“Our rehearsal time kept getting cut down more and more. And we only had Darren for an hour before the show… We never saw Darren actually reading the lines, the only thing we had time to do with Darren was walk him through and tell him where to stand in every part, so Darren did a great job! We kept on lying to people, pretty much, we kept on saying “Oh it’s just gonna be a reading. It’s just gonna be a reading, don’t worry guys…” The more and more we were like “We’re never gonna actually get to do this show,” so we were like “This is our last shot, this is the last time we’re gonna have some of this people, it’s the last time we’re gonna be able to get Darren.” So we just kept on making it bigger and bigger without telling anybody. Darren thought he was just going to be sitting, reading, until the day of. He got there and we said “Alright, Darren, here’s your costume back. We’ve gotta draw that scar on your head. You’re gonna stand here and here.” And he was like “You guys. You stinkers. I knew you were gonna do this.””

They had Darren Criss for a hour??? A HOUR??!?!  I have done theatre before and most shows practice for a minimum of a week before getting to the point that show was at and they had a hour???   Darren Criss is a fucking beast!!

The entire production team of Starkid worked nothing short of a miracle in having a show that looked even remotely polished.  FRAK!  If I had the money I would do whatever it took to hire Starkid to do everything.  They are amazing!  Wow!
