If you are a certain age, you know that Darren Criss made his name on the hit show Glee. Or you may also know that he recently starred in American Crime Story, and the Broadway revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch. And he's also the founder of a Broadway and showtune party called ElsieFest, which returns to New York in October (featuring friend of the show, Alan Cumming).

Speaking of that sappy Scotsman, Cumming was also featured in our Magic of Disney Extra, in which Darren Criss admitted to being a bit of a Stephen Schwartz fan.

Turns out, Darren's favorite Disney composer (and Glee) led him to a beautiful friendship with a legendary member of the original Rat Pack... Listen to find out which Stephen Schwartz song from Pippen brought Darren together with the force that is Shirley MacLaine!

Want more? Have you heard the Magic of Disney Extra and Darren Criss's longer conversation with Julian Fleisher, The Song is The Song, in which Darren compared Cole Porter to Carly Rae Jepson? What?! You haven't? Stop reading this and GO LISTEN NOW!!! 

And if you have already listened to those, there's plenty more at the Naked American Archives. Please tell your friends, tell your local podcatchers, tell your teachers, and tell your parents.
