This was interesting to note, about why Darren was not able to do stage door after his last SF show, unfortunately.

one of the reasons darren couldn’t do stage door is because the crew immediately started striking the set, as soon as the show ended.

For the first time in my life, I confessed my love for a man. Told him how his first tour 3 years ago was my first concert ever and how my life has changed since then. Also how I supported him as Prince Eric out in LA and came back to support his hometown run of #hedwigonbway here in SF. From falling in love with him on TV as Blaine Anderson to #darrencriss himself on and off the stage… my heart could not be any more full.  http://ift.tt/2f2yQVb

Look at this adorable picture. He’s signing my glasses that I caught last night and when I told him this was my 15th show of this run, he put his head on my shoulder and laughed and said “oh my god thank you for coming back” *squeaks* (at Hedwig and the Angry Inch at SHN Golden Gate Theatre)

Ashley Riela had seen Darren in Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway, and had admired his portrayal.  She also had seen NPH, Andrew Rannells, and John Cameron Mitchell in the role on Broadway, and is a big Hedwig fan.   She saw Hedwig again in SF.  :happy face 









This person tweeted a couple of times:








These two friends saw Hedwig together.

So this happened. And it was basically a dream come true. Fantastic show, incredible cast, and an unbelievably perfect way to finish celebrating my birthday #hedwigandtheangryinch #shn

A couple of tweets:


For one of the 10/8/16 shows:






I think this was for the Sunday (10/9/16) matinee show.











From the BroadwayWorld Message Board about the tour:

This person (A Canadian in NYC)  had seen Darren in Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway.  The name is familiar to me ( I had read posts on the BWW message board, about Darren in Hedwig on Broadway), and I remember this person previously had some negative things to say about Darren's performance.   Anyway, he/she wrote this recently regarding Darren in the Hedwig tour.

A Canadian in NYC wrote:In the performance I saw, he was very weak and pitchy with the ballads.   Great with the hard rock and his Tommy was pretty close to the best (no-one beats JCM).  I won't be seeing him this time around, but great casting for San Fran and LA.  He'll draw the crowds out no problem - and have a TON of fun with his San Fran patrons I'm sure!

Posted 5/9/16
The thread of "Darren Criss to lead Hedwig tour"




And then, he/she saw Darren in the Sunday matinee show yesterday (10/9/16) in SF, and said this:

A Canadian in NYC wrote:Well I just got out of the matinee show and I wanted to write this before I see Lena tonight because I really do have to give Darren some love. I've been hard on him and his performance in past posts because I honestly thought he didn't rise to the standard. When I saw him at the Belasco his acting was great. When he sang the rock songs he did it well; but I faulted him on the ballads. IMO he was pitchy and breathless.  So I was disappointed. 

Well hello Mr Criss and what have you been up to??? Because he was AMAZING today. I don't know what he's done and a part of me thinks maybe the heat is on with Lena starring with him. They have great chemistry. Whatever the reason he really was amazing. He's totally owning the role. Changing up the songs just enough to make it his own. His ballads were strong and emotional. I was so impressed. And I'm happy for him. To perform so strongly in his home town - kudos all around. 

He has catapulted up to be my fave Hedwig at the moment... we will see what Lena has in store in a couple of hours! 

The set is modest but works really well. They do a lot with the lights.  I actually preferred it to Belasco. 

Managed to dish out some digs to Donald. Well done. Also the Blue Angels are in town for fleet week. Hedwig noted " I blew angels before; they were never that loud"

Emphasis added.
Posted 10/9/16
In the thread, "HEDWIG TOUR"



Note:  He/she also wrote a post highly praising Lena's evening performance on Sunday.   I have read a few comments about her performance last night , and it sounds like many of the people in attendance were fans of her (with one person commenting that for the performance she saw with Darren, it was a relatively quiet crowd that seemed to be people who were not familiar with the show, but who patronized SHN Golden Gate Theatre).   The person above (A Canadian in NYC) said that in part because of the adoring audience, Lena's performance felt like a party, a celebration of her playing the lead role of Hedwig well, a role that she had expressed wanting to play for a while.  Because she is playing a relatively small number of shows, eight (versus Darren's 50 or so shows on the tour), it's more likely that her shows will be more concentrated with her fans, and that fans of Darren will be spread more thinly over his larger number of shows.   For Hedwig and the Angry Inch, audience interaction/enthusiasm is so crucial.  (For those Darren fans seeing him in this tour, be sure to try to help him out by being interactive when the rest of the audience is quiet.)

I think for Lena, there will be several reasons why I am sure she will win rave reviews (both from the media and fan-based):   Because she had won a Tony for the role of Yitzhak in Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway (and thus she is highly respected by both the media and Hedwig fans for such a great achievement); because she is beloved by Hedwig fans/Hedheads for having been a talented and constant presence for a year in the Hedwig family on Broadway (longer than any of the male actors who played Hedwig, except for John's presence in the Hedwig family); because she is one of the few women to play the lead role of Hedwig (I think only the second woman, after Ally Sheedy); because for the first time in this show's history, one actor is playing both the  role of Hedwig and Yitzhak in the same production; and of course, because her voice is most likely the most trained voice of all the actors who played Hedwig on Broadway, with a large range and great power (as for actors who played Yitzhak, I have to say Rebecca is truly impressive too).  I am sure her dramatic scenes are good as well, although I have not had the privilege of seeing her in the show (but I have a Hedwig friend who adores and reveres her).   To keep things in perspective as a fan of Darren, Darren continues to get wonderful comments from audience members, as well as good reviews in this tour, just as he did on Broadway.  If anything, he sounds like he has fine-tuned his performance, if one is to take the word of this person (A Canadian in NYC) who had mixed feelings about Darren after having seen him on Broadway, yet after seeing Darren in this tour, now reveres Darren's performance to the degree that he is near the top of this person's list of favorite Hedwig actors.

Sorry for being long-winded.  I just wanted to comment that this situation of having two different actors play the lead character in the same time period does feel unusual.  However, I am going to just enjoy the praise that Darren receives from media and from the audience, as well as enjoy how much Darren is relishing being able to play his dream role just a little longer.  :happy face  As for Lena, she is so talented and I am sure that the praise that she receives is well-deserved.  I am glad for her that she has the opportunity to shine in this role, like the men who played this iconic character on Broadway.
From dailydarrennews:

Kevin Sessums's comment is supportive of both Darren and Lena.  :happy face

"But you are now great in this."

"He's become a remarkable Hedwig."



Such high praise!  I cannot wait to see Darren in L.A. to see how he has grown.  The last time I saw him in the show on Broadway, was three weeks into his run.  I can't wait to see how much he has grown into the role!

Note:  Kevin Sessums also has seen John Cameron Mitchell in the role of Hedwig.

I was able to meet Darren Criss after his electrifying/stupendous/tear-invoking performance as Hedwig tonight. Not only did he hug me, ask my name, call me a beautiful man…he also FaceTime chatted with ahen86 and said her name too! I am too amazed from the show to exist. #darrencriss #northerncalifornia #norcal #sanfran #sanfrancisco #shn #goldengatetheatre #hedwig #hedwigandtheangryinch #darrencriss

A nice little video by the lovely yanks02, of Darren being gracious and practical--thanking fans for coming and saying he will sign, but that it's not practical to take photos with every individual, especially given the area where the theater is located.
