Fan Experiences During 2016 - Thu Oct 20, 2016 5:24 pm

Another St. Ignatius friend/alum, who did musicals and choir together with Darren.  So sweet to see him reunited with his old friends.

A nice little video by the lovely yanks02, of Darren being gracious and practical--thanking fans for coming and saying he will sign, but that it's not practical to take photos with every individual, especially given the area where the theater is located.

daniellep321 When you’re at @sormusicalcelebrating the end of a long week and notice that Darren Criss is sitting two rows away from you, you work up the nerve to ask for a photo. From #Glee to his own music to seeing him as #Hedwig multiple times (he asked if we ever made out during the audience participation part of the show!), I’ve been a massive fan…and got to speak to him tonight. He was as nice and gracious as could be. Definitely lived up to the ideal. #darrencriss #elsiefest#schoolofrockbroadway

Video of Darren being sweet and giving a supportive message to Women2Women.

Women2Women: On Sunday, I had the opportunity to talk with an incredible gentleman - Darren Criss from Glee and Broadway! He asked me about what I do, and I told him about Women2Women. He was really impressed and wanted to send a video message to everyone that has been a part of W2W and those working on their action plans.


[The purpose of the Women2Women (W2W) International Leadership Program is to identify and engage promising young women leaders (ages 15-19 years) and train them in the areas of leadership development, cultural awareness, conflict resolution and civic engagement.]

Interview with Ralphie Aversa (95.5 PLJ)

Darren Criss On Elsie Fest, Hedwig And Funemployment
September 01, 2016




An article in Huffingtonpost.com.  Something about the article prevented me from copying and pasting it.   He did talk about how the new venue on Cooney Island and scheduling Elsie Fest to fall on the Labor Day weekend (when some folks go out of town) pose a few risks. It is nice that it falls on Monday, which is a day when Broadway performers have off. 

I liked this quote from the Huffingtonpost article: 
Huffingtonpost.com wrote:Darren Criss and Evan Rachel Wood Talk Elsie Fest; Broadway At The Beach

Criss told me last year that his goal with Elsie Fest is to take "the passion of fans and bring them and others together in a contemporary, pop-culture driven way" during a time of "transformation" for musical theater.

By reinforcing this commitment, Criss continues to prove himself beyond his own talent as a performer and the TV heartthrob singing sensation turned Broadway star.  He's convened a team joining the vanguards who are revolutionizing entertainment, creating a modern experience that combines pop culture with the tradition of theater.

This is cute.
People.com wrote:What These Stranger Things Kids Lack in '80s Know-How, They Make Up for with Enthusiasm

Caleb McLaughlin and Gaten Matarazzo may play two characters living in the ‘80s on Stranger Things, but that doesn’t mean they’re well-versed in what was trending that era.

PEOPLE has an exclusive video of the two young stars testing their ‘80s knowledge (or lack thereof) with former Glee star Darren Criss, 29, and as expected, they don’t … know much.

I agree, it's hard to predict if a random group of folks would recognize Darren.   Glee was huge when Darren joined the show in Season 2.  And Glee had plenty of older folks who were fans too (although I think most of its fans were younger people).   Now that I think about it more, it may be that my husband's co-workers were not aware of Glee because they are on the most part, pretty conservative (as well as being older).    I do live in a more conservative suburb (we moved for work/a job), so my frame of reference would be different than if I lived in a more liberal city.    (When I used to live in northern Cal, I would guess that many folks even if they were older, would know of Glee, and possibly recognize Darren on the street.)     Even where I live now, I knew a group of older women who actually had a Glee-viewing night every week.    They are liberal folks.   One of the women actually saw Darren at the Roxy when he first started Glee.     Darren does look pretty different than Blaine, so that may cause him to sneak under the radar when he is out and about.   Ha.  Yes, love the tags #Blaine #Glee:big grin



 
Lin wrote:Definitely not just you! I have no attachment to this play/cast, but the picture made me weirdly emotional anyway and I suspect it's because they do look so alike here!


I agree.  I felt weirdly emotional too, seeing the resemblance and thinking of Darren possibly being in the production (if he was English).

He does look like an older Blaine, doesn't he?  He could have played Blaine's dad, except for the Eurasian comment (since Blaine's mom didn't look Asian).  I didn't even check to see that the tag was missing.  So observant of you, Lin!   Aw "fathersontimes."  

Does anyone recognize this pic.  Is it a recent one or older one? 

Let's speculate!  Maybe an album?  Or a single?   Or maybe music for a musical?

Glee used to be VERY popular when he joined the show, but he looks pretty different from his character, so I don't think he gets recognized that much? A lot of those people who post selfies with him didn't just happen to run into him, they are fans who knew where he was from social media and went looking for him. Though there are definitely always people randomly recognize him on the spot, too. Easily distinguishable when they tag their posts {#}Blaine{/#} {#}Glee{/#} or call him "Blane from Glee".   Razz

Note:  Is it just me, or does anyone see a rough similarity between Darren and Jamie Parker, who plays Harry Potter in The Cursed Child?

Definitely not just you! I have no attachment to this play/cast, but the picture made me weirdly emotional anyway and I suspect it's because they do look so alike here!

...speaking of look-alikes! It's so cute that he always jokes about looking like Blaine.  :love (Oh, I just noticed DCN missed his hashtag - {#}fathersontimes{/#}.)
And of course, I'm very curious what they're working on. :big grin

Full circle moment alert: A Very Potter Musical star Darren Criss saw Harry Potter and the Cursed Child this weekend!
 
Criss, who was best known for his role as Harry Potter in StarKid’s musical before he joined Glee, got to see the first official Potter play at London’s Palace Theater.

He attended the show with two superstars: Ben Affleck and Margot Robbie, who played Batman and Harley Quinn in Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad earlier this year.

The Cursed Child’s official Twitter account released the following photos of Darren Criss, Ben Affleck, and Margot Robbie attending the show over the weekend.

We wonder what Criss in particular thought of the show? He hasn’t said anything about it on Twitter (yet).

With this development, Criss has beaten fellow known-for-playing-Harry-Potter person Dan Radcliffe to seeing The Cursed Child. The original Harry Potter actor recently said that he wouldn’t see it until the mayhem dies down. However, he plans to read the script book on an upcoming vacation.

His co-stars Emma Watson and Rupert Grint have already seen the play.

The Cursed Child opened officially on July 30, the day before the script book was released worldwide.

Those glasses that Darren has been wearing for a while give off a Harry Potter kind of vibe.  :amused

And of course, popularity of a celebrity is connected to the popularity of the product with which the celebrity is most often closely associated (TV show, film, musical, etc).   The cast of The Big Bang are more well known and popular than a less well-known TV show.

I personally also believe that the reputation of a celebrity also contributes to their popularity.  Darren has the reputation of going above and beyond for his fans, making time to take pics and sign autographs even when he is busy, making eye contact (trying to make a connection), asking fans how they are doing (showing he cares), just in general being very kind to others because he is a decent, good person.   Also, I'm sure he also is aware of how important these moments will be to people, how sometimes the memory of these moments can carry various individuals through tough times in their lives.
