This person went to see Hedwig because she knew her little sister was a big fan of Darren and of Glee.   It was interesting to see her (big sister's) reaction to seeing Darren in Hedwig.

My sister is a huge fan of Glee and an even bigger fan of Darren Criss. When she learned I was going to New York on business and I asked her if she wanted to come along with me for some sister time I didn't have to twist her arm too hard - she said yes in a flash!

[. . . .]

I did not know what to expect. I purposely did not go to YouTube and look at the show up. I purposely did not watch any trailers or read about it because I wanted to get the full experience of my first Broadway show.

It was gut wrenchingly sad. It was racy, tawdry, wickedly funny, intense, loud, raw, powerful, full of energy. And oh my God was it powerful - just all around incredibly amazing.

I am a salt of the earth rock and roll girl. And this show did not disappoint - the numbers were great - the songs were great - Darren Criss delivered and his costar Rebecca Naomi Jones brought the house down! Not only can Darren sing - Rebecca Naomi Jones has some serious pipes as well.

I laughed- I cried - I found myself saying "WHAT THE HELL THIS IS CRAZY!!!"

[. . . ]

This kid really did a great job. The cast members were great as well as was the band.

This person had seen Hedwig 12 times. 








Another tweet from Lauren Moran, a long-time Hedwig fan (as of May 8, 2015, she had seen the show on Broadway 19 times), about Darren in Hedwig and the Angry Inch.








Some tweets from someone who is a long-time fan of Hedwig and also is a fan of Darren.  It was interesting that this Hedwig fan was aware that other Hedwig fans would not believe him in terms of his praise of Darren's performance, but he nevertheless felt it important to state the truth about how much Darren's performance touched him.







































And a friend of @rainerpism also made a comment about Darren's performance:

Some tweets from @laurenmoran,  who is a big Hedwig fan:















Note:  I scrolled down Lauren's twitter page, for the period that season 6 of Glee was on, and I didn't see anything to indicate she had followed Glee or Darren.





These were comments to The Backlot's Review (note:  Steven Frank is the reviewer of the article):

DexterSoma  
Thanks for this review, Steven. As a total Hedhead, I wasn't so sure when I heard Darren was cast. I think I need to start planning my trip now. I've seen Neil Patrick Harris, Michael C. Hall and John Cameron Mitchell on this Broadway version(unfortunately I was not able to make the trip east for Andrew Rannells). and loved every singly one of their performances. Of course, Hedwig is probably my favorite musical of all time.

I guess I should plan on some overtime to help pay for this trip!




Steven Frank 
As I've said, I've seen JCM, NPH and now DC. But for what it's worth, I struck up a conversation with a woman seated in front of me who had seen all of the Broadway Hedwigs. She said she had no idea what to expect of Criss (I got the feeling she didn't really know who he was but loved Hedwig so much she kept going), but after the show she told me she was, quote, "blown away."

A nice review from The Backlot:
The Backlot (now known as NewNowNext) wrote:
Review: Darren Criss Takes on "Hedwig"

I can only ever approach Hedwig with a combination of awe and trepidation.

The first time I met her, back in her off-Broadway original incarnation, my worries were all about, “What’s this crazy sounding musical we’re going to? And who is this John Cameron Mitchell carrying the show?” Worries that were of course unfounded, as I quickly became enamored of the show, of Mitchell, and of Hedwig herself.

Flash forward 16 years … I’m going to see Neil Patrick Harris, newly opened in Hedwig: Broadway!, and my worries had less to do with him as a performer (I knew he’d be fantastic in the part, and he was, even better than I’d hoped), and more about how the show would translate to the big, bad Broadway stage. And like so much in her life, Hedwig rose to the challenge and shined.

And then … then I heard that Darren Criss was cast as Hedwig. And all I could think was, “Uh oh.”

Let me get this out there right now. I am a huge Darren Criss fan. I’ve seen every episode of Glee. I’ve watched him serenade Chris Colfer to “Teenage Dream” about a thousand times and swooned every time. Heck, I’ve watched — multiple times — A Very Potter Musical, which I think is pure satiric musical genius. But Hedwig? No way. He’s too young, I thought. He has no edge, I thought. A disaster in the making.

Well once again, Hedwig surprised the hell out of me. From the moment he descends from the rafters in full Hedwig drag, it’s clear Criss has got this, fully in command of the role and already interplaying with the audience in a confrontational way that’s crucial to the show’s success. Right away, you get the feeling that Criss — and Hedwig by extension — are fully living in this specific performance, with you as his her specific audience.

That clear sense of Criss’ comfort with the role was only reinforced the night I saw the show, when miking problems plagued the initial few moments. Criss not only worked around them effortlessly but turned them into a spontaneous opportunity for hilarious ad-libbing, quipping, “I thought this was supposed to be a Broadway show … not Doctor Zhivago.”

The first big surprise, though, for me came in the opening musical number. True Hedwig confession time: Hedwig’s opening number, “Tear Me Down,” has never been a favorite of mine. But Criss’ off-the-charts vocal chops and energy made the song new to me and a highlight of the show. The same was true of the other hard rock/punk numbers. If Criss was a bit more subdued (although still very good) on the ballads, he truly excelled on the more hard hitting songs in a way that made them as emotional as they are energizing. This was true of “Angry Inch,” but most especially of the finale number, “Midnight Radio,” where Criss fully becomes Hedwig’s male alter-ego, Tommy Gnosis.

While that song, and Criss’ performance there, are the strongest of the night, that’s not to detract from his performance in full Hedwig regalia. There was never a moment here where, as I feared, I’d see only see Darren Criss on stage in a wig and a dress, or Blaine for that matter, in some Vocal Adrenaline competition stunt, creeping into the performance. Instead, Criss was fully committed to — and indistinguishable from — Hedwig from beginning to end. And yet, also a different Hedwig than I’d seen before.

There’s perhaps no getting away from the age difference. Criss is younger than the actors who’ve portrayed the character before, and references in the show to the fall of the Berlin Wall and albums only reinforce the disconnect. But Criss makes his youthful energy work for the character. This Hedwig might lack NPH’s salacious leer, or JCM’s worldly weariness. But she’s a Hedwig in her own right, seizing her opportunity to be front and center before a live audience and clearly basking in their adoration. She’s the sweetest of the Hedwigs, and the audience eats her up like gummy bears.

[. . .]

When Criss and Jones joined the stage in their climactic duet — he looking jaw-droppingly hot in short shorts, she a confidently wigged Hedwig stand-in — the audience bursts into exuberant cheers. This is a Hedwig that can only fill one with glee.

Darren in Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway:  April 29-July 19, 2015, the Belasco Theatre



In anticipation of Darren reprising his role in Hedwig and the Angry Inch during the tour at the L.A. and SF venues, have some pics of Darren as Hedwig on Broadway.

Note:  Please do not post any bootleg videos here taken of Darren's performances in Hedwig and the Angry Inch at the Belasco Theatre, due to copyright violation.   But gifs, as well as media (promotion/inteview) videos and stage door videos are fine.  Thank you!  :happy face

The Wallstreet Journal wrote:
The casting of Mr. [Darren] Criss is interesting — he’s a lesser-known star than his predecessors, who include Neil Patrick Harris and Michael C. Hall. But producer David Binder says Mr. Criss, who attended the very first preview of “Hedwig” and saw each subsequent Hedwig (there have been four so far) was always a consideration for the role.

“We’ve been talking to him about this since day one,” says Mr. Binder.

Pride Parade NYC, June 28, 2015.  

Darren and Rebecca Naomi Jones were on the float of the Hetrick-Martin Institute (HMI) in the NYC Pride Parade on June 28, 2015. The Hetrick-Martin Institute
 

This was after the U.S. Supreme Court came out on Friday, June 26, with their decision (Obergefell v. Hodges) that the U.S. Constitution guarantees a right to same-sex marriage, on a nation-wide basis. 

It was an especially joyous time in history, and it was so wonderful that Darren was celebrating by being in the Pride Parade in NYC at that time, followed by a special, emotional Pride Sunday performance later that night in Hedwig and the Angry Inch.


Here are some pics.   Enjoy!

Every time I see this photo, it just blows my mind.  Such an amazing moment captured.  I love how much Darren invites  his fans to feel part of a community of love and passion for theater, and how much he expresses his gratitude for their support.

hedwigonbway TBT Darren (on top of a car) saying danke after his last show as #HedwigOnBway in July 2015. This fall, @darrencriss @lenarockerhall @titsofclaytravel west to San Francisco & L.A. HedwigTour.com



Note:  Here is his closing speech (for Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway) to his fans:


"I’m going to do it this way and then you can catch it on Youtube, alright? So, here’s the deal, I wanted to say something onstage but it just didn’t seem appropriate at the time, so a couple of things. First of all, I never thought I’d be given the opportunity or be in the position to open for Taye Diggs, so that’s really exciting. I get to do that (that was a joke). So um, what is there to say? There’s a couple of thank yous I was going to give, but I’m going to give them in person to friends at this next party. But first of all, guys, it’s our good friend Bobby Devlin’s last night. Bobby has been with every Hedwig and he’s worked his ass off to keep you guys safe and keep everyone happy. Number two, the American theater has a lot of amazing things, we have this very rich history of really kickass theaters and shows and characters and John Cameron Mitchell has given us one of the greatest, like the greatest character to add to the American lexicon of great theater, and I feel so incredibly proud to have been part of that narrative. Like a lot of you guys, I was a huge fan for a long time so I know what it’s like to be a fan and to wait out here at stage doors and to come back and come back get that picture and get that autograph - I know what it’s like to be really moved by something. So, I wanted to thank you guys for waiting out here in this crazy heat and the ticket prices and all that crazy shit, it all means being part of something that is greater than ourselves so I share that very much with you guys and I thank you for the bottomest parts of my heart for waiting all this time and being part of this. This isn’t just my show, it’s all of our show, and you guys are very much a part of it with me and you’ve made it such an incredible experience. I know a lot of guys are involved in theater and stuff - it’s been such a privilege to be able to share that magic that I got from the show and recycle it back to you guys. I think that’s very appropriate. So having said that, I hope to look forward to seeing any of you guys, whether it be here, somewhere in some small theater whether it’s backstage or onstage, I look forward to seeing you guys taking this on in your own way, doing it, putting on some heels, and kicking ass. So, I wish you all the best and I’ll catch you guys on the midnight radio."
