GLEE’s Darren Criss Set for HEDWIG


Darren Criss, after wrapping up Glee, is set to star in Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Criss will take on the role for a limited 12 week engagement from April 29th to June 19th. The hugely successful show’s known to cast big names (Neil Patrick Harris, Michael C. Hall, and John Cameron Mitchell to name a few), and Darren Criss slapped onto the marque will be no different. Somehow, the show still manages to surprise us with casting the part. Criss was not on our radar, even though he should have been. He’s a little young, but he has a massive fan base and obvious talent to be the perfect choice. Criss, now done with Glee, has his eyes set on Broadway. Back in 2009 he was seen in the off-Broadway spoof A Very Potter Musical, and starred in the revival of How To Succeed With Business Without Really Trying in 2011. Even after landing the big gig (or should we say wig?) of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Darren Criss wanted another project to keep him busy-  doing a reading for 17 Again (which could be Broadway bound). We think the actor’s perfect to wear the platinum wig, fishnet tights, and glittering red lipstick. He’ll rock it. And we’ll be there to see him do it.
