Criss, musician, composer and actor, just finished his run as 'Blaine Anderson' on Fox's Emmy and Golden Globe Award winning series GLEE. He made his Broadway debut in January of 2012 as J. Pierrepont Finch in HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING. With Criss at the helm, the revival made just over $4 million, which proved to be the most lucrative three weeks of its 11-month run.

Jones has received critical acclaim for her performances in BIG LOVE, which recently ran at Signature Theatre Company, MURDER BALLAD (Lily Award, Lortel Award nomination), AMERICAN IDIOT, and PASSING STRANGE.

HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH, with book by John Cameron Mitchell and music and lyrics by Stephen Trask, directed by Michael Mayer, has received rave reviews and is the winner of four Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival. It was also awarded Best Musical Revival by the Drama Desk Awards, Drama League Awards, and Outer Critics Circle Awards. The Grammy nominated Original Broadway Cast album for Hedwig and the Angry Inch is available from Atlantic Records.

I've always been in love with this show. HEDWIG on Broadway
