Darren Criss just signed on for an exciting role… he’ll be starring in the tour for Hedwig and the Angry Inch, a role he also played on Broadway!
“When I found out that the tour would be kicking off in my hometown of San Francisco — the city where I was introduced to Hedwig and the Angry Inch — I could think of no better excuse to get back into the heels of a character I loved and missed so very much,” Darren told EW. “And since Los Angeles has become a second home for me, I relished the idea of seeing what kind of fun Hedwig would bring to the heart of Hollywood. Getting to share this fantastic Broadway production with the two great Californian cities of my own life story will hopefully be as much of a joy for me as it will be for audiences who will experience Hedwig’s life story on the West Coast!”
Be sure to check out the tour — it’s playing in San Fransisco from October 4-30 before heading to Los Angeles from November 1-27.
Darren Criss is dapper in a suit while arriving at the Off-Broadway opening celebration of Dear Evan Hansen held at the Second Stage Theatre on (May 1) in New York City.
The 29-year-old actor was joined at the event by Betsy Wolfe, as well as star-writer of the play Ben Platt and the rest of his co-stars.
Dear Evan Hansen is described as follows: “All his life Evan Hansen has felt invisible. To his peers, to the girl he loves, sometimes even to his own mother. But that was before he wrote the letter — that led to the incident— that started the lie — that ignited a movement – that inspired a community — and changed Evan’s status from the ultimate outsider into the somebody everyone wants to know. But how long can Evan keep his secret? And at what price?”
