Team StarKid

So anybody like that guy Darren Criss? You know, the guy who plays Blaine Anderson on Glee? I don't really follow that show, but here's on thing you may not have known about him: before, he and some other guys founded this pretty cool theatre company called Team StarKid! They make these really funny and cool musicals! For example, the first musical they ever released was called A Very Potter Musical and it's a parody of Harry Potter, with Darren Criss staring as Harry. It's really cool to see how young he looked back then, plus the play's really hilarious! Here's the first part of it. The play was so popular that it has two sequels: A Very Potter Sequel and A Very Potter Senior Year!
They also made some other cool plays, like Starship and Holy Musical B@man! Starship is a science-fiction musical that takes about a thousand years in the future. It's about a bug on an alien planet who wants to join this human armed forces group called the Starship Rangers. Holy Musical B@man is a parody of Batman where Batman's having trouble coping with the fact that he's alone. They're latest play is called Twisted, and it's just a parody of Aladin but this time the main character is Jafar, as far as I know. I haven't actually had time to watch it lately. But you guys should seriously check out Team StarKid's YouTube channel. You'll laugh your head off.

  1. I liked the play! It is really funny although the audio is not that good and sometimes I couldn't hear it. I think that Darren Criss is a really good singer and really made his carrier start by this.
