The rumors are true: Glee star Darren Criss is about to make his Broadway debut. The powerhouse is best known for playing Blaine Anderson, a gay student at Dalton Academy and the leader of The Warblers, an all-male singing group, on the TV musical-comedy. Darren wil be replacing Harry Potter’s Daniel Radcliffe in the hit stage show, How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying, producers said Monday. He’ll take on the role when Daniel’s contract ends January.
On Sunday, Glee’s Darren Criss (Blaine) and the Dalton Academy Warblers performed Katy Perry’s summer mega-hit “Teenage Dream” at the Trevor Project Live Benefit — a Hollywood charity event benefitting the nation’s only gay & lesbian suicide prevention hotline — featuring an appearance from very special surprise guest: Katy herself.
Devoted Gleeks can expect to see more of Darren live soon. He’ll be hitting the road with the rest of the gang from the hit FOX musical-comedy for a tour of Europe next summer.
