Glee star, Darren Criss made his Broadway debut last night at the Al Hirschfeld Theater in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.
Darren stepped into the role for departing star Daniel Radcliffe alongside Beau Bridges who replaces John Larroquette.
Reportedly, Darren’s fans came out in full force last night, with a screaming throng waiting for him at the stage door after his performance.
“Succeed” producer, Craig Zadan tells the New York Times, “We’d also definitely be up for finding another show for Darren, once he is not tied down to ‘Glee’. ” Tuesday night’s opening was sold out, and the ticket sales for the rest of Darren’s 3 week run are “very strong,” according to Zadan.
Nick Jonas will step into the role when Darren ends his run on January 22 to return to Glee.
Check out a post-performance interview with Darren and a gallery of photos from last night’s premiere below.
Darren will only miss one episode of Glee, reportedly. But, as Darren tells E News, it’s the big Latin episode featuring Ricky Martin. Drat.
