Very interesting interview, talking about their expectations for their music.


Note:  Darren stated that both he and Chuck are independent artists, indie artists.

Elvis asked why isn't the EP on iHeart?  Darren:  "That's up to you, Mr. Duran.  That's why we came here."   :big grin haha.  Elvis Duran isn't quite sure how to put Lost Boys Life EP on iHeart.   haha!  Elvis wants to know their schedule, and Darren and Chuck are just going with the flow.   Elvis:  "What's the plan?!"  " You're such San Francisco boys."  haha!  :amused  And aw, Elvis is so sweet and supportive, asking that caller to the radio show to buy the Lost Boys Life EP.

Hi Lin! 

Lin wrote:All my thoughts exactly!

Darren had so many red carpet events in the past week or so, I wish he had given an interview at at least one of them. Not that he ever gives much away anyway, but someone please just make him talk a little.


Yes, he's been busy this week.  I agree, it would have been nice to have an interview.  But knowing Darren, as you said, he wouldn't have spoiled much info.  So good at keeping secrets!



I'm a bit behind in posting, but better late than never.

IMPORTANT NOTE
ANNOUNCEMENT:  DELETED POSTS IN Darren Appreciation Thread for 2017

On January 23, 2017, I accidentally deleted one thread (the "Darren Appreciation Thread: General News about Darren for 2017").    I do apologize!


I restored the thread in question, through the back-up, but the back up only went up to January 19, 2017.  Thus, posts from January 20-23, 2017, in the "Darren Appreciation Thread:  General News about Darren for 2017" were lost.

Thank you Lin, for pinpointing what I did wrong, and for the suggestion of what I can do to help prevent me from doing the same error.



IMPORTANT NOTE: 

UPDATE:  Deleted Posts in The Darren Appreciation Thread for 2017

[left] 
Unfortunately, I am unable to restore those posts from January 20-23, 2017, in one thread, the "Darren Appreciation Thread: General News about Darren for 2017."

If anyone remembers if they posted in the "Darren Appreciation Thread: General News about Darren for 2017" from January 20- 23, 2017, feel free to re-post your comments in this thread.  I apologize if I lost any members' posts. 

I think that almost all of the posts during that time period in this one thread were done by me, but I'm not completely sure. 

Going through what Darren Criss Army and Daily Darren News posted during January 20-23, I have re-posted some of the events that they covered from January 20-23, 2017 (the time period of the lost posts in this thread).

Thank you everyone for your patience.

"  I'm so looking forward to hearing those three chat about Hedwig. What an incredible opportunity that was!  They seemed to have had a running "shower" joke after Darren's slip in "showering praise" on Stephen, so that should be fun to watch too.

14 year old me is crying. 21 year old me had an incredible time with alums from her school and is so happy she got to catch up with an old friend (and also got to party with the radest people alive).
Team Starkid– thank you for being so fucking great. Can’t wait for the next time heart

dylansaunders: I’m heading home and am still pinching myself. So many incredible memories, loves, smells and milestones came flooding back to me this week. My artist-self came of age in Ann Arbor, and to be back performing where it all started was a beautiful, humbling and hilarious experience. It wouldn’t be accurate to say this school changed my life–it defined it. Feeling eternally grateful for the time I had at the University of Michigan, and for the friendships I forged there. Happy 100th Birthday to my beloved Department of Theatre & Drama, and thank you for continuing to lead me down the greatest artistic path a fellow could ask for. #GoBlue #Theatre100 #AVSR @umichsmtd @uofmichigan @therealteamstarkid

This is impressive and also very interesting:  An article in Forbes about StarKid:  Forbes: "Darren Criss and Team StarKid Talk Capitalizing on Viral Success"


Some nice quotes from the the Forbes article, courtesy of DCN:


"My heart will always be in theater; I would always rather do a play – always."
— Darren Criss (Forbes.com)
DCN


"
[Darren] Criss, an original StarKid founder, songwriter, and actor, explains how their pioneering use of the Internet to spread theater was partly a financial decision. “There wasn’t a wave to be ridden; (our initial viral success) was an accident,” Criss said. “We put (AVPM) on YouTube simply because that was cheaper than making DVDs and shipping it out to people.”
Most notably, Criss’ work in the AVPM series may have played a role in sparking the attention of director Ryan Murphy and Glee’s casting directors. While he has since soared to Hollywood fame – starring opposite Kristen Wiig in the Girl Most Likely and receiving an Emmy nomination for his original song in Glee – he still returns to his classic theater roots to occasionally perform with StarKid. “My heart will always be in theater; I would always rather do a play – always,” Criss admitted. Most recently, he took his second lead on Broadway in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, after his 2011 debut in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.

A very interesting review, with the writer noting Darren's ability to adapt from solo artist to team player.   Hypable: "‘A Very StarKid Reunion’ is a nostalgic must-have for fans"

‘A Very StarKid Reunion’ is a nostalgic must-have for fans
The latest offering from fandom’s most beloved theater troupe Team StarKid is a DVD filmed at their one-off A Very StarKid Reunion, a live concert performed in October in honor of their alma mater’s 100th anniversary.


Some nice quotes from this review:
Hypable Review wrote:Opening with the number that made them an instant internet sensation, Darren Criss leads most of the original cast of A Very Potter Musical in “Goin’ Back To Hogwarts,” in which the entrance of every character is met with wild cheers, and the sentiment “it’s great to come back to where we began” holds a special significance. This is the night’s first moment in which UMich is branded as Team StarKid’s very own Hogwarts, but it won’t be the last.


Hypable Review wrote:. . . for example, Darren Criss introduced Starship, a show he composed but wasn’t able to perform in, and described his odd, and rather sad, disconnect from the group as he was working on the show’s music while filming his first season on Glee.


For StarKid fans — especially old-school StarKid fans — the Darren Criss situation is always going to be weird, and his presence at events like this always has us heaving a sigh of relief. From what we’ve heard from the rest of the StarKid gang, that sentiment seems to extend to them, at times, too.


Hypable Review wrote:Perhaps Criss, like most of the Glee fandom, is still feeling some burnout from the show’s less-than-graceful demise, but regardless, he is a star, and he has the ambition and the resume to prove it. This is a guy who entered a hit TV show as a guest actor and who left five years later as its leading male, who recently carried a taxing one-man Broadway show (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) on his back. He’s an enigmatic solo performer, but one of my favorite things about Criss is that when he’s with Team StarKid, he never seems to pull focus. His number in the A Very Potter Sequel segment (which happens to be one of the best songs he’s ever personally penned) is as show-stopping as anything he’s ever done onstage, and yet even that still doesn’t turn the night into The Darren Criss Variety Hour.



Hypable Review wrote:
Criss is excellent at turning on the celebrity factor. He’s also excellent at turning it off. He’s, above all, adaptable, and despite the fact that he appears in this concert as one of its big draws, in the lead role of Harry, his presence feels just as expected, yet just as unremarkable, as any of the returning cast. He’s one of the gang, as happy to dance in back as lead up front, and in the best possible way, he doesn’t stand out. This isn’t new: this is a quality that fans have witnessed every time Criss has returned to perform with StarKid over the past five years, and it makes sense: he’s not competing with these people, there’s nothing to prove and nothing at stake. It’s just what he comes home to.


I love how happy Darren is when he is with StarKids.  It really does seem like StarKids is his "home," his safe place, his joyous place.    I also love how although Darren does shine as a solo performer, on his own, that he also is just as happy to be a team player, especially when he is with his close friends, those who make up StarKids.

Oh, I don't know.  :amused 


Lin wrote:No, I don't know when exactly he returned. The wedding was on Friday in Massachusetts and he was spotted in LA on Tuesday, so it wasn't necessarily that quick. I just thought if he was only working on his own projects like planning Elsie and writing music right now, he might have stuck around in NYC a little and watched some shows. Maybe he has simply seen every single show currently on Broadway already.  Topics tagged under tbt on Darren Criss Fan Community - Page 2 1021284439  And I usually don't pay too much attention to his whereabouts, but I saw that Mia was celebrating Pride with Andy Mientus in NYC on Sunday and Darren didn't seem to be with them, so I wondered if he had somewhere else to be. Soooo really just random wishful thinking on my part!


Thanks for the clarification, Lin.  I didn't really know when the wedding was, or where, so thanks for letting me know that.  And I thought the same thing you did, after seeing Mia celebrating Pride with Andy Mientus in NYC, I wondered why Darren was not there with them.  So of course, I started wondering if he was back in L.A., working on a project (and like you said, wondering if it was one of his non-personal projects, because working on Elsie Fest or his album could be done in NYC).
