Answer: No. Whomp, whomp.
Some of you, like us, might know Darren Criss from his previous work before Glee. You might remember him from Eastwick or some of his solo shows he used to do around town. Then again, you might also know him as Harry Potter…as in, the kid who played Harry Potter in the Team Starkid production of A Very Potter Musical.
For those of you who don't know, Darren was once a viral sensation when he and this theater troupe from the University of Michigan wrote and starred in a musical adaptation of the book series which became a huge hit, and if we may say so, was very funny. It spawned a sequel shortly before Darren's career took off with Glee and there was hope that a third adaptation would make it's way to Ann Arbor this summer. However, according to the troupe, Darren's schedule is "just too booked" and the group has already started on some other projects without him.
C'est la vie! We can understand people's disappointment and the timing would have been perfect to resurrect the show (with the actual Harry Potter movie franchise coming to a close.) Still, you can't hold to big of a grudge on the guy for making it big. This is his moment. He should enjoy it.
But hopefully, he doesn't also forget where he came from….that's important too.
