Darren Criss is definitely on a roll! Going from YouTube fame to being recently promoted to a full-time cast member on Glee, it was announced today that Criss will make his Broadway debut replacing Daniel Radcliffe as J. Pierrepont Finch in a limited three-week engagement of How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying early next year.
“Daniel gives an extraordinary performance eight times a week and we knew finding someone to fill his shoes would be nearly impossible. When we learned of Darren’s dream of performing on Broadway we knew we had found our Finch but presumed his Glee schedule would eliminate any chance to work with him,” said the Broadway show’s director/choreographer Rob Ashford.
“We are ecstatic and grateful to Ryan Murphy and his Glee team at 20th Century Fox TV for helping to make both Darren’s and our dream come true.”
Criss’ limited three-week engagement will run from January 3, 2012 through January 22, 2012. Tickets are on sale now.

Hey y’all! I’m slowly trying to get back in the swing of things. I don’t want to overdo things quite yet with a full post. I’ll get back to more written content posts when my arm is hopefully feeling not as sore.
Anyways, the Glee 3D Concert Movie is coming out on August 12, and to kick off your gleek out session, check out two vignettes featuring Rachel Berry and the Warblers’ Blaine Anderson!
And in case you haven’t seen it, here’s the trailer for Glee 3D Concert Movie!
I came across this video on Twitter earlier today, and it’s basically the cutest thing ever. Check it out!
A certain Glee cast member also saw the video and tweeted his thoughts!
That mini Warbler is all sorts of adorable! (And that guy that plays a Warbler on TV isn’t so bad himself!)
Check out a performance clip of Blaine (Darren Criss) and the Dalton Academy Warblers singing Keane’s “Somewhere Only We Know” from tomorrow night’s 90-minute long Glee episode, “Born This Way”!
What do y’all think? And are you excited for the super-sized episode of Glee?
