent, Mama Mia, etc. all together. I had wonderful people around me singing to me to each other and to everyone. I felt like I was at a theatre after party like I used to attend in high school and college

-Lulu manned the door later in the night and we went outside to get some air cause the air conditioning was nonexistent. This was right when people had to start waiting in line to get in and because we arrived so early we never got our hand stamped. So we tried to get back in and thankfully she was right there to back us up and stamp our hands to get back inside without waiting in line. She was also crazy and also made sure everything was in order while also dancing around and having a great time.

- I literally cannot believe people are bashing Darren on his bar because if you could’ve seen him in person with Mia, hosting, and from his conversations with people at the bar, including some of them I heard from being near him, you would realize just how proud he is of this endeavor. Their eyes were alight with happiness and they continued to thank everyone for being there over and over again. They frequent Marie’s Crisis in NYC every time they go so why wouldn’t they want something here at home? Theatre people stick together and I am so proud of him and Mia and will continue to return for as long as it’s there. Which by the turnout and feedback will be a very long time heart Haters go away and leave them be.

Generally, I'm not into the artists' private lives but it's fun, when you're in a city, to think "these famous people live here and I may even randomly see them somewhere" :amused

Yes, that's true.  Darren spends so much time flying around to different cities, that I imagine if you hang out at LAX airport, you may run into him.   The bar that he and Mia just opened is only one block from the Pantages Theatre too.  If you like to see the shows at the Pantages, you could walk over to their bar.
