VIDEO: Darren Criss Performs 'Getting Married Today' at BROADWAY BACKWARDS
A bevy of Broadway's brightest stars joined a sold-out audience on March 11, 2019, to celebrate and motivate the LGBTQ community and its allies through gender-reversed renditions of beloved show tunes, spectacular choreography and a record-breaking fundraising total at Broadway Backwards.
Among the performers was Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Darren Criss who performed the rapid-fire patter of Stephen Sondheim's "Getting Married Today" from Company. Criss was joined by Ward Billeisen, Michael James Scott and the Broadway Backwards ensemble.
