:fingers crossed Here's hoping for an official Elsie Fest 2018 announcement soon.  :fingers crossed

jenndesq on tumblr got an October 7th listing when she googled it, for what it's worth. That would be the same timeframe as last year. I would post her screenshot of the info, but I don't know how to do that on my kindle.  I don't know
Here's a link to her post: http://jenndesq.tumblr.com/post/176819043082/fwiw
Yay! At least that worked. lol.

I couldn't find any listing for it on the Summerstage site right now. It could be added to the schedule once the official announcement is made though. (IIRC, they listed it a bit early on the Summerstage site last year, so I thought I'd check.) Central Park is such a convenient and great location. I hope they get to have it there again, or someplace just as great and convenient.

Hopefully, Darren will announce some details soon.  :fingers crossed 


Yes, I hope he continues to have Elsie Fest in Central Park, such a great location!  I was impressed he got that location last year!

Two-time Emmy nominee and Broadway alum Darren Criss has recruited a talent-packed group of stars to take part in the 2018 edition of his outdoor musical celebration Elsie Fest.

The lineup of 2018 Elsie Fest performers will include two-time Tony winner Sutton Foster (Younger, Sweet Charity), three-time Tony nominee Joshua Henry (Carousel) and Criss’ fellow Glee alum Alex Newell (Once On This Island). They’ll be joined Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright and Tony nominee Jodi Benson (Crazy for You, The Little Mermaid).

Cast members from the upcoming Broadway musical comedy The Prom and the off-Broadway musical Be More Chill and will also offer up performances, with a number to be performed from the movie musical Anna and the Apocalypse. Famed West Village piano bar Marie’s Crisis will return to lead festival-wide singalongs.

Created by Criss, Elsie Fest is a one-day outdoor music festival that celebrates stars and songs from the stage and screen, giving festival-goers a unique experience to enjoy their favorite musicals. Additional performers and guests will be announced at a later time.

I just wanted to include this because of how the article referred to Darren.  :happy face   I guess the off-Broadway show Be More Chill is sold out!    Also, it looks like some other folks/friends have signed on as Producers.  Executive Producers include Eleni Gianulis, Dr. Sidney J. Stern, with Associate Producers Jeff Jernigan of Kraft-Engel Management and Corey Lubowich.  And that list of previous performers at Elsie Fest is pretty impressive!

Darren Criss on Bringing Broadway and Pop Culture Together for Elsie Fest & Scratching His 'Itchiest Itch': Writing for Musical Theater

Oct 3, 2018

Broadway alum Darren Criss is one busy man. Not only did he just win an Emmy for The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story and is about to launch a tour of the West Coast with former Glee co-star and fellow Broadway alum Lea Michele, but he is also getting ready to put on the fourth edition of his acclaimed outdoor musical theater festival Elsie Fest. While appearing on the October 2 episode of Broadway.com’s daily live Facebook news show #LiveAtFive, Criss talked about his passion for Elsie Fest, his love of Broadway and his plans for what’s next.

Criss, who has appeared on Broadway in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and Hedwig and the Angry Inch, created Elsie Fest in 2015 as a way to showcase Broadway stars in a music-festival format. Over the years, the outdoor concert has turned into a staple Broadway event, leaving Criss even more excited for this year’s star-packed edition. “We’re putting on this concert to celebrate this confluence of pop culture and musical theater and where they meet—and it’s so cool,” he said. “I was doing press for Elsie [Fest] and this guy was like, 'I’m going to be honest with you, I didn’t know Sutton Foster could sing,’ and I was like, 'WHAT?’ I love bringing these different worlds together.”

[ . . .]

Since Criss is currently preparing for Elsie Fest’s big night on October 7, we couldn’t help but ask about when we’ll see him on Broadway next. “Broadway is always the goal,” he said. “I think the itch that has become the most itchy—the itchiest itch that has grown more itchy over the years—is that I have to write another musical, I have to. It’s probably my favorite form of writing. That has to happen, and it will happen. It just takes some time. Coming to you on Broadway in five to 10 years from now.”

While you wait for Criss to make his return to musical writing, which we first got a glimpse of with A Very Potter Musical and A Very Potter Sequel, be sure to get your tickets for Elsie Fest at Central Park’s Summerstage on October 7.

So sorry--it's been a stressful, hectic week, so I needed some time to recharge.  Honestly, I felt so exhausted after Saturday.  And we had a relative celebrate her 90th birthday at her BD party, where relatives flew from other states to attend.  Anyway, sorry for my short absence.

I watched some of the fan videos on twitter--such a ray of sunshine to see these performers and to listen to their beautiful voices.  Thank you for this, Darren, I really needed something to lift my tired soul.  :thank you 



All videos I'm posting are via Jennedesq's tumblr.  Thank you, Jennedesq--we are grateful (once again!)!!.  Link to her tumblr:  http://jenndesq.tumblr.com/

Ohhh--Rufus Wainwright's words at the beginning almost made me cry--to know that he wrote a song, and Darren and he made a video--for the purpose of getting out the vote, because making your voice heard through the power of your vote is so, so important to women specifically and just to so many people from all walks of life in general.  Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.  :cry heart heart heart heart heart And Rufus's voice is so gorgeous and emotional.  So beautiful.  And such nice harmonies with Darren!  I love how Rufus and Darren thank each other--such sweet souls.   And this is my favorite version of "Tomorrow."  (And such a fitting song for this point of time in my country--we just need to hold onto hope that some day, tomorrow will be a better day.)

From Darren Criss Army:

A couple of cute photos.  :happy face  He does look a little thinner.  Maybe because he's running around so much.   (He does have a lot of reasons to celebrate, not to mention reasons why he's been so busy.) :very happy

darrencriss The dude just knows how to take pictures. And in less than 20 seconds, btw. @nathanjohnsonny captured me just barely hanging on- right as @elsiefest 2018 was just starting. Of course reppin @vulfpeck












I enjoy reading the tags that ipwarn places on her posts on her tumblr.  You should check out her Zachary Levi tags.  :amused   I didn't realize it until I went through ipwarn's posts of Darren and Zachary Levi, but Zachary and Darren both did Operation Smile. Link to ipwarn's tumblr:   http://ipwarn.tumblr.com/tagged/Zachary+Levi

Rufus Wainwright's song, "Sword of Damocles"




From Darren Criss Army:

The famed, ancient expression “Sword of Damocles” is a parable of impending doom of and to those in positions of power. This timeless tale points out the hard fact that with great power, comes great responsibility, and for all concerned, great danger. VOTE. 

Available now exclusively on Bandcamp. A video, starring Darren Criss, will accompany the song coming soon. A portion of the proceeds will benefit voter registration efforts.
Rufus premiered the song with Darren at Elsie Fest on October 7th.








Rufus Wainwright wrote:I debuted a new song, “Sword of Damocles,” tonight on The Late Late Show with James Corden. This is my artistic response to what I see currently transpiring within the American government and how its collapse is affecting every aspect of existence for us all. With the Midterm Elections around the corner, it’s important for everyone to take a stand and contribute in some way – whether it’s bringing awareness to issues in your community, protesting/demonstrating, watching the news to formulate your own opinions, creating, yelling – it’s all hands on deck.
