Darren Criss Has Created a Coachella for Broadway Fans!

Darren Criss has some exciting news – he is launching Elsie Fest, a one-day outdoor music festival celebrating showtunes!

The 28-year-old former Glee actor, who just finished a run on Broadway in the musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch, will be joined on stage at the festival by Aaron Tveit, Tony nominee Laura Osnes, Hamilton‘s Leslie Odom Jr., Broadway legend Lea Salonga, Chicago-based musical theater company StarKid, and more!

“I was at Coachella and thought ‘let’s do this for show tunes,’” Darren said in a statement. “Theater has been going through a wonderful shift in the past few years, from the type of work that’s being produced to the way it’s being consumed by the public. It’s more than showtunes on Broadway — it’s songs from film, TV and YouTube. Since the rules were already changing, I figured, why not shake up people’s ideas of where to watch the performers they love. Enter Elsie.”

Elsie Fest will take place on Sunday, September 27 at JBL Live at Pier 97 in New York City. Tickets go on sale TOMORROW (August 21) at 9am EST on Ticketmaster.

However, things are not always as they seem.

Graceland's Aaron Tveit Talks Mike's Visions, Addiction Issues, & His Future With Paige

Aaron Tveit is opening about the major changes his character faces in this third season of Graceland.

The 31-year-old actor stars on the USA Network drama as FBI agent Mike Warren, who was nearly killed after flat-lining for a good six minutes last year.

Not only did the experience change his outlook on life and work, but it’s been causing him to pop a few more pain meds than recommended.

How soon will this catch up to him? And where does this leave Mike with the rest of the house? JustJared.com caught up with Aaron about what we can expect coming up.

Graceland airs TONIGHT, July 9 @ 10PM on USA Network.

JustJared.com: So let’s talk about Mike’s big changes. He’s a new guy. He has facial hair, yes, but he also has a totally new demeanor.

Aaron Tveit: Jeff [Eastin, the creator] is always open to our input. He called me and kind of let me know what they were thinking for the season, and how I feel about it and if there’s anything I wanted to add. It’s a very open dialogue. So for this, the thing he pitched was the idea of this near-death experience. When that happens what it does to people. He did a bunch of research about real life-and-death experiences, and how people can really be changed by these things that they see. Whether or not it’s in their mind, their whole personality can change. And that’s where we started from. And also coming off of last year, Mike was kind of on a Shakespearean-eqsue ambition trip. I think we kind of wanted to see how this experience affected how he looked at himself previously.

So I think he comes out of this – and even though he’s dealing with all these visions and getting hooked on these meds – he recognizes that the way he was going about things wasn’t the best way, especially leading the people around him. So I think he is in the process of being a changed agent. And the thing we talked about that I thought was really interesting were these new qualities that he’s exhibiting, ultimately giving the people around him some room and not jamming things down their throats. That actually makes a great leader in the FBI and that’s something Mike doesn’t even know yet. So that was out general conversation about where it was all going to go, which I was very excited about.

In case you missed it, Aaron just landed the role of Danny Zuko in Fox’s upcoming live-action production of Grease!
