This is a fan forum to discuss Darren Criss\'s career and his public activities, including his theater, film, and TV projects, his music and musical performances, charitable work, interaction with fans, and interviews.
Thanks for finding that link. Yup, I see "magician Darren Criss" on their August 2 schedule, at 9 am.

Yes to all three points! I hope that it is Darren who is their guest that day, and that he does a musical performance! I also would love to see him do a tour (in conjunction with a release of his solo album, or EP)!
Lilikoiluv wrote:4. if Darren truly has become a magician, that he pulls his long-awaited album/EP out of his hat!
haha! It is very exciting to think of the possibility that Darren will be releasing on July 26, his solo album or EP, that his fans have been eagerly waiting for!
I hope you had a nice dinner, Lilikoiluv. Thanks for your research and your post!
Thanks, Lilikoiluv! They also have a mentalist listed in the same time slot, so that's probably where the magician mistake came from. Or I guess they could be having a magician theme that day, but I'm just going to assume they do mean Darren.
@Poppy wrote:Maybe I'm looking too much into this, but if Darren's announcement on July 26 is about his album, I wonder why he is making it noon-time Eastern Time?
Because that's pretty much the best time he could have picked for ME, obviously. I assume he is doing some promo in New York because he's probably combining this with announcing/promoting Elsie. I think he has some time off from ACS right now because they're filiming Versace scenes and their storylines are so seperate for the most part (I saw casting calls for Italians for Monday/Tuesday and for a fashion show/Vogue party later in the week).

haha! Of course!

And don't forget: If you are in Los Angeles, this WordTheatre "In the Cosmos" production looks like such an interesting event to go to! I was so disappointed, because I have to go to a wedding that day/night. (I also love Sterling Brown!)

Oops, how many times can we let ourselves get fooled into thinking he's releasing his solo music? It seemed such an obvious conclusion this time, with that potential performance on the Today Show and all! Oh well, someday. And his cover of I Dreamed A Dream has always been so pretty, it's nice to have a recorded version.
Hey Poppy, I thought you would like to hear (if you haven't already) that Alex deleted the redirection to the expired darrencrissnews.com domain, so the DCN archive is finally available again at darrencriss-news.tumblr.com!

Whoo Hooo!! Thanks so much, Lin! I really have a lot of affection for darrencriss-news, so this is great news for me, and for fans who like to refer to the valuable resource that DCN is and was! I used to feel a bit sad when I would see a pic or video referring to DCN, knowing the the darrencrissnews.com domain had expired.
So it looks like it's confirmed that Darren is on The Today Show for August 2! AND . . . he is not just appearing on The Today Show; he is PERFORMING!! As our wonderful Lilikoiluv had noted, he is to appear 9-10 am on August 2, on The Today Show on NBC! I already have arranged to record it. Don't forget!

The initial listings for the August 2 TODAY Show advertised a performance by “magician Darren Criss.”
While it seemed likely the error concerned the “magician” part rather than the “Darren Criss” part, the possibility still existed that NBC was referring to “magician Criss Angel.”
NBC just issued a revised lineup for the episode, and it removes the ambiguity.
It will be musician Darren Crissperforming on the show.
Criss will take the stage during the 9-10AM (“Today’s Take”) hour of the broadcast. The block will also feature appearances by Will Poulter and Algee Smith as well as Dean Cain.
Darren will be performing on the TODAY Show’s Today’s Take on Wednesday August 2nd on NBC
From Darren Criss Army:

While the Little Mermaid Live television special may have been postponed, the live-action remake of the blockbuster animated film musical is still in the works. We asked our social media followers to sound off on their ideal casting for the film.
The film would include songs from the 1989 animated film (with lyrics by the late Howard Ashman), much of which was included in the 2008 Broadway musical adaptation. Deadline reports that Tony and Pulitzer winner Lin-Manuel Miranda will also co-write music with multiple Oscar winner Alan Menken, whose prolific output has included Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Newsies, Little Shop of Horrors, Pocahontas, Galavant, and more.

Here is the tweet. Stephen was referencing the story in the link in the tweet, of a sad, awful case of discrimination within a family business (of Bulleit whiskey/bourbon) because the daughter, Hollis, is lesbian.
Had a family crisis today. My parents (while in their car) were hit by a drunk driver. Not sure how much I will be able to post in the next few days. It was a ray of sunshine to see the news about Darren in Versace.
Thanks guys, it's been very hard. Serious injuries, fights with the hospital, scrambling to try to make sure we're ready for care at home after being discharged from the hospital. Posting about Darren is relaxing to me. I appreciate your support! Thanks!
