Darren Criss and Lea Michele Are Going on Tour Together


Broadway and “Glee” stars Lea Michele and Darren Criss will launch a U.S. concert tour—the LM/DC Tour—May 30 in Nashville, Tennessee, according to Playbill.com.

The two met in 2010 on the set of Glee; Michele went on to star in Murphy’s Scream Queens and Criss just recently wrapped the latest iteration of Murphy’s American Crime Story anthology series: The Assassination of Gianni Versace.

Michele got her start as a replacement for Young Cosette in the original Les Misérables. She went on to originate the role of Little Girl in Ragtime, played Sphrintze in the 2004 revival of Fiddler on the Roof, and originated the role of Wendla in Broadway’s Spring Awakening.

Criss broke out on Glee and later moved to Broadway, replacing Daniel Radcliffe in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. He later starred as the title role in Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

The actor also founded Elsie Fest, the music festival that blends pop music and Broadway. He and Michele sang together this past summer at the third annual festival in Central Park.
