I apologize for not posting as much as usual--my family has been going through a health-related crisis and it's been stressful and confusing.  I don't know what to do.  I just hope it works out.

Hi Jeremy,

Thanks so much.  You are very kind. 

BTW, I also noticed something is off with the coding.  The thumbs up "Like" button has disappeared for some reason.  I will try to figure it out later.   I'll be pretty busy the next few days.  Thanks again Jeremy!

A couple of nice reviews:  :happy face
DC Metro Theater Arts wrote:
Review: ‘Lea Michele & Darren Criss – the LM/DC Tour’ at the Kennedy Center

June 4, 2018


Cue the dramatic backdrops because the lights of Broadway were sparkling this past Sunday at the Kennedy Center in DC. Crackling with infectious energy, the newly launched LM/DC Tour with Lea Michele and Darren Criss brought the house down—and audience to its feet—with Broadway showstoppers, Glee classics, and original jams.

Perhaps best known to most for their performances as Rachel Berry and Blaine Anderson on the television series Glee (though Broadway fans will know her from Spring Awakening and him from How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying and Hedwig and the Angry Inch) Lea and Darren opened the show by going down Glee memory lane. Starting with a high-spirited performance of “Broadway Baby” that was worthy of a dance party, followed by a lush version of “Suddenly Seymour,” these beginning duets allowed them to showcase their skills as individual, yet complementary, musicians.

Kicking off the solo sets, Lea wove songs from her two albums with Glee staples and a few stripped-down pop hits that showed off her once-in-a-generation vocal power, range, and adaptability. From her 2014 album Louder, she chose “Cannonball” and “Battlefield” before electrifying the room with powerhouse renditions of “Don’t Rain on My Parade” and “Maybe This Time” that would have made Barbra and Liza proud. But it was her covers of “Edge of Glory” by Lady Gaga and “Glitter in the Air” by P!nk that were the most startlingly resonant. Sharing personal details about her relationships and her struggles with stage fright, these songs unlocked a vulnerability in her performance that was intimate and infinitely relatable. This vulnerability continued into the selections from her 2017 album, Places, first with “Run to You” and then a duet version of “Getaway Car” with Darren. For me, being able to juxtapose the evolving tenor of Lea’s two albums with the connection she forged with the audience during the covers was intensely moving.

Moving from Lea’s glossy poise to Darren’s sauntering inspiration, the evening shifted into a spectacular display of Darren’s musicianship and raw talent. Bouncing from a cover of “Cough Syrup” originally by Young the Giant to a soulfully rocking arrangement of “Hopelessly Devoted” from Grease, Darren more than proved that he thrives with one foot in each of the Broadway and indie-pop worlds. With an unfiltered energy and passion for music, Darren’s intuitive ability to connect with those around him through song (often his) was awe-inspiring. “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Misérables on acoustic guitar moved like a cautionary, heartbreaking folk song and the mash-up of “Brotherhood of Man” from How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and clips from Hedwig and the Angry Inch showcased Darren’s innate ability to recast songs in order to uncover new meanings and perspectives.

But for this Washingtonian—living in a city rich with musical legacy and tradition—the most touching addition was Darren’s arrangement of “Don’t Get Around Much Anymore,” with lyrics by Bob Russell and music by D.C.’s own Duke Ellington. Regardless of whether Darren’s introductory quip about learning the piece “40 minutes ago” was true, he unlocked the improvisational intensity at the heart of Duke’s music by adding several fantastic riffs to make it his own.

Also featuring original works from his EPs Homework and Lost Boys Life, the songs “Going Nowhere” and “Foolish Thing” in particular showcased Darren’s singer-songwriter skills at creating toe-tapping hooks and delightfully creative lyrics. For the StarKid fans out there, he even closed his set with the most soaring version of “The Coolest Girl” that I have ever heard. Featuring Lea on vocals and with Darren accompanying, they once again created a sound that was more than just the sum of its parts.

Much like the brother-sister relationship they speak fondly of throughout the evening, they bring out different sides and strengths of each other’s performances through ribbing, egging on, and friendly intimidation. Darren’s spontaneous, soulful improvisations spur Lea to step out of her musical comfort zone, while Lea’s smooth star power pulls out spine-tinglingly silky lines from Darren. Nowhere was that more evident than in their duet of “This Time,” written by Darren for Lea’s character on the last episode of Glee. Clearly a defining time for them both, it was stirring to see the emotional reflection and connection they found, and how they continue to support and grow in that connection long after the Glee has ended.

And like their time on that formative show, the evening too came to an end with perhaps the most fitting and contrasting close; an unplugged, acoustic version of “To Make You Feel My Love” that was so achingly still and potent, you could hear your heartbeat. Much like the small smile Lea gave looking down as her engagement ring, the LM/DC Tour ended with as much passion as it started with but packed in a whisper. A dazzling evening of laughs, chills, and spellbindingly good music, Lea Michele and Darren Criss in concert are a musical celebration to believe in.

BWW Review: Lea Michele and Darren Criss Rock Kennedy Center

June 4, 2018


Featuring one of the most eclectic set lists I’ve encountered in recent years, Lea Michele and Darren Criss’ - of Glee and Broadway fame - one-night-only concert at the Kennedy Center was nothing short of entertaining and delightful. One of fourteen stops on their first co-headlined national tour, the concert offered a little bit of something to like for every fan group - the Gleeks, the Broadway nerds, fans of their pop albums, and more. Broadway nerd that I am, I would have preferred a few more showtunes, but the duo achieved a rather nice balance all things considered - and each song was performed exceptionally well.

The pair had so much energy that even if you were dragged along to the concert, you’d likely come out appreciating their obvious unabashed excitement over entertaining a big crowd of admirers and singing with each other.

Let's talk about the highlights. Any show that starts off with a number by Stephen Sondheim is all right by me and Darren and Lea certainly delivered a charming rendition of "Broadway Baby" (from Follies) accompanied by their talented four-member band. Two other stellar musical theater duets followed, including Howard Ashman and Alan Menken's "Suddenly Seymour" (Little Shop of Horrors) and "Falling Slowly" (Once: The Musical). The stylistic contrast was striking and emphasized their versatility and chemistry as performers. A later duet on "Getaway Car" (from Lea Michele's second album Places) showcased their versatility even more as this song is firmly situated in the fun, contemporary pop zone.

[. .   . ]

Darren Criss' set featured songs from Glee, his EPs, and other writers he respects. While the songs were very different, they collectively showcased his enormous creativity. Whether he was accompanying himself on piano, guitar, or just standing behind a microphone, his creative talent and appreciation for music - of all kinds - was quite clear. I must say I was quite drawn to his performance style and how he seemed to enjoy every moment. He impressed on "Teenage Dream," but the hit for me was an arrangement of two songs you might not expect. Darren has performed in two very, very different Broadway shows - How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and Hedwig and the Angry Inch - and he managed to seamlessly meld a selection from each (not to be spoiled here) into one number. It was really unique and interesting.

The concert came to a close with two very special duets. The former, "The Coolest Girl," - basically a female audition song for your sassy musical theater beltress - featured Lea Michele on lead vocals and she certainly delivered. Darren accompanied her on piano and provided backup vocals. This number, which Darren wrote after college, provides some strong evidence that he has the chops if he'd like to explore that type of writing further at this stage in his life. The last duet was equally memorable, but in an entirely different way. It won't be spoiled here, but the opportunity to hear the duo sing without the help of amplification in a massive hall was very special. It was particularly welcome at that point because the concert was a little too amplified for my taste and worked against the natural acoustics in the Concert Hall.

However, this is really just a tiny quibble. The concert was a fun and hugely entertaining opportunity for the young and old to hear these talented singers take on a variety of material. If nothing else, the concert attracted a different kind of audience into the Concert Hall, which is always a good thing.
