Darren Criss fans know of his youtube hit, A Very Harry Potter Musical. Looks like Darren may take over for Daniel Radcliffe aka the original Harry Potter, on broadway.
According to EW.com, Glee's Criss is in discussions to take over Daniel Radcliffe's role in Broadway's How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. (The story was first reported by Deadline.com)
I saw How to Succeed a couple months ago when I was in New York and was so impressed by Daniel Radcliffe, but if Darren Criss took over the role, I would absolutely go see it again! How amazing! I love the starkid!
At the Glee Panel at SDCC 2011 the broadway rumour was addressed:
10:37 - Brad Falchuk says Kurt and Blane are "solid" in their relationship. Darren Criss talked about it a little too. The audience is going nuts for him.
10:39 - Darren Criss asked about going to Broadway. He's being vague on his answer and says he can't confirm anything. Time for audience questions.
10:40 - Darren asked about his solo album. He says he's not sure if his time will allow for more of that with Glee and a "hypothetical Broadway musical."
So, time will tell if this broadway deal pans out, but regardless I see many more great things coming from the starkid Darren Criss... and I am thrilled about it!
