Darren Criss - Darren Criss Urges Friends To Stay Away From Opening Night Of New Show

Glee star Darren Criss is begging family and friends not to attend his opening night as Daniel Radcliffe's replacement in Broadway musical How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying - because he'll need a couple of weeks to master the role of J. Pierrepont Finch.
Criss begins a three-week run in the hit show on 3 January (12) and admits he doesn't need the pressure of performing in front of people he knows until he's super confident.
He says, "Everyone's like, 'Oh, I gotta go to your opening night', but I'm terrified. I'm like, 'No, see it at, like, two-and-a-half weeks...'"
And he tells Entertainment Weekly magazine, "Theatre is a living creature. It takes a while to break in, like a new pair of shoes."
Criss will hand over the reigns of the show to Nick Jonas when he completes his leading man stint.
