As they sing in Cabaret, we "think of Elsie to this very day..." and now we have good reason to! We're talking this afternoon about Darren Criss and the theater community's beloved Elsie Fest. It's back!

The music event originated in 2015 having held 5 amazing concerts pre-pandemic each year featuring the best of Broadway singing their hits, originals, pop covers and so much more. Stars like Jeremy Jordan, Megan Hilty, Leslie Odom, Jr., Nick Jonas, Sutton Foster, Gavin Creel, Lindsay Mendez, Lea Salonga, Aaron Tveit among others have performed over the years. We can't wait to hear about this year's lineup!

For 2021, Elsie Fest will be participating in Bric Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival at the Prospect Park Bandshell. Mark your calendars for Sunday, August 29th! Information on when tickets will be available can be found here.
