Darren Criss On Elsie Fest, Hedwig And Funemployment

An article in Huffingtonpost.com.  Something about the article prevented me from copying and pasting it.   He did talk about how the new venue on Cooney Island and scheduling Elsie Fest to fall on the Labor Day weekend (when some folks go out of town) pose a few risks. It is nice that it falls on Monday, which is a day when Broadway performers have off. 

I liked this quote from the Huffingtonpost article: 
Huffingtonpost.com wrote:Darren Criss and Evan Rachel Wood Talk Elsie Fest; Broadway At The Beach

Criss told me last year that his goal with Elsie Fest is to take "the passion of fans and bring them and others together in a contemporary, pop-culture driven way" during a time of "transformation" for musical theater.

By reinforcing this commitment, Criss continues to prove himself beyond his own talent as a performer and the TV heartthrob singing sensation turned Broadway star.  He's convened a team joining the vanguards who are revolutionizing entertainment, creating a modern experience that combines pop culture with the tradition of theater.

This is cute.
People.com wrote:What These Stranger Things Kids Lack in '80s Know-How, They Make Up for with Enthusiasm

Caleb McLaughlin and Gaten Matarazzo may play two characters living in the ‘80s on Stranger Things, but that doesn’t mean they’re well-versed in what was trending that era.

PEOPLE has an exclusive video of the two young stars testing their ‘80s knowledge (or lack thereof) with former Glee star Darren Criss, 29, and as expected, they don’t … know much.
