Elsie Fest 2016 - Sun Sep 04, 2016 12:36 pm

I am concerned about the weather for today and tomorrow.   Mayor Bill de Blasio has not cancelled parades for Monday, but he warned that coastal areas may have flooding.   I'm sure Darren and the organizers are keeping a close eye on updates by weather sites and government officials, and that Darren will communicate via his own, as well as the Elsie Fest, twitter and Facebook accounts.   


Today Tix is having great deals, including $29 tickets.

Megan Hilty, Tituss Burgess, Darren Criss Lead Second Annual Elsie Fest

Broadway’s biggest and brightest will join together Monday at the Ford Amphitheater at the Coney Island Boardwalk for the second annual "Elsie Fest," a one-day outdoor music festival celebrating showtunes from stage and screen.

NBC's "Smash" star Megan Hilty will headline the event, joined by "The UnBreakable Kimmy Schmidt" star Tituss Burgess and Golden Globe-nominated actress Evan Rachel Wood with musician Zach Villa, performing as their band Rebel and a Basket Case.

Tony winner Lena Hall and Criss, both heading out on tour in "Hedwig and the Angry," will perform as well, with SiriusXM Radio host Julie James and "Newsies" star Corey Cott.

YouTube superstar Todrick Hall will take the stage. The 31-year-old stage vet will return to Broadway this December as Lola in "Kinky Boots."

Tony-winning composers Jason Robert Brown ("The Bridges of Madison County") and the Tony-nominated team of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul ("Dear Evan Hansen") are on the roster as well.

Cynthia Erivo, a 2016 Tony winner for her role in "The Color Purple," will perform as a special guest.

The day kicks off at 1 p.m. and goes throughout the evening. In addition to the live sets, attendees will be offered exclusive meet and greet packages with their favorite stars, concert merchandise and a beer garden from the famed West Village piano bar Marie's Crisis.

The festival, which premiered last year at the JBL Live at Pier 97, is the brainchild of "Glee" alum Darren Criss, Broadway producer Jordan Roth and talent manager Ricky Rollins.

Criss had said he came out with the idea of the festival while at Coachella, thinking "let's do this for showtunes."

"Musical theater has been going through a wonderful shift in the past few years. Why not shake up people’s ideas of where to watch the performers they love?" the 29-year-old actor said.

A portion of the proceeeds will go to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

From dailydarrennews:


An interview which shows just how active Darren likes to keep himself.  We also learn that he was vegan at one point while he was performing Hedwig on Broadway, to stay slim.   And he likes to do karaoke in Korea-town.   No surprise.  What a treat for the other lucky participants who get to listen to him!  Here is an excerpt.  Click on title (below), or link below the excerpt to read the entire article.

New York Post wrote:Darren Criss' perfect night out -- a Koreatown karaoke bar

Darren Criss became a heartthrob when he starred on Fox’s “Glee,” but since then the actor has built a thriving music and Broadway career, appearing onstage in “How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” and “Hedwig and the Angry Inch.” The 29-year-old divides his time between downtown New York and LA, and is about to embark on a multicity tour of “Hedwig.” On Monday, he’ll perform at Elsie Fest, a music festival at the Coney Island Amphitheater. The actor tells The Post’s JOHNNY OLEKSINSKI how he likes to spend his free time in NYC.

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.

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.

An article about Elsie Fest 2016 in AXS.

AXS.com wrote:Labor Day entertainment: Darren Criss and Elsie Fest make Coney Island encore

New York’s outdoor music festival for show tunes, Elsie Fest, returns for its second year in a row on Labor Day, Monday Sept. 5, at historic Coney Island. The all-day entertainment extravaganza debuted last year along the Hudson River at Pier 97. This year, Elsie Fest attendees can spend the day soaking up the sun and the sand along the Boardwalk at Coney Island and catch the show which starts at 1 p.m. and runs until 10 p.m. in the Ford Amphitheatre. Festival tickets, including VIP tickets, premiere seating options and Meet and Greet packages are currently on sale.
 
Elsie Fest is the brainchild of Broadway and TV star Darren Criss (“Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” “Glee”), Jordan Roth, and Ricky Rollins who wanted to create an outlet for Broadway enthusiasts to gather and see some of their favorite artists from the stage and screen perform live in an all-day outdoor setting. Last year’s critically-acclaimed festival was a huge success. This year, Criss will be joined by Tituss Burgess (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”), Megan Hilty (“Wicked,” “Smash”), Tony Award winners Lena Hall (“Hedwig and the Angry Inch”) and Jason Robert Brown (“The Bridges of Madison County”), Corey Cott (“Newsies”), indie band Rebel and a Basketcase (featuring Evan Rachel Wood).

Darren Criss is a proud University of Michigan theater grad and Tony-nominated fellow U of M alums Pasek and Paul (“A Christmas Story, the Musical”) will also perform, along with Julie James and Tony Award-winning special guest Cynthia Erivo (“The Color Purple”). Elsie Fest has also been known to turn out surprise guests. So, who knows who else might pop in to sing a song or two?

Broadway.com praised Darren Criss and last year’s festival calling the “Harry Potter” YouTube spoof star “clearly the next generation of stage star” and deemed Elsie Fest 2015 “easily the coolest Broadway event of the year.” That’s a pretty impressive assessment for a first-time launch.

The remarkable thing about Elsie Fest is that it takes a Broadway-style entertainment experience to a whole new level. It presents an outdoor concert festival vibe (which Criss previously dubbed Coachella for show tunes) in a kickin’ atmosphere with singalongs at Marie’s Beer Garden in between sets and of course, there will be food and drink galore.

Darren Criss alone is a dynamic, larger-than-life live performer who oozes passion for theater, show tunes and music in general. He is the only “Glee” cast member to have contributed original songs written specifically for the series one of which, “This Time,” earned him his first Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics. Put him together with the other huge names on this year’s Elsie Fest performer lineup and lucky attendees are in for an explosive, multi-faceted musical treat.

Elsie Fest 2016 is sponsored by iHeart Radio, LiveNation, Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, and Jujamcyn Theaters. Ticket prices range from $30 - $60 each (before fees) for Gallery Seating, $30-$85 each (before fees) for Promenade Seating and $85-$125 each (before fees) for Orchestra Seating. VIP, Premium Seating and Meet and Greet Packages are also available at varying prices. Consult the Elsie Fest website for more information.
