Elsie Fest 2017 - Tue Aug 01, 2017 3:25 pm

I'm late to the party, but lots of Elsie Fest info today, as was expected. 

So as was hinted by The Elvis Duran Show:   Lea and Alan Cumming are headlining (along with Darren), with Ingrid Michaelson and Norm Lewis as guest stars.  Elvis Duran will be hosting.  Aw, I remember Darren talking before about how Ingrid Michaelson was a large influence to him, musically.  And Norm Lewis (gosh, his voice is gorgeous) is a respected Broadway star.  He also performed in The Little Mermaid concert at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles with Darren.  :happy face  Info about the hours:  Doors open at: 5:00 PM.  Show: 6:00 PM (ends at 10:00 PM).   Source:  http://smarturl.it/elsie   The TodayTix site says the concert running time is 5 hours.  https://www.todaytix.com/shows/nyc/6603-elsie-fest

This is a change, that for  this year Elsie Fest, it's all General Audience.  I think that is good news for most fans, because it keeps tickets affordable.  Looks like the tickets ranges from $59.99 (General Admission) to  $84.99 (GA with Bleacher Seat).  :happy face

From Darren Criss Army:



Elvis Duran is hosting Elsie Fest.  :happy face  Whoa, if Alan Cumming does perform--that is big!  And how nice to have Lea perform (if either of those two things happen).
Elvis Duran Show wrote:
Darren Criss' Acoustic "I Dreamed A Dream" Will Move You To Tears

In honor of the Elsie Fest 2017 announcement, Darren Criss took to YouTube to share an incredibly touching, acoustic version of the popular Les Misérables ballad, “I Dreamed A Dream.”

The third annual Elsie Fest will be held October 8th at Central Park’s Summerstage and will be hosted by Elvis Duran! Tickets will be available for pre-sale on August 1st at elsiefest.com.

Rumor has it that Lea Michele and Alan Cumming are on the bill, but no official lineup announcements have been made.

Check out Darren's "I Dreamed A Dream" below, but get your tissues ready first!









Am Glad that a part of the proceeds will benefit BroadwayCares/Equity Fights AIDS.  :happy face

Darren Criss Announces Elsie Fest 2017 With Acoustic 'I Dreamed a Dream'

July 26, 2017

The third annual festival, which celebrates music from stage and screen, will be held on October 8.

In honor of this year’s Elsie Fest announcement, Darren Criss took to YouTube to share his version of Les Miserables’ “I Dreamed a Dream.” The musical theatre-centric festival will be held October 8 at Summerstage in Central Park.

The festival is a celebration of music from both stage and screen; a portion of the proceeds will benefit BroadwayCares/Equity Fights AIDS. Elsie Fest was co-created and produced by Criss, Ricky Rollins, and Jordan Roth.

Performers from the past two incarnations of Elsie Fest included Laura Osnes, Leslie Odom Jr., Aaron Tveit, Tituss Burgess, Todrick Hall, Lena Hall, Jason Robert Brown, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, and Cynthia Erivo. The lineup for this year will be announced at a later date.

Elsie Fest 2017 - Wed Jul 26, 2017 11:03 am

haha.  I guess I was totally wrong when I guessed Darren's big announcement today was about his solo album/EP.  It was about Elsie Fest 2017!  I think what threw me off was that in previous years, he didn't color his Elsie Fest announcement in so much mystery, plus he had mentioned he was going to release his solo album this year (and then he updated his pics on his social media and Youtube too).  

Anyway, I think it still is a very good possibility that Darren will release his album in 2017.  :fingers crossed :fingers crossed :fingers crossed



Really nice that Elsie Fest 2017 is being held in Central Park!   That's very cool, and much more central a location than last year in Brooklyn (although I heard the shade and the individual chairs were very nice, that the Brooklyn site was a nice venue).  Central Park means less traveling for many peeps already in NYC. thumbs up

# Repost @elsiefest - ‪Wishing an awesome birthday to this rockstar, #ElsieFest co-creator, Mr. #darrencriss!  8)   http://ift.tt/2kgbOQb
Broadway Con info.  :happy face



So an update:  Darren is no longer scheduled to appear tonight (Friday) at BroadwayCon.

I was reading Gleekto's blog (link: http://gleekto.tumblr.com/post/156449982865), and an anon suggested that the reason why Darren was no longer scheduled to appear tonight at BroadwayCon was because of an issue involving Actor's Equity.  Gleekto linked to an article in the NY Times about a dispute between the BroadwayCon organizers and the Actors' Equity.  

The first NY Times article (dated January 22):  https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/22/arts/broadwaycon-faces-dispute-with-actors-equity-association.html

Last year, Actors' Equity Association and BroadwayCon organizers agreed upon a contract about payment terms for future conventions.  According to Actors' Equity, at the time of this first article (article dated January 22), they felt BroadwayCon organizers were not honoring the contract.   According to this article:

NY Times wrote:
January 22, 2017

Part of the dispute centers on roughly two hours of performance time in two events on the convention’s main stage, involving 10 Actors’ Equity performers.



The link for the second NY Times article (dated January 24) is:  https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/24/theater/broadwaycon-resolves-dispute-with-actors-equity-association.html?_r=1


So the dispute between the Actors' Equity Association and the organizers of BroadwayCon was resolved on Monday.  However, this article states: 

NY Times wrote:
January 24, 2017

However, two sessions during the weekend, in which other performers were to sing show tunes and songs from jukebox musicals, will be altered. The events would have required a separate contract and pushed the convention past its budget for this year, Melissa Anelli, one of BroadwayCon’s lead organizers, said.


The article goes on to say: 
NY Times wrote:The actors scheduled to sing will largely be replaced by songwriters and composers, and the nature of the events is still being finalized. But those actors may still appear in other sessions. For instance, Darren Criss (“Hedwig and the Angry Inch”) is to appear on a panel and as part of a theater-oriented game show.


It makes sense that this is the most likely the explanation of why Darren was no longer scheduled to appear in tonight's (Friday night's) event at BroadwayCon.  These kinds of disputes between parties happen, and they are beyond Darren's control.

Darren is still scheduled to appear on Saturday morning as a contestant in the "BroadwayCon Feud" game, and on Saturday 12 noon as a moderator of the Speech & Debate panel/preview.  :happy face


This was captured by DarrenCrissArmy:

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

Darren's right eye looks a bit tired.   I hope he is rested before he begins Hedwig in SF.  Can't believe Hedwig will be starting in about 1.5 weeks!
From dailydarrennews:

Ok. This is interesting.  Darren does not normally tease something in this way, saying he's looking for a job.

Elsie Fest 2016 - Mon Sep 12, 2016 1:30 am

A nice review of Elsie Fest from Emertainment Monthly (Emerson College).  From dailydarrennews

Celebrqting the Cabaret of Life at Elsie Fest 2016


What happens when hundreds of passionate theater geeks join together to cheer on some of the best talent Broadway has to offer? One amazing festival celebrating music, movies, TV, and the enthusiasm and willingness to discover something new. This festival, created by Darren Criss– best known for his role as Blaine Anderson on Glee, is called Elsie Fest.


On Labor Day of 2016, the show went on for the second year in a row. This time the venue was the Ford Amphitheater at Coney Island, which accommodated the musical crowd well with seats in every section and a couple vending areas near the front and back of the theater.

[. . . ]

The day kicked off about an hour late because the VIP meet and greets were taking longer than anticipated, but that fact alone is pretty telling about the kind of people running and performing in the festival; each wanting and willing to take the time to connect with their fans before the show.

[. . . ]


Throughout the lineup, Criss would pop up to introduce an act or join in for a song. A huge Stranger Things fan, Criss asked two of the show’s stars Caleb McLaughlin and Gaten Matarazzo to join in the fun with a set of their own, each boy a Broadway performer in his own right (McLaughlin from The Lion King and Matarazzo from Les Miserables). They delighted the crowd with their talent and charm.


Criss also joined Todrick Hall for one of the less dance-filled numbers in his upbeat set. The two sang Hall’s song “Color” which they had quickly rehearsed in the stairwell beforehand, not that anyone could tell with how beautifully they sounded.


Criss brought the night to a close with a set that blew the crowd away. Personal highlights would be the performance of “Journey to the Past” from Anastasia with Liz Calloway, the original singing voice of Anya, and Criss’ performance of “Drive it Like You Stole it” which encouraged the crowd to see John Carney’s amazing movie, Sing Street. Criss clearly is an enthusiastic fanboy who wants to spread the word about some of the people and media he loves most.


It would be easy to go on and on about all the performances at this years Elsie Fest, but luckily there will be plenty of recordings for people to watch and hear the immense talent of every performer and even the collective talent of the crowd. A small stage set up in the back of the venue was set up to allow for more talented Broadway stars to lead huge harmonious sing-a-longs between sets. Criss sang “Cabaret” at the start of the final set of Elsie Fest 2016 to remind everyone why the festival got its name in the first place:


“I think of Elsie to this very day.


I’d remember how’d she turn to me and say:


“What good is sitting all alone in your room?


Come hear the music play.


Life is a Cabaret, old chum,


Come to the Cabaret.”


Indeed, Elsie Fest has become the ultimate Cabaret to hear the music play. The theater community is a happier and more connected place because of it.

I watched this video of Darren meeting and greeting his fans at Elsie Fest.  And he hugged every single one of his fans.  It's something that Darren's fans take for granted, but it's not something that all celebrities do, even at Meet and Greets.  Last year at Elsie Fest, I saw some of the other stars shake hands with fans at their Meet and Greets, which is perfectly fine too (of course!), but Darren just prefers hugs (and his fans are happy with that decision, in fact some of them snuck in an extra hug or two and Darren kindly went along).   At around Point 4:15, there is an especially cute moment, with Darren bear-hugging a fan.   I have a feeling that he knew the fan.   Very sweet.

Nice video by Playbill.   The crowd looks large.  applause  Darren talks about loving the diversity of music and performers, from Todrick twerking on stage ( :big grin) to Jason Robert Brown, the composer, performing his songs.   Tituss talks about the joy of communing with other musical theater nerds, and Megan talks about how Elsie is the start of something big.  


The second annual Elsie Fest featured Darren Criss, Lena Hall, Megan Hilty, Tituss Burgess, Jason Robert Brown, Corey Cott, Benj Pasek & Justin Paul and a special guest performance by Color Purple Tony winner Cynthia Erivo.


The day-long outing celebrating show tunes is modeled on the popular Coachella Festival and was the brainchild of Criss, talent manager Ricky Rollins and Broadway producer/Jujamcyn Theaters president Jordan Roth. In this highlight reel of the event (held at Coney Island’s Ford Amphitheater) Criss, Hilty and Burgess give a rundown of the festivities. | Playbill.com

Nice story from a photographer who was assigned to cover Elsie Fest.
Topics tagged under elsiefest on Darren Criss Fan Community - Page 2 Tumblr_od2eh1paqY1uetdyxo1_400
Debra L. Rothenberg Photography: There are some days that I wish I said “no” to a photo assignment. Today started as one of those days. I wanted to stay home in the morning and spend it with my husband and the boys, and spend with afternoon with 2 friends- one I haven’t seen in what feels like a bazillion years since she moved to the other coast.
My assignment was the Elsie Festival in Coney Island- a whole day of singers and I only heard of one- Darren Criss from Glee.
These are days that surprise me and I ended up having an amazing time. The talent was thru the roof today. There were “holy sh*t” moments constantly.
And as i was leaving, I got to see Coney Island In all its glory with the sun setting on the boardwalk.
I lived at the jersey shore for 17 years and Asbury park feels like a second home but I have to admit- there is something about Coney Island that makes me happy and makes me feel good.

I don't like to post videos of Darren's song performances at formal concerts like the ones he did for the concert halls (the Broadway Today concerts), due to copyright issues.   But Else Fest being an informal music festival that is organized by Darren himself, I feel comfortable posting these great videos of of Darren's song performances at Elsie Fest 2016.  :happy face


From dailydarrennews:

I thought he sounded really good on Hopelessly Devoted to You.  Ahh, it made me feel nostalgic about the time I watched him sing it as Blaine.
