Kicking off the Christmas season Darren Criss will perform songs from his recent holiday album, “A Very Darren Crissmas.” His first ever full-length project includes a wildly eclectic collection of songs from big band Christmas classics to novelty tunes to modern-day folk-pop ballads. Made with Ron Fair, multi-Grammy nominee and producer of numerous Grammy-winning hits, “A Very Darren Crissmas” showcases his artistry delivering both thrillingly unpredictable moments and a timeless sense of Christmas magic. 

Criss is widely known for his role on FOX’s massively successful musical series “Glee,” from which many of his performances of popular songs would lead to several Billboard-topping records. In 2015 his songwriting also landed an Emmy nomination for “Best Original Music and Lyrics,” from penning the song “This Time” for the show’s series finale. In 2018 his work in Ryan Murphy’s “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” received wide critical acclaim, earning him a Primetime Emmy, Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild, and Critics’ Choice Award. He was also recently seen starring in Netflix’s hit series “Hollywood,” for which he also served as executive producer.

As a stage actor, Criss is a veteran whose Broadway credits include the titular role of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch (2015),” “How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying (2012),” and the most recent 2022 revival of David Mamet’s seminal play “American Buffalo” alongside Laurence Fishburne and Sam Rockwell.
