From DarrenCrissArmy:

This was cute.  She took a pic with him after having seen him on Eastwick, and she has remained a fan (of course!).  I really enjoy reading about his long-time fans, especially the ones who knew him before Glee (like Lilikoiluv!).

This is me with the super talented Darren Criss six years ago at the Orpheum Theatre in San Francisco. It was a pleasure to see him again and let him know how happy I am to have seen his success through the years. And, I had so much fun rapping for him!

# Repost superha   PART 1: I met #darrencriss six years ago at the Orpheum Theatre in San Francisco and he remembered tonight! Oh, and I also busted out some veggie raps for him (not to be confused with veggie wraps). He’s so cool and insanely talented. I’m really happy for him and all his hard earned success. #hedwig #glee #eastwick #averypottermusical #darrencriss P.S. Thanks, Dad, Mom, and Dan for watching the Ha Dogs tonight!

bellamyyoung THANK YOU @darrencriss !! My whole neighborhood & I came to see you in #Hedwig last night, & you CRUSHED it. It was exactly what we all needed. I really can’t thank you enough. Everybody, go see this performance! He’s an ANIMAL!! You will be reborn right along with him. #ArtHeals #AllWeveGotIsLove Hope today is beautiful to each of you!

Note:  Bellamy Young is on Scandal.
Looking at some tweets about the show, it struck me how seeing Hedwig and the Angry Inch has helped folks in terms of finding hope and some light, which is so important because of the uncertainty and anxiety felt by so many subsequent to the election.   This show is more inspirational than ever, given what has just happened in the U.S..   I'm glad Darren, through his performance and through his kind words at stage door, has helped lift the spirit of others.

So many stellar reviews! I am just beside myself with happiness for Darren and the rest of the cast and crew!  I like that several of the reviews also praised Arianne Phillips, Mike Potter, the set designer, etc. 

I hope this leads to some wonderful opportunities for Darren.  The happiness, satisfaction, and appreciation Darren exudes at the cutrain call is such a beautiful sight. I hope he gets to originate and workshop a role toward a Broadway run. A straight darmatic play would be fantastic. Darren would relish the challenge and camaraderie of the entire process. Then he could be nominated for and win a Tony award. But I digress. lol


FYI, Sara Rue worked on "Eastwick" with Darren.  I've always thought that they were friends prior to that too, like at college, but I may be mistaken.  


I'm glad that Chris Mann went to see Darren. He writes his own music as well and was one fo the original Warblers!

'Hedwig And The Angry Inch' Wows At Hollywood Pantages

There is no intermission – just ninety minutes of no holds barred rock music, fabulous drag costumes and wigs, and a gradual stripping down to Hedwig's most vulnerable self. In this touring production, led by Darren Criss, who played the role for five weeks on Broadway and co-starring Lena Hall, who won a 2014 Tony in her role, we hurtle toward the conclusion with no chance to pump the brakes.

Simply put, the show is fantastic. Criss has made a career playing clean-cut guys with a boyish charm, like his breakout role as Blaine Anderson on "Glee." His sterling takes on pop hits like "Teenage Dream" and covers of Disney songs have demonstrated his winning vocal abilities. With Hedwig, Criss kicks through that strait-laced image with all the power his high-heeled gold boots will allow. He shows impressive range – moving from the ballad storytelling of "The Origin of Love" to the raunchy antics of "Sugar Daddy" to the bouncy pop of "Wig in a Box" to the vulnerable ache at the heart of "Wicked Little Town." He kicks, climbs, and sashays his way around the stage, jumping into the audience to gyrate on top of guests.

Watching Criss in the role is like watching a live hurricane take the stage – unstoppable and full of power. He commands your attention from the word go. One minute making you gasp with laughter at a joke unsuitable for print, the next breaking your heart with a tale about a search for love and acceptance. Criss reaches down into new depths to expose Hedwig's soul to us, and it pays off in spades. He is, in a word, mesmerizing – sexy, raunchy, raw, and utterly thrilling to watch.

[. . . ]

"Hedwig and the Angry Inch" is a lot of things – a showcase for its two immensely talented leads, a hell of a good time, and ultimately, a meditation on acceptance, self-love, and what it means to be complete – a reminder that we can't really love until we first learn to wholly love ourselves.  Rock concerts can amp you up and send you out into the night on a cloud of glitter and good vibes – it takes putting one into a Broadway musical to make it an experience that also makes you take stock and perhaps be kinder to those around you, and above all, yourself.

'Hedwig,' Now A Broadway Diva, Is Back In Town At The Pantages

November 4, 2016


While laugh lines wash over us a mile a minute (some pretty funny, many worthy of Vegas lounge act patter), the best part—the defining part—of Hedwig, as they always have been, are the musical numbers. Engaging as he is in Hedwig's ongoing chat with the audience, Criss becomes a hyper-dynamic figure in these great songs. Backed by a four-piece punk band ensemble dubbed The Angry Inch, along with Hall's Yitzhak, Criss irresistibly evokes the kind of restless exuberance that has always been inherent in the performances of punk icons like Iggy Pop and the New York Dolls. Costumed by Arianne Phillips and groomed by Mike Potter, Criss' Hedwig is also totally glam enough for Hollywood.

One might have been forgiven at the end of the last century for hoping that Hedwig was going to nudge American musical theater in a new direction with an expanded musical and thematic range. So far, that's happened sporadically at best, though a few shows like Spring Awakening, Kinky Boots and Hamilton bear traces of their genderqueer theatrical forebear's DNA. Adaptable and renewable as Mitchell and Trask's show has proven to be, at least, we can probably affirm now that we know Hedwig will never die.

heidilou85   Such an amazing night last night. It was so good to see Hedwig again. I wasn't' sure if I was going to wait at the stage door but when I saw that it was only about 50-60 people, I decided to wait.  I'm so glad I did.  Had a decent conversation with my main man, and a hug.  It's so lovely to see how engaged he gets with his fans, and for the first time I experienced it first hand. #hedwigandtheangryinch #darrencriss #lenahall #losangeles





socalmusicguy  Got to meet @darrencriss after his tremendous performance in #Hedwig last night. After bascially an hour and a half monologue to the audience (basically a concert with songs and stories) he still took the time to talk to every single person that waited at the stage door.  That's a good sport.  Got my playbill and poster autographed. Quite a night. Thank you @hollywoodpantagestheatre for yet another great experience.  #Pantages #Stagedoor #hedwigtour #darrencriss #Glee #averypottermusical
