Darren Criss is a multi-faceted artist with an illustrious career spanning television, film, music and stage.
He recently won a Primetime Emmy Award for his portrayal of Andrew Cunanan in Ryan Murphy’s award-winning series “American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace.” His performance has been dubbed as “electrifying,” “chilling,” “compelling,” “magnetic and frightening,” and “career-changing,” and has received accolade recognition with nods from the Television Critics Association Awards, MTV Movie & TV Awards and People’s Choice Awards. On October 26, Criss will embark on the west coast leg of the wildly successful LM/DC Tour with his “Glee” co-star Lea Michele in Las Vegas, NV. He will also star as “Lieutenant Eugene Lindsey” alongside Woody Harrelson and Mandy Moore in the Roland Emmerich-directed World War II film “Midway” that’s set for release in 2019. In the fall of 2016, Criss returned to Broadway in his critically-acclaimed performance as Hedwig in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” which kicked off the 2014 Tony Award-winning Best Musical Revival’s national tour. The New York Times touted Criss as “mesmerizing” when he first stepped into the title role on Broadway in 2015. Best known for playing Blaine Anderson on FOX’s global phenomenon “Glee,” he received an Emmy Award nomination in 2015 for best original music and lyrics for the song “This Time,” which was performed by Lea Michele and appeared in the episode titled “Dreams Come True.”
