Darren Criss and Team Starkid return to Hogwarts -- VIDEO

Before Darren Criss was a star of the Broadway stage and the small screen, he was just a wizard, standing in front of Ginny Weasley, asking her to love him.

Criss shot to fame in 2009, when a Harry Potter parody he co-wrote went viral on YouTube. A Very Potter Musical‘s various parts have since been viewed millions of times, allowing Criss and his comrades — collectively, they’re known as Team StarKid — to create a similarly popular sequel in 2010, as well as a variety of other productions. But when Hollywood beckoned that same year, Criss moved on to bigger things, and plans for a third Potter parody — A Very Potter 3D: A Very Potter Senior Year — had to be put on hold. Until now.


Ryan Murphy tweets 'Glee'-ful pic of Kurt's 'Sex'-y new mentor, Isabelle


Gleeks, time to get your giddy on. After we were treated to both photo and video teases for Cassandra July — Rachel’s acid-tongued NYADA dance instructor played by Kate Hudson — it was only a matter of time before Kurt’s Midwestern mentor came on the scene. Ladies and gentlemen, allow us to introduce you to Isabelle, Kurt’s (seemingly much friendlier) guide to all things jazz hands, played by Sarah Jessica Parker. Glee honcho Ryan Murphy tweeted this pic of Chris Colfer, who plays Kurt, cuddling up to Parker on set. Snap judgment: If the two stars can get this close between takes, that would imply that Kurt and Isabelle’s burgeoning student/teacher relationship probably won’t end in an out-for-blood diva-off. Then again, this is Glee. Frenemies make the best competitors.

This pics brings with it a good news/bad news situation, though. While we now know that Isabelle shares Kurt’s penchant for tartan (hello, kilt at prom!), we have to wait a while to see the bottom half of her — and Kurt’s — outfit. Glee premieres on Sept. 13, but Parker won’t make her first appearance until episode 3.

8 things we learned from 'Glee Project' live chat

It was an emotional night on The Glee Project yesterday, with a talented final three — Ali, Aylin and Blake. After one final group number and a last-chance performance from all three, with tunes of their own choosing, Ryan Murphy was left with one very difficult decision. (Spoiler Alert!) Blake Jenner came away as the winner. After the show, there was a live webchat on Oxygen.com moderated by casting director Robert Ulrich and Glee guest star/Atlanta Housewife NeNe Leakes. Joining them in the studio were Blake, Ali, and Aylin, as well as Lily and Michael. The rest of the contestants popped in via webcam throughout the chat.

EW listened in to round up some of the contenders’ buzziest quotes.

Blake’s thoughts after he won: “[There were] so many emotions at once. I’m sure my mom is crying at home. I’m so grateful.”

Ali’s feelings on the finale: “Watching the finale, I still felt so nervous reliving it. Being a part of The Glee Project has changed my life. We met the most incredible people, and I feel on top of the world, ready to move on to the next thing.” READ FULL STORY

'The Glee Project' winner is...

After 11 weeks of competition, Ali, Blake, and Aylin were the final three contestants going into the Glee Project finale, and casting director Robert promised the trio that there would be only one winner. At the end of the hour, with final last-chance performances from all three, Ryan Murphy made up his mind. The winner of a seven-episode arc on Glee was (SPOILER ALERT!)…Blake! And yes, unlike last year, he was the only winner.

Murphy pointed out that it certainly wasn’t an easy decision, and going into tonight, it seemed like Blake was a bit of an underdog — both Ali and Aylin were buzzier names. The judges — as well as guest mentors such as Darren Criss (Team Ali) and Amber Riley (Team Aylin) — seemed to go back and forth between all three. But in the end, a newly vulnerable Blake, who wrote and read an emotional poem after his last-chance performance, walked away with the gig.

Did the right person win The Glee Project? Vote below, and stay tuned on EW.com for more Glee Project wrap-ups later today.

This Week on Stage: 'Bring It On' waves its spirit stick on Broadway

A high-flying, basket-tossing new musical based on the 2000 teen cheerleader comedy Bring It On took an unusual (backward-somersaulting) path to its Broadway opening this week. Instead of launching a national tour after a splashy New York run, the energetic tuner (which is only loosely based on the Kirsten Dunst film, plot-wise) played in 13 cities starting last November before bowing on the Great White Way. In my B+ review, I noted the youthful cast and a score, by Tom Kitt (Next to Normal) and Lin-Manuel Miranda (In the Heights), with lyrics by Miranda and Amanda Green (High Fidelity), that actually “sounds like it was composed in this century.”

Also on Broadway, it’s the final curtain this weekend for three shows: Fela!, a short-run musical revival that has been doing anemic box office; Harvey, the comedy revival ending its limited summer run so star Jim Parsons can return to L.A. to shoot The Big Bang Theory; and Memphis, the 2010 Tony-winning musical that is expected to recoup its $12 million investment this weekend after 30 previews and 1,166 performances over the course of nearly three years. (At that rate, imagine how long it might take Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark to break even.) READ FULL STORY

'Glee' star Amber Riley to make NYC stage debut in 'Cotton Club Parade'

In a move that seems fitting, Glee star Amber Riley is taking her pipes to the Great White Way: The actress will join the cast of Duke Ellington’s Cotton Club Parade, which will return to New York City Center for a just a few dates, from November 14-18, as a part of the city’s annual Encores! series. The role marks the New York stage debut for Riley.

Cotton Club Parade is a revue-style show that celebrates Ellington’s reign at the famed Harlem nightclub through the ’20s and ’30s. The stage show is just like the shows that were in the club during its heydey, including singers, dancers, and variety acts, with songs by famed jazz composers like Jimmy McHugh and Dorothy Fields (“I Can’t Give You Anything But Love”), Harold Arlen (“Stormy Weather”), and, naturally, Ellington (“Rockin’ in Rhythm”).

The show opened at City Center last November for a short, six-performance run. Cotton Club Parade will again be directed and choreographed by Warren Carlyle, with music direction by Wynton Marsalis. The rest of the cast includes past stars like Tony-nominee Brandon Victor Dixon (The Color Purple), Jared Grimes (Twist), and Tony-winner Adriane Lenox (Doubt).
