U-M's Darren Criss earns warm reviews in Broadway's 'How to Succeed'
In addition, Criss earned mostly praise from Billboard.com, though reviewer Rae Votta wrote, "On 'Glee' and as a solo act, Criss is more pop-rock than Broadway, and this show leaves little room for him to riff and settle into his comfort zone, sometimes leaving him startlingly soft in contrast to the rest of the chorus. Where in "I Believe In You" that quietness worked, in "Brotherhood of Man," he needed just a bit more. However, he made up for any shortcomings with effortless dancing and striking charisma."
Here's a short video of Criss preparing for, and doing, a promotional photo shoot for "How to Succeed."
Finally, Criss appeared on "Live with Kelly" (with guest co-host Rob Lowe) this morning and talked about "How to Succeed" as well as an upcoming Michael Jackson episode of "Glee."
