Darren Criss: Backstage at Carnegie Hall


We’re considering adding a special section to BSG that chronicles the movements of Darren Criss. Ok, we’re kidding… mostly. The 29-year-old actor, singer and entrepreneur is best known for his work on Glee and his star turns on broadway in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and Hedwig and the Angry Inch but has recently been delighting fans with concert performances.

Last Fall, Criss organized and headlined the inaugural Elsie Fest musical theater festival at Pier 97 and more recently made his debut with the New York Pops alongside Betsy Wolfe at Carnegie Hall on March 11. Clad in a classic Brooks Brothers tuxedo, Criss invited BSG photographer Jenny Anderson to join him backstage at the legendary performance venue to snap a few photos before he hit the stage.
