Darren Criss is quickly becoming one of the hottest all-around performers, especially with his Crissmas. His resume includes acting, singing, songwriting, composition, and playing piano, guitar, drums, violin, and harmonica.

Darren Criss will make a stop at Broadway’s Beacon Theater on December 20!

Darren Criss and his Crissmas

Although he initially gained fame for appearing on the popular TV show “Glee”, he has also started his career on Broadway. This versatile star will tour North America with his super-festival special concert, A Very Darren Crissmas! Join the ranks of this award-winning artist and spread Christmas joy across the country with his first “Holiday” album.

Who’s Darren Criss?

Criss’ charisma and talented voice will surely make this album the first choice for holiday playlists. But before that, why listen to it on Spotify, because you can enjoy it and Mr. Chris himself-experience it for yourself!

A Very Darren Crissmas, which debuted last week, includes familiar songs, little-known B-sides by his favorite artist, and a song composed by him. Adam Lambert, Rachel Evan Wood, and Lenny Wilson accompanied him. Later this year, he will start a multi-city tour on December 3, including tours in New York, Chicago, Boston, and other places.

Is making a holiday album worth it?

To outsiders, making a holiday album seems both daunting (benchmarks already set by Bing, Dolly, Ella, Frank, Johnny, etc.) and dangerous (work is done too well and will eventually be played in the elevator), but Criss Willing to correct misunderstandings in music.

Do you hear jingle bells? This may be Darren Criss returning to his music roots-but this time is a turning point for Christmas. The 34-year-old Glee alumnus released his new holiday album A Very Darren Crissmas on Friday and established his path to return to music.
