Could A StarKid Production Be Making Its Way To Broadway? Darren Criss Doesn't See Why Not!

In fact, he has a five year plan to make it happen!

Before he became a man of Broadway (Good luck tonight, BTW!), before he put on his first Dalton sweater vest, Darren Criss was just a boy with a dream. He wanted to make music and theater and laughter and song. He accomplished this with his own theater group called StarKid, who rose to notoriety with their Harry Potter musical. To this day, it is still one of the most watched videos on YouTube, but that show might be making its way to a real Broadway stage very soon. Or perhaps the sequel. Or even Team StarKid's recent musical, Starship.

Turns out, with all the success he's gotten, Darren hasn't forgotten about his humble beginnings and told the New York Times that he hopes to have the resources and connections in the next five years to put his StarKid shows to Broadway.

That would be just … TREMENDOUS! There would be no way in the world we would miss that! Hey, if Twilight: The Musical and The Harry Potter Musical got to the Great White Way at the same time, do you think Midtown would just turn into a war zone of fandoms?!

Our fingers are crossed for you, baby! We want it to happen! You deserve this!

    OH GO NOOO PLEASE!! NOOO!!! Stop with this kid and his annoying friends!! Starkid is a joke, Broadway is real!

    It already has a sequel…

    It would be amazing to see them make it to Broadway. They have put so much hard work into that company and I know they could do it! Good Luck:)

    It's called A Very Potter Musical, and they've made it pretty clear that Warner Bros won't let them do anything profitable with it. Also, Darren has been working with Starkid ever since Glee…this is not charity to his humble beginnings, but rather something he's still very involved with. Not sure they're broadway material…they're a little quirky…maybe off-broadway? Their musicals are hilarious, though, so hopefully Starship or Me and My Dick (another musical that Darren wrote the music for but wasn't in) will see a bigger audience in some form!

    Starkid is fucking brilliant and it would be incredible to see them on a big stage, only it won't be any of the Potter musicals because Warner he would sue them but Pat Brady has mentioned bringing Starship to Broadway.

    Re: leahloo – I forgot about the whole Warner bros. complications, I guess that means they just need to make another musical!:)
