I had a great time at the concert Sunday! It was surreal seeing Darren live in person after all these years of obsessively watching his videos on YouTube. He’s tiny in person! He was barely taller than Lea with her heels off lol.

Darren and Lea had great chemistry together. Lea had an interesting vibe on stage, she comes across as more shy than I expected. And her voice! She had the audience in the palm of her hands with her vocals. Her DROMP got a standing ovation and it was great to hear her sing the Coolest Girl as I remember Darren having that on his wishlist years ago.

My favorite duet of theirs was surprisingly This Time. I spoiled myself on the set list, and didn’t think that song would sound good as a duet live, but it really surprised me how good it was.

I was really happy for the most part with the songs Darren chose for his set list. My friend who is more of a Lea fan that I went with and didn’t know much about Darren’s music said Darren has a lot of stage presence and knows how to work a crowd. He also got a standing ovation for Teenage Dream. Darren also told a really funny story about one time he had a layover in Charlotte and got to go to the members only airport lounge cause the person in charge recognized him from Glee lol. Oh, and he also messed up the lyrics to I Don’t Mind multiple times and had to start over twice lol. To be fair, I was singing along and messed up the lyrics too lol.

My friend and I both agreed the encore was the best part of the night. Just so beautiful. We tried waiting for Darren near their tour bus after the show to see if he would come out, but it appears he left to go for dinner and drinks with Lea and the crew.

I'll also post this in the Charity thread, since this is a concert benefiting the Dramatists Guild Foundation.



From Darren Criss Army:



todaytix TodayTix is turning 5! To celebrate 5 years of broadening access to theater, we wanted to give back. So: we’re producing a concert to benefit @DGFound’s New Voices program, hosted by @darrencriss and featuring some of our fave stars, like @_matthew.morrison_, @arianadebose, @markballas, and more. Get a ticket at https://www.todaytix.com/x/nyc/shows/12764-todaytix-live so you can help us foster the next generation of artists while celebrating the talent of today.

Go here for tickets:  https://www.todaytix.com/x/nyc/shows/12764-todaytix-live









Darren is hosting and Matthew Morrison will be performing at Today Tix's Dramatists Guild Foundation Benefit Concert.  I wonder if this is the project that Benjamin Rauhala will be working with Darren.

Darren Criss, Matthew Morrison, Ethan Slater, and More Will Lead TodayTix's Dramatists Guild Foundation Benefit Concert

Sept 12, 2018

TodayTix will celebrate its five-year anniversary with a concert to benefit Dramatists Guild Foundation (DGF) New Voices program, on September 24th at 7:30pm at National Sawdust in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

The evening will bring together the elements that have helped bring TodayTix to its five-year anniversary -- the artists, the performances and the audiences. Hosted by Darren Criss ("The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story," "Hedwig and the Angry Inch"), the concert will feature stripped down musical sessions, in an intimate setting, by Mark Ballas (currently starring in "Kinky Boots" on Broadway, "Dancing with the Stars") with his wife and other half of music duo Alexander Jean, BC Jean, Erich Bergen ("Madam Secretary"), Ariana DeBose (Tony Nominee, "The Donna Summer Musical"), Kathryn Gallagher (Lifetime's "You," "Spring Awakening"), Lesli Margherita (Olivier Award winner), Matthew Morrison (Tony and Emmy Nominee) and Ethan Slater (Tony Nominee, "SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical"). Benjamin Rauhala will serve as Music Director.

[ . . . ]

The concert will kick off at 7:30pm EST at National Sawdust, a dynamic home for artists and new music in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Tickets are available now exclusively on the TodayTix app and website. General Admission tickets are $55 for standing room or $149 for VIP Lounge tickets, which includes access to the reserved VIP Lounge, a pre-concert cocktail reception and autographed commemorative poster from the show's cast.

Profits from ticket sales will directly benefit DGF's New Voices program. In alignment with TodayTix's mission to make theater more accessible, the New Voices program brings trained teaching artists into classrooms, where they lead students in the collaborative creation of their own plays. This empowers students to discover the power of their own voices, helping theater to thrive for years to come.

I've only seen your post today, Tash, but . . . TASH! I'm so happy to hear that you were able to attend an LMDC Tour concert!!  applause

Having both of them performing together and being able to enjoy their bantering on stage is really a special treat, and I'm glad you were there to witness it!  Thanks for sharing your experiences with us. The airport story is cute, and it must have been fun to hear Darren tell about how he got to go into the members only lounge (although I can't imagine how he's NOT a member already with all of the flying he does!).  

I think their acoustic encore is such a beautiful thing, and I'm glad you thought so too.  Aw, I'm sorry to hear that you didn't get to catch Darren at his tour bus. There's always next time! 

It looks like Darren doesn't want to get bored during the only 10 spare minutes he has on the day of the Emmy Awards ( Wink ), so he and Lea are planning to share their premiere video for the UK/Ireland Tour tomorrow!

Announcement will be live here at:
- 11 AM BST (shouldn’t it be BDT?)
- 6 AM EDT

It looks like it is via his facebook. I didn't include the link because I get a broken link when I clicked on the link in Darren Criss Army's and d-criss-news' posts.  Perhaps you have to be on facebook to access it?  :talking

I'm hoping you get great seats!  :fingers crossed

Thanks so much for posting this info, Lilikoiluv!  Hope that dusty and Lin can go!

haha.  I like your humor!    :amused I was thinking the same thing, that tomorrow is such a busy day for him, but maybe he wanted to make it just a little more exciting and busy by taking some time to make this UK/Ireland concert announcement!  :big grin

Oh --I just put my big foot in my mouth!

Of course, I hope you can go too, Jeremy!!!  :hug   I just assumed that since you visit this little forum on a pretty regular basis, that you would let us know if you could make it to one of the concerts in Europe.  Sorry that I didn't make that clear!   :I made a mistake Embarassed
