Free To The Public Conversations on Broadway: Darren Criss
Darren Criss

Darren Criss

The SAG-AFTRA Foundation and Broadway World has partnered for a filmed Conversations and Q&A series to recognize and celebrate the vibrant theatre community in New York City. This Monday, December 10th at 2:00 PM at the Robin Williams Center, 247 W 54th St, please join  for a Conversations Q&A with Darren Criss, moderated by Broadway World’s Richard Ridge of “Backstage with Richard Ridge!”

Darren Criss is a multi-faceted artist with an illustrious career spanning television, film, music and stage. He recently won a Primetime Emmy Award and received a Golden Globe nod for his portrayal of Andrew Cunanan in Ryan Murphy’s award-winning series “American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace.” He made television history for being the second actor of Asian descent to ever win in this category and first Filipino-American to ever win an Emmy. His turn as Cunanan garnered him rave-reviews, being deemed as “electrifying,” “chilling,” “compelling,” “magnetic and frightening,” and “career-changing.” It has also earned him acting nods from the Television Critics Association Awards, MTV Movie & TV Awards and People’s Choice Awards.

Criss has also starred on Broadway in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and Hedwig and the Angry Inch. In 2015, Criss co-founded Elsie Fest which is touted as “New York City’s first outdoor music festival celebrating tunes from the stage and screen”.

Criss is best known for his portrayal of Blaine Anderson on the Fox musical comedy-drama series Glee. Initially appearing as the lead vocalist of Glees Dalton Academy Warblers, Criss’ first number, a cover version of “Teenage Dream”, became the fastest-selling Glee single, reached number eight on the Billboard Hot 100, and was certified gold in the US. The Warblers have sold over 1.3 million tracks, and the soundtrack album, Glee: The Music Presents the Warblers (2011), peaked at number two on the US Billboard 200. He was nominated for an Emmy Award in 2015 for writing the song “This Time” for the Glee finale.
