“Bringing both Lea Michele and Darren Criss to our stage is such a thrill,” said Rachel Traversari, Senior Director of Marketing at DPAC. “DPAC fans are huge Broadway fans and to have such renowned artists gracing our stage is bringing us to a full-circle moment here at our venue.” 

“We’ve always had so much fun performing together for one-off gigs, so it’s high time we took that show on the road,” Michele and Criss said in a joint statement. “We share so much musical history together between Glee, Broadway and our own solo projects, so it will be fun to put it all together for our fans in one big show.”

Michele last hit the road in the spring of 2017 for a string of sold-out shows on her “Intimate Evening With” North American tour. Performing songs from her albums Louder and Places, critics raved “Lea created a really beautiful night and performance. One of the key factors in the concert being so warm and welcoming was the fact that you knew everyone in the room was feeling the same.”

Criss recently released a five-track indie EP entitled Homework, his first solo project in over seven years. It debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart while SiriusXM described it as a “nice hybrid of early Elton John and Ben Folds.” In 2017, he debuted his indie-pop band Computer Games along with his brother Chuck Criss with their first album Lost Boys Life EP. Billboard deemed the band’s single “Every Single Night” as a contender for song of the summer.
