Darren Criss Celebrates 'American Buffalo' Opening at Star-Studded Performance, Days After Becoming a Father!

Darren Criss, who just welcomed his first child into the world three days ago, is celebrating the opening of his Broadway play American Buffalo!

The 35-year-old actor and his co-stars Sam Rockwell and Laurence Fishburne took their opening night bows in front of a star-studded crowd at the Circle in the Square Theatre on Thursday (April 14) in New York City.

In American Buffalo, three small time hustlers want a bigger cut of the American dream. David Mamet’s classic about loyalty and greed returns to Broadway more explosive and pointed than ever, exposing a timely American truth: crime and business are two sides of the same coin.

Stars in attendance at the event included Sam‘s partner Leslie Bibb, as well as Angela Bassett, Josh Brolin, Bryan Cranston, Billy Crudup, Tony Goldwyn, Piper Perabo, Anthony Anderson, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Louisa Jacobson, Marin Ireland, Camryn Manheim, Callie Thorne, and Broadway star Victoria Clark.

The limited run is open through July 10.

FYI: Angela is wearing an Azzi & Osta outfit and Sarah Flint heels.

Christina Aguilera, H.E.R., & Keith Urban Pay Tribute to Tina Turner at Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony

Tina Turner is being honored at the 2021 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony!

The 81-year-old entertainer was inducted into the Hall of Fame for the second time on Saturday evening (October 30) at the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in Cleveland, Ohio.

She was previously inducted with Ike Turner back in 1991.

While she was being honored, tons of stars took to the stage to perform a medley of Tina‘s hit songs.

First up was Keith Urban and H.E.R., who rocked out while performing “It’s Only Love.”

Next up was country singer Mickey Guyton, who performed Tina‘s song “What’s Love Got to Do With.”

Christina Aguilera rounded out the medley, performing “River Deep Mountain High.”

Angela Bassett – who famously portrayed Tina in the 1993 biopic What’s Love Got to Do With It – inducted Tina into the Hall of Fame with a touching speech.

“To be a woman and to be Black, often meant a lifetime of being defined as not good enough,” Angela said on stage. “Imagine: A black girl in Nutbush, Tennessee who embodied more talent than her small town could have ever dreamed. Imagine that same girl breaking through every barrier to one day make history. That woman, that queen — Tina Turner — is who we are here tonight to celebrate.”
