Some congrats via social media to Darren for being awarded an Emmy.  I believe I found most of these via @acsversace-news or @DCriss_News.  (Note:  This is in addition to the other posts I made somewhere upstream.  For example Grant Gustin's instagram video congratulating Darren is somewhere above.)  The posts with pics/screen shots are via Darren Criss Army, D-Criss-News, gottalivealoha, ipwarn--thank you!



Ok, is the S.E. Hinton a fan of Darren? confused









Media

Many more congrats from media are posted somewhere above.  The Broadway sites (Broadway.com, BroadwayWorld, Playbill etc) also congratulated Darren via social media.

There were a lot of media that congratulated Darren but I wanted to post this one from Broadway.com because I thought it was sweet.








ACS Versace cast/crew


Again, I tried to post whatever congrats from the ACS Versace family that the DC fan sites noted, so there are many of those posts somewhere above.

StarKids

Note:  I noticed there are a lot of StarKid friends of Darren who used social media to congratulate him.  I think it's safe to assume every single member of the StarKid theater group is so happy for Darren and congratulated him.  At the end, I posted whatever congratulations via social media from StarKid friends'  that I saw that Darren Criss Army posted (see somewhere above), but there are so many more StarKids' posts than that, and it would take so much time for me to post all their social media congratulations.  Sorry!   :apology   (To be honest, I'm having trouble keeping straight whether I already posted someone's congratulations to Darren, or not--there are so many!)

Love this message from Word Theatre.  So true about Darren--this is one of his special traits, taking time to support good causes even when he is so busy (and must be very tired).  Love so much that he does this time and time again.  heart heart heart This is also one of my favorite performances of his.  He sounds fantastic, and I love the visual and musical drama of this performance.

On Sunday, June 28,  both the Pride Parade and a special Sunday Pride performance occurred.  Here are a couple of accounts on tumblr about how special the performance was on that day.

hedwig 6/28 pride performance

Yesterday was my 16th time seeing Hedwig and the Angry Inch and to this day the most emotional and exhilarating performance I’ve ever seen . . . We finally get inside to our seats (I’m seating row E stage right) and you could feel the happiness inside the theater. It just felt so different than other days I’ve seen the show. . . And now I’m going to skip all the way to Midnight Radio. The emotions were running high. It was time to bring out the flags. The vocals for Midnight Radio were so strong, the best I’ve ever heard (It could have been because of the adrenaline rush). Darren starts the “lift up your hands” part but that’s when he’s supposed to be looking at Rebecca about 3 lift up your hands in he looks into the audience and sees flags up and he honestly didn’t know what to do with himself. I’m not sure if anyone further back could notice but he was holding back tears and you could see him choking up. We all started crying. Everyone was singing and waving their flags. He grabs a flag from the front row and waves it. It’s just an emotional mess I can’t even talk about the last few seconds because it was a blur.

At stage door the whole band came out for what I know is maybe the 2nd time in this history of Hedwig. Matt said when they saw the flags they all started crying. Rebecca said she wanted to bring out a flag but didn’t have enough time to pass it but was so happy we all did it. Darren said we made it really special for him.

Hedwig PRIDE 6/28

Remember how I saw Darren in Hedwig on Saturday night and said it was amped up from the previous performances I’d seen? Well, that’s still true, but I must say that I perhaps spoke too quickly because the added Sunday PRIDE performance was the most incredible thing I have seen on any theatrical stage. Ever. Anywhere. Period.

A great deal of this was due to the audience. We were all pumped and excited. The spirit of Pride was everywhere, the theatre crackling with that buzzing energy (something that can only truly be felt rather than explained), and the audience gave Darren (the whole cast, really) all of that energy. Darren and Rebecca really fed off of that, and as a result, the show was electrifying. Hedwig was more vulnerable in those moments where she exposes herself to the audience, but she was also far peppier in the “happier” moments than I have ever seen. Every moment and emotion was felt more strongly than I have ever seen before.

Darren also took a lot of time moment-to-moment. The result was that the show ran over by quite a bit, but taking time allowed the more dramatic moments to “land,” while the improvisational moments stretched out for a longer amount of time. There was a lot of playful interaction between Hedwig and the audience as well as between Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

Darren peppered the entire show with little mentions about Pride. I can’t remember all of them because there were quite honestly a bunch of references . . .

Improvised lines/moments that were in the show:

  • Usually, when the audience cheers for Yitzhak, Hedwig will cut the audience off and say something like, “there’s no need for that.” This time, however, Darren allowed the cheering to go on for a pretty long time before saying, “usually, this would make me mad but for some reason I’m feeling prideful today.”
  • During the sing-along section of “Wig in a Box,” Hedwig said, “follow the bouncing balls, which is probably what you did earlier today at the parade.”
  • Darren grabbed a Pride flag from an audience member and waved it during “Midnight Radio.”


[. . . ]

I happened to catch Matthew [Morrison] during “Sugar Daddy” and he was literally cracking up after Darren carwashed the person a few rows in front of him. I found it amusing and worth sharing.

Quite honestly, this show was amazing. You could tell that the cast was affected by the audience’s spirit and passion. When I spoke to Matt Duncan at stage door, he said that they were all choked up tonight, especially when the audience started waving Pride flags. He told me that Darren was very emotional from the audience’s energy and love. When I spoke to them, both Rebecca and Darren said that tonight’s performance was “very special.” I can’t agree enough with this. I often say that theatre is a communal experience, but this was one of the only times I’ve attended a show when it actually really felt that we–the audience–were all “in this” together. It was an unforgettable experience, so thank you not only to Darren, Rebecca, and Tits of Clay, but also to every single member of that audience who helped to create a truly amazing night at the theatre.

They shouted “Lift up your hands!” and a very live audience filled with the spirit of #NYCPride answered with the waving of dozens of #Rainbow flags. I damn near lost it.

-From Anthony Gaccione:  "Awesome show tonight!"

And of course, popularity of a celebrity is connected to the popularity of the product with which the celebrity is most often closely associated (TV show, film, musical, etc).   The cast of The Big Bang are more well known and popular than a less well-known TV show.

I personally also believe that the reputation of a celebrity also contributes to their popularity.  Darren has the reputation of going above and beyond for his fans, making time to take pics and sign autographs even when he is busy, making eye contact (trying to make a connection), asking fans how they are doing (showing he cares), just in general being very kind to others because he is a decent, good person.   Also, I'm sure he also is aware of how important these moments will be to people, how sometimes the memory of these moments can carry various individuals through tough times in their lives.
