Darren Criss sings his heart out while performing at Elsie Fest on Sunday (September 27) at Pier 97 in New York City.
The 28-year-old former Glee star organized the outdoor music festival celebrating show tunes from stage and screen and he joined Lea Salonga, who voiced Jasmine in Aladdin, to sing “A Whole New World.”
Darren Criss just created an event that Broadway fans are going to love him for – get ready for Elsie Fest!
The 28-year-old actor is launching the outdoor music festival to make a “Coachella for showtunes” and he will be joined in the Big Apple by some of Broadway’s best talent for the event.
“I was at Coachella and thought ‘let’s do this for show tunes,’” Darren said in a statement. “Theater has been going through a wonderful shift in the past few years, from the type of work that’s being produced to the way it’s being consumed by the public. It’s more than showtunes on Broadway — it’s songs from film, TV and YouTube. Since the rules were already changing, I figured, why not shake up people’s ideas of where to watch the performers they love. Enter Elsie.”
Elsie Fest will take place on Sunday, September 27 at JBL Live at Pier 97 in New York City. Tickets are on sale now on Ticketmaster.
It looks like there is a little Glee reunion in the works as one of the show’s stars is in negotiations to join the cast of Ryan Murphy‘s American Horror Story: Hotel.
Darren Criss will reportedly play a recurring role on the upcoming season of the FX show and he will make his debut in the Halloween episode.
The 28-year-old actor “is in talks to play Justin, a Silver Lake hipster who heads to the hotel on Halloween with his equally hip girlfriend to escape pesky trick-or-treaters,” according to E! News.
It seems though that Darren‘s character is going to give too many room service demands and Kathy Bates‘ character, who is the head of the hotel, will give him a “Halloween trick they will never forget.”
Darren and Mia spent some time by the pool before he’ll head back to the set of Smitten!, where he stars as young American fashion executive, who gets kidnapped and taken into the alpine mountains by three bumbling members of the mafia.
