Fan Experiences During 2016 - Fri Oct 07, 2016 12:49 am

From dailydarrennews:
Hedwig tour--SF.



Darren at stage door (Tuesday, October 4, 2016).   The video captures how sweet are both Darren and the fan from Australia (Amanda).  He really is the kindest person.  After he finishes talking to her, he moves on to talk to the next fan (who is from Manila!   yea--international fans!)


haleyjames:
my dreams came true!!!! here’s the video i took meeting darren at the hedwig stage door on tuesday the 4th of october :’)

Another video of the same fan, from a different angle.  So sweet--both of them.   He's such a charmer, though, isn't he?  Telling her he is going to name the little stuffed animal, "Amanda."

Some pics of stage door October 6, 2016 (Hedwig tour-SF).  It's amazing how many of these fans are impressed with how nice Darren is.  heart


So sweet that Darren talked with this boy about the Legend of Zelda.  Darren always tries to find a way to connect with the fan as a person.  Much respect.

I think that's so interesting too.  Loved her friend's comment about Darren being a "gent" too! 

Here are a few opening night tweets that DDN captured:

Yea!  Opening night!  celebrate   Break a leg, Darren and Lena! 

Paul McGill has been great about posting on social media for the Hedwig family!

Cool pic from HedwigOnBway!  It does look like fan art from someone, doesn't it?   And so very San Francisco!   I guess for L.A., they can post a pic of the Hollywood sign. 

Thanks for posting the Time Out article, Lilikoiluv.

Thanks for the video of Chris L. and Darren working on Candles, and for answering my question about Chris Lorentz and Darren's Human EP, Lilikoiluv.

Darren makes us all look bad.   It's not enough that he does a strenuous show where he sings the majority of the songs, and executes challenging choreography, but he also works out in the morning! 




I wanted to post this video at curtain call from last night.

Past Fan Experiences - Sat Sep 24, 2016 5:32 pm

While Darren was in Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway.

Lucas wrote:
Seeing Darren Criss live on Broadway was one of the best things EVER. Hedwig and the Angry Inch is itself such a unique and meaningful show, and Darren, Rebecca and the whole team just made the experience even more awesome! I waited 2 hours for Darren on stage door and he was the coolest guy ever, signing every single one of people's playbills and posters, one by one with a big smile on his face. This whole night was just such a crazy and unforgettable experience, and I'm so glad I had the chance to live it. Thank you Darren and all the people at the Belasco, you're dealing with a show that's gonna live forever in the heart of whoever sees it. #hedwigonbway #hedwigandtheangryinch #darrencriss #rebeccanaomijones #broadway #darrenishedwig

This pic shows how committed Darren was in terms of being in the best of shape for Hedwig on Broadway, as well as showing how committed he was in terms of the pain and suffering he went through, in the name of portraying Hedwig's angst.  (That's ice floating in that bath water, as one of the captions indicates.  brrrr!)

The Culturalist had a "Hedwig showdown."   John Shevlin tweeted in regard to that.







Review by gleekto (a fan of Darren), who also saw NPH in the role.  Her review is quite detailed, and I am posting an excerpt (but I urge you to read her entire interesting review).
gleekto wrote:
A Dream or a Song that Hits You So Hard: My Hedwig Experience 

I went to Hedwig last Wednesday and Thursday June 24 and 25, and I am still reeling in the emotions.

[. . . ]

4. I came into this show looking forward to Origin of Love, Wig In a Box, Wicked Little Town, Midnight Radio - And while Midnight Radio is still the heart of it all for me, the hard rock songs - Sugar Daddy, and especially Angry Inch, and Exquisite Corpse - knocked me out. I wrote this already but I did not like Angry Inch at all when I first saw Hedwig and it turned out to have the most emotionally gutting moment of the show with Darren. It’s been going through my head for days and while context is different, I can totally connect with that anger. He is unreal on those hard songs.

5. Darren’s acting is so layered and complicated in the whole thing and most of all he is epic at vulnerability - The moments for me -  As Hedwig wakes up from her botched sex change operation - Her face  - you feel the drugged shock, terror, anger. The moment took my breath away both nights. Another - Hedwig’s facial shift the 2 or 3 times she mentions her father - if you’re not close, you may not even see it but Hedwig goes from sweet, sassy Hedwig to pools of anger and hurt and then back again.

I know many reviewers have said this - but there really is a magnetic sweetness to Darren’s Hedwig. Somehow she is so compelling and sweet, you want to please her and love her and can easily forget how truly terrible she is being at various moments - particularly to Yitzhak. Such a brilliantly complex portrayal.

[. . . ]

The show is brilliant. My heart is cracked wide open. The brightest star.

Note:  I scrolled down the twitter page of @trustthelogan for the period of season 6 of Glee and I did not see any indication that this person followed Glee or Darren.







I thought I would note how Darren made certain comments during his performance on June 26, 2015, acknowledging the Supreme Court decision about the constitutional right to marriage equality across our country (Obergefell v. Hodges).

Nice comment (with photo) from someone who enjoyed NPH in the role (but I cannot post the photo):

Saw Darren Criss in Hedwig and the Angry Inch tonight!! Fantastic!!! Different than the Neil Patrick Harris version, but just as entertaining! Such a huge talent!
Barry Thomas Patterson with Greg Raynes at Belasco Theatre.

Another nice comment on someone's instagram with photo (but I cannot post the photo):

@actingjen  I'm beyond happy that I got to watch @hedwigonbway! The show is wonderful and @darrencriss did a fabulous job as Hedwig. Plus any performer that talks to the first few rows genuinely thanking them for being there and participating in the show deserves great praise. #hedwigandtheangryinch #hedwigonbway #hedwigonbroadway #broadway #theater

perezhilton: I love me some @DarrenCriss, but the person I saw on stage tonight at the Belasco theater was not Darren Criss. It was Hedwig!!! So rockstar!!! Beyond impressed with his performance!!! The extra special thing about @HedwigOnBway is that every actor makes it their own and the text is so powerful and funny and brilliantly written by #JohnCameroMitchell! Run and get your tickets to see #DarrenCriss today! He’s only in the show for another four weeks!!

Note:  I think it was in 1994, that John Cameron Mitchell performed a theatrical piece regarding a character called Hedwig, with songs written by Stephen Trask, in a night club called Squeezebox.   So John Shevlin was one of the original Hedwig fans.
