Thank you for posting that review, Joy.
Nice review of Darren, Lena, and the production team.
Yes, Darren is superb!
And this made me laugh: "His leg muscles practically have their own leg muscles."
And thanks Lilikoiluv, for posting the fan reviews. Glad to hear that Darren's parents were there on Opening Night to show their support. Now, we know why Darren is so kind. His parents are so thoughtful and caring.
Referring back to one of my posts, about a comment from these two friend who saw Hedwig on Opening Night together.
I thought this comment was really interesting. I'm not sure, but I don't think she was previously a fan of Darren. She and her friend are artists. Her comment was very perceptive, about not meeting many actors, and that she found it interesting to meet an actor who may inhabit different characters ("interesting to meet a person and see a mix of lives flicker back and forth in their eyes. I don't meet many actors. That must be necessary to be Hedwig & he was perfect.") Enlarge this image Click to see fullsize chachasikes
At @kmimagine’s insistence we waited in a line to meet the cast of @hedwigonbway / and then how sweet that was because we were able to thank @darrencriss for his soulful and rockin performance as Hedwig. It’s was special and for many reasons & feels like the New Year began. Interesting to meet a person and see a mix of lives flicker back and forth in their eyes. I don’t meet many actors. That must be necessary to be Hedwig & he was perfect. “try & tear me down”
Note: Her friend who went with her to the show posted this comment on chachasikes's instagram:
kmimagine "Admittedly jealous of your moment. But I think he knew you were someone special who appreciated the purity of his art form ; ) also what a gent saying hello to ALL of his fans."
Dailydarrennews posted more comments from them. I especially like that comment from chachasikes.
kmimagine "They had a moment which I failed to capture but @darrencriss also thinks @chachasikes is awesome ; ) #hedwigandtheangryinch
chachasikes "It really was special. I feel like the ghosts of Hedwigs-past flow through me."
Joaquin tweeted. Was he there?
