It's a story that has become Gleek and musical theater folklore: One day a lightening-scarred Darren Criss is starring in a straight-to-YouTube video of 'Harry Potter: The Musical', and the next he's taking over for Daniel Radcliffe in the Broadway production of 'How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.'
Now it looks like a few vocally-inclined folks are taking a page out of the Criss handbook. For all those thick-skinned Twihards out there -- (crickets) -- a new production, called 'Twilight: The Musical,' which parodies the books and movies that fans know and love, is hitting the stage.
The musical "examines our culture of obsession through the story of teenage outsider Bella Swan who risks everything when she embarks on a star-crossed romance with Vampire Edward Cullen." 'Twilight: The Musical' has no official ties to the Stephenie Meyer books, nor the record-breaking film series.
The cast includes some of Criss's Potter classmates as well as Meghann Fahy ('Next to Normal') as Bella Swan and Jenna Leigh Green ('Wicked') as Rosalie. Who knows? They could very well may end up being the next big thing.
A reading of 'Twilight: The Musical,' will happen on Jan. 16 at 8 p.m. EST at New World Stages in New York City.
