A.C.T.'s Young Conservatory has graduated a number of successful alumni, but none perhaps so famous and swooned over than Glee's Darren Criss, who sings, dances, and ably and convincingly plays a gay male on the show but whose agent insists he is not, in fact, gay in real life. And Darren is making another appearance back at his alma mater this year, as he has in the past couple years, for the Young Conservatory Homecoming event on November 30.
The benefit event features a show and a post-show reception with the performers, as well as a pre-show dinner for VIP ticket-buyers at which, we're certain, several older gentlemen will vie for Darren's attention and perhaps pass him small pieces of paper with offers of Italian villas and all-expense-paid Tahitian getaways.
Tickets will run you $100 for cheap seats, $250 for more central seating, or $500 for that VIP dinner plus VIP seating, and all tickets get you into the after-party.
There are a bunch of other alumni/ae performing as well whom you can read about here, but clearly Darren will be the main draw. There are also some play readings on November 29, and a panel discussion with some of the artists, which you can read more about here.
In related news, Darren was spotted last week at New York City piano bar Marie's Crisis, where he was joined by Broadway star Lea Salonga (Miss Saigon) who was the voice of Jasmine in Disney's Alladin, and the two sang "A Whole New World" from Alladin together while Darren played the piano.
