U-M grad Darren Criss now stars on "Glee."

Last fall, reported that Team Starkid — a group of University of Michigan theater and musical theater alumni (including "Glee" star Darren Criss) who created and produced original musicals, like "A Very Potter Musical" and "A Very Potter Sequel," which went viral online — hoped to put together and present another original show called "A Very Potter Threequel" this summer in Ann Arbor.

However, Julia Albain, a member of Team Starkid, recently confirmed that the project has been indefinitely postponed.

"Darren's schedule is just too booked, and we are working on the release of 'Starship,' among other events that we are planning," Albain said via e-mail.

"Starship" is Team Starkid's most recent project: an original musical (with songs by Criss) that premiered on a Chicago stage in February.

Criss starred as Harry Potter in, and wrote some of the music for, the first two "Very Potter" shows.
