Audience-Choice-Awards

Ultimately, the joy of the awards was felt throughout the room, as jokes zinged and friendly insults landed with mirthful punch. Criss, with his high confidence and ability to hypnotize audiences with just a smile, is a hosting natural, and a fan-driven awards show made for a splendid debut for a performer who knows how to reach his fans — maybe better than anyone else on Broadway.
