Darren Criss with John McDaniel

The American actor, singer and songwriter Darren Criss rose to fame starring on the television series “Glee” from 2010 to 2015 and received Emmy and Golden Globe awards for his leading role as killer Andrew Cunanan in “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” (2018). Criss has appeared on Broadway several times including “How to Succeed in Business…” in 2012, “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” in 2015, and in the 2022 revival of David Mamet’s “American Buffalo.” He has worked in film, released several albums of original music and holiday favorites, and recently finished an Off-Broadway run starring as Seymour in “Little Shop of Horrors. Since bursting onto the pop-culture landscape over a decade ago, Darren Criss has embodied the kind of kaleidoscopic artistry that's entirely uninhibited by form or genre. For this concert, Darren will be performing a playlist of songs featured throughout his wildly eclectic career as both a songwriter and performer.
