Sooo I just received 36 huge buttons from Oriental Trading in the post! So if you’re in the Los Angeles area and are at a movie screening that has anything to do with Burgess (like the Rooftop Cinema screening of ROCKY next month) there is a good chance I will be present. So definitely find me as I would love to give you one of these - as a sort of thank you gift for following! 💕
Darren Criss may play a rock star in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, but he’s definitely not partying like one.
ET caught up with the
29-year-old actor at a special screening of the hit musical’s 2001 movie
adaptation starring John Cameron Mitchell at the Rooftop Cinema Club in
Hollywood, where he dished on the hardest part of playing Hedwig on
“Honestly, not being able to
drink!” Criss laughed. “And by the way, you can! But that’s a horrible idea.”
“It’s not so much for
looking good – It’s more so you don’t, like, puke on stage,” he
explained. “I’ll just be here and have a little seltzer water. It’s
fine. There are worse problems than that.”

playing the titular character for the first two stops in San Francisco
and Los Angeles, and he couldn’t be more excited.
"I was never not going to do
it again. I heard it was going to San Francisco, where I’m from, so the
idea of somebody else doing it, I was like, 'No, no, no, no,’” he
confessed. “It’s gotta be me! It’s sort of like a homecoming for me.”
As for what’s next, Criss is
keeping future projects under wraps. “Hopefully 2017 will be a
really interesting year, where I’ll just drop something and you’ll be
like, 'When did he do that?’” he teased. “The answer was, 'Right around
Fans can catch Criss at his performances of Hedwig and the Angry Inch at
the SHN Golden Gate Theatre in San Francisco, and at the Hollywood
Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles in November.
If you are going to be exploring New York City this summer, this event is ideal for you! At this event, you will be viewing underground cinema with friends and family and then enjoy an after party with a beer and wine bar!
I have above 300 photos to post from last week. Starting from Wednesday when I had a fun time making photos in Budapest and later, after work I randomly found some friends on my way home, Thursday when I spent the day walking in the city, met new people at 360 bar and ended up at a rooftop cinema, Saturday when I had a nice morning at a cafe, then spent the whole day at CityMatiné with amazing people and Sunday when I gathered the coolest kids to go on an adventure and explore the abandoned! Photos soon!
