Photo Coverage: Inside The New York Pops After Party with Betsy Wolfe, Darren Criss, and More!

The excitement and joy of last night's The New York Pops 42nd on 57th: Broadway Today, continued on 55th street after the last note sounded at Carnegie Hall. The artists and Maestro Steven Reineke joined guests to celebrate another great concert in this 33rd season of The New York Pops. BroadwayWorld was there for the big event - check out photos below!

With guest artists Darren Criss (Glee) and Betsy Wolfe (The Mystery of Edwin Drood), the concert brings the best of Broadway uptown. The program featured a variety of musical theatre hits. Darren Criss replaced the previously announced Jeremy Jordan, who was unavailable due to a scheduling issue.

"The New York Pops and I are thrilled to invite Darren Criss and Betsy Wolfe to share the stage with us at Carnegie Hall in a concert celebrating modern Broadway tunes," said Music Director Steven Reineke. "Darren and Betsy are both electric performers - you won't want to miss this concert!"

The New York Pops' 33rd season continues on Friday, April 8, 2016, 8:00PM at Carnegie Hall with Lights, Camera, Action: Spielberg and Williams. Per audience request, the musicians of the orchestra will again take center stage in this tribute to the legendary collaborations between Academy Award winners Steven Spielberg and John Williams.

Nicolas King and Seth Sikes have their own individual, respective careers and come from what would seem like different orbits. But, actually, it turns out, maybe not so much, because when they come together as THE NEW BELTERS, a special kind of energy force forms and it’s reminiscent of, say, Martin & Lewis (Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis).
