A lot of musical fans know Darren Criss as one of the ensemble characters from Fox's Glee. Heck, he's been Blaine for a couple of seasons, an openly gay and confident student who scored the first Billboard #1 Hit for the show with his cover of Katy Perry's Teenage Dreams. I know him as Harry F-ing Potter.

I first saw Darren Criss way back in 2009, or so, starring in A Very Potter Musical on Youtube. The musical is a Starkid fan production with music and lyrics written by Darren Criss and A.J. Holmes and a book written by by Matt Lang, Nick Lang, and Brian Holden. The musical is a full production piece that stretches out to three acts and is one of the most enjoyable finds I have ever watched on youtube. It lovingly satires J. K. Rowling's creations and tropes- from bumbling gay Dumbledore to blond haired bully Malfoy, and creates an amusing spectacle that no true Harry Potter or Darren Criss fan should miss out on.

If you haven't already checked it out, make sure to watch it at the link below. Or if you want more Potter, check out A Very Potter Sequel.
