I haven't watched the show.   They look adorable. 


Aw, nice. I've seen a few episodes. The story hasn't really grabbed me, but all the kids seemed awesome.

An article about Elsie Fest 2016 in AXS.

AXS.com wrote:Labor Day entertainment: Darren Criss and Elsie Fest make Coney Island encore

New York’s outdoor music festival for show tunes, Elsie Fest, returns for its second year in a row on Labor Day, Monday Sept. 5, at historic Coney Island. The all-day entertainment extravaganza debuted last year along the Hudson River at Pier 97. This year, Elsie Fest attendees can spend the day soaking up the sun and the sand along the Boardwalk at Coney Island and catch the show which starts at 1 p.m. and runs until 10 p.m. in the Ford Amphitheatre. Festival tickets, including VIP tickets, premiere seating options and Meet and Greet packages are currently on sale.
 
Elsie Fest is the brainchild of Broadway and TV star Darren Criss (“Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” “Glee”), Jordan Roth, and Ricky Rollins who wanted to create an outlet for Broadway enthusiasts to gather and see some of their favorite artists from the stage and screen perform live in an all-day outdoor setting. Last year’s critically-acclaimed festival was a huge success. This year, Criss will be joined by Tituss Burgess (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”), Megan Hilty (“Wicked,” “Smash”), Tony Award winners Lena Hall (“Hedwig and the Angry Inch”) and Jason Robert Brown (“The Bridges of Madison County”), Corey Cott (“Newsies”), indie band Rebel and a Basketcase (featuring Evan Rachel Wood).

Darren Criss is a proud University of Michigan theater grad and Tony-nominated fellow U of M alums Pasek and Paul (“A Christmas Story, the Musical”) will also perform, along with Julie James and Tony Award-winning special guest Cynthia Erivo (“The Color Purple”). Elsie Fest has also been known to turn out surprise guests. So, who knows who else might pop in to sing a song or two?

Broadway.com praised Darren Criss and last year’s festival calling the “Harry Potter” YouTube spoof star “clearly the next generation of stage star” and deemed Elsie Fest 2015 “easily the coolest Broadway event of the year.” That’s a pretty impressive assessment for a first-time launch.

The remarkable thing about Elsie Fest is that it takes a Broadway-style entertainment experience to a whole new level. It presents an outdoor concert festival vibe (which Criss previously dubbed Coachella for show tunes) in a kickin’ atmosphere with singalongs at Marie’s Beer Garden in between sets and of course, there will be food and drink galore.

Darren Criss alone is a dynamic, larger-than-life live performer who oozes passion for theater, show tunes and music in general. He is the only “Glee” cast member to have contributed original songs written specifically for the series one of which, “This Time,” earned him his first Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics. Put him together with the other huge names on this year’s Elsie Fest performer lineup and lucky attendees are in for an explosive, multi-faceted musical treat.

Elsie Fest 2016 is sponsored by iHeart Radio, LiveNation, Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, and Jujamcyn Theaters. Ticket prices range from $30 - $60 each (before fees) for Gallery Seating, $30-$85 each (before fees) for Promenade Seating and $85-$125 each (before fees) for Orchestra Seating. VIP, Premium Seating and Meet and Greet Packages are also available at varying prices. Consult the Elsie Fest website for more information.
