# Repost glitterqueenonthegogo

I am still processing but I was blown away by Darren Criss…his Hedwig is so powerful and being on the front row allowed me to see the small movements, looks, expressions..I laughed, cried, and loved.

Afterwards we hung at the stage door and he came out pointed to me and said “You are a fucking rock star.” He told the crowd no selfies but when he got back around to us he took these!! #glitterqueenandmetalgodhoneymoon

Note:  glitterqueenonthegogo is an artist, and is a passionate Hedhead.  I scrolled down her Instagram page, and she has seen all of the Broadway Hedwigs (NPH, Andrew Rannells, Michael  C. Hall, John Cameron Mitchell, and Taye Diggs).  She has purchased the Original Cast recording of the Broadway show, the film, and a book about Hedwig.  This is high praise from an avid Hedwig fan.  :happy face

I had an amazing night in San Francisco with 2 of my best friends! We went to see the musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch starring one of our favorite actors, Darren Criss! He was absolutely amazing and the play was very exciting to watch! However, nothing could have prepared me for the excitement of meeting Darren outside the theater. It was worth waiting roughly an hour. He was kind, friendly, and took the time to sign our programs. It was definitely a night to remember, made possible by the lovely Lacey! Thank you again for buying our tickets. #shngoldengatetheatre #hedwigandtheangryinch #darrencriss #gleekforever http://ift.tt/2dei35f

Note:  I scrolled down the twitter page of Erin Larsen during the period of season 6 of Glee (January-March 20, 2015) and I did not see any mention of Glee or Darren.  But she may be a fan of Darren, since I saw her re-tweet Darren's tweet about the deadline in Michigan to register to vote








ha!  This is funny.  I think this is that fan who won the time to go backstage to meet Darren.

From HedwigOnBway Facebook, this person saw the October 6 show (Thursday):

Michael Collier Extraordinary Brilliant! Been a fan for a very long time. Just saw the SF performance last night and it does the original play and movie justice! It occurred to me that perhaps Tommy Gnosis is the imaginary alter ego of Hedwig. The male version of himself, the life he originally was destine to be?

A couple of tweets:


For one of the 10/8/16 shows:






I think this was for the Sunday (10/9/16) matinee show.











From the BroadwayWorld Message Board about the tour:

This person (A Canadian in NYC)  had seen Darren in Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway.  The name is familiar to me ( I had read posts on the BWW message board, about Darren in Hedwig on Broadway), and I remember this person previously had some negative things to say about Darren's performance.   Anyway, he/she wrote this recently regarding Darren in the Hedwig tour.

A Canadian in NYC wrote:In the performance I saw, he was very weak and pitchy with the ballads.   Great with the hard rock and his Tommy was pretty close to the best (no-one beats JCM).  I won't be seeing him this time around, but great casting for San Fran and LA.  He'll draw the crowds out no problem - and have a TON of fun with his San Fran patrons I'm sure!

Posted 5/9/16
The thread of "Darren Criss to lead Hedwig tour"




And then, he/she saw Darren in the Sunday matinee show yesterday (10/9/16) in SF, and said this:

A Canadian in NYC wrote:Well I just got out of the matinee show and I wanted to write this before I see Lena tonight because I really do have to give Darren some love. I've been hard on him and his performance in past posts because I honestly thought he didn't rise to the standard. When I saw him at the Belasco his acting was great. When he sang the rock songs he did it well; but I faulted him on the ballads. IMO he was pitchy and breathless.  So I was disappointed. 

Well hello Mr Criss and what have you been up to??? Because he was AMAZING today. I don't know what he's done and a part of me thinks maybe the heat is on with Lena starring with him. They have great chemistry. Whatever the reason he really was amazing. He's totally owning the role. Changing up the songs just enough to make it his own. His ballads were strong and emotional. I was so impressed. And I'm happy for him. To perform so strongly in his home town - kudos all around. 

He has catapulted up to be my fave Hedwig at the moment... we will see what Lena has in store in a couple of hours! 

The set is modest but works really well. They do a lot with the lights.  I actually preferred it to Belasco. 

Managed to dish out some digs to Donald. Well done. Also the Blue Angels are in town for fleet week. Hedwig noted " I blew angels before; they were never that loud"

Emphasis added.
Posted 10/9/16
In the thread, "HEDWIG TOUR"



Note:  He/she also wrote a post highly praising Lena's evening performance on Sunday.   I have read a few comments about her performance last night , and it sounds like many of the people in attendance were fans of her (with one person commenting that for the performance she saw with Darren, it was a relatively quiet crowd that seemed to be people who were not familiar with the show, but who patronized SHN Golden Gate Theatre).   The person above (A Canadian in NYC) said that in part because of the adoring audience, Lena's performance felt like a party, a celebration of her playing the lead role of Hedwig well, a role that she had expressed wanting to play for a while.  Because she is playing a relatively small number of shows, eight (versus Darren's 50 or so shows on the tour), it's more likely that her shows will be more concentrated with her fans, and that fans of Darren will be spread more thinly over his larger number of shows.   For Hedwig and the Angry Inch, audience interaction/enthusiasm is so crucial.  (For those Darren fans seeing him in this tour, be sure to try to help him out by being interactive when the rest of the audience is quiet.)

I think for Lena, there will be several reasons why I am sure she will win rave reviews (both from the media and fan-based):   Because she had won a Tony for the role of Yitzhak in Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway (and thus she is highly respected by both the media and Hedwig fans for such a great achievement); because she is beloved by Hedwig fans/Hedheads for having been a talented and constant presence for a year in the Hedwig family on Broadway (longer than any of the male actors who played Hedwig, except for John's presence in the Hedwig family); because she is one of the few women to play the lead role of Hedwig (I think only the second woman, after Ally Sheedy); because for the first time in this show's history, one actor is playing both the  role of Hedwig and Yitzhak in the same production; and of course, because her voice is most likely the most trained voice of all the actors who played Hedwig on Broadway, with a large range and great power (as for actors who played Yitzhak, I have to say Rebecca is truly impressive too).  I am sure her dramatic scenes are good as well, although I have not had the privilege of seeing her in the show (but I have a Hedwig friend who adores and reveres her).   To keep things in perspective as a fan of Darren, Darren continues to get wonderful comments from audience members, as well as good reviews in this tour, just as he did on Broadway.  If anything, he sounds like he has fine-tuned his performance, if one is to take the word of this person (A Canadian in NYC) who had mixed feelings about Darren after having seen him on Broadway, yet after seeing Darren in this tour, now reveres Darren's performance to the degree that he is near the top of this person's list of favorite Hedwig actors.

Sorry for being long-winded.  I just wanted to comment that this situation of having two different actors play the lead character in the same time period does feel unusual.  However, I am going to just enjoy the praise that Darren receives from media and from the audience, as well as enjoy how much Darren is relishing being able to play his dream role just a little longer.  :happy face  As for Lena, she is so talented and I am sure that the praise that she receives is well-deserved.  I am glad for her that she has the opportunity to shine in this role, like the men who played this iconic character on Broadway.

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!)

Thank you for posting that review, Joy.   applause   Nice review of Darren, Lena, and the production team.

Yes, Darren is superb! 

And this made me laugh:   "His leg muscles practically have their own leg muscles."  Razz



And thanks Lilikoiluv, for posting the fan reviews.  Glad to hear that Darren's parents were there on Opening Night to show their support.  Now, we know why Darren is so kind.  His parents are so thoughtful and caring. 

Referring back to one of my posts, about a comment from these two friend who saw Hedwig on Opening Night together.
@Poppy wrote:I thought this comment was really interesting.  I'm not sure, but I don't think she was previously a fan of Darren.  She and her friend are artists.  Her comment was very perceptive, about not meeting many actors, and that she found it interesting to meet an actor who may inhabit different characters ("interesting to meet a person and see a mix of lives flicker back and forth in their eyes.  I don't meet many actors.  That must be necessary to be Hedwig & he was perfect.")

chachasikes At @kmimagine’s insistence we waited in a line to meet the cast of @hedwigonbway / and then how sweet that was because we were able to thank @darrencriss for his soulful and rockin performance as Hedwig. It’s was special and for many reasons & feels like the New Year began. Interesting to meet a person and see a mix of lives flicker back and forth in their eyes. I don’t meet many actors. That must be necessary to be Hedwig & he was perfect.  “try & tear me down”


Note:  Her friend who went with her to the show posted this comment on chachasikes's instagram:

kmimagine   "Admittedly jealous  of your moment.   But I think he knew you were someone special who appreciated the purity of his art form ; ) also what a gent saying hello to ALL of his fans."
