Darren Criss on Glee’s Move to NYC, Being a ‘Nerdy Rock Musician’ & Wanting to Return to the Stage

first_img Darren Criss Kristin Chenoweth Criss also dished about the show’s upcoming special two-part 100th episode, which will see the return of a slew of favorite characters, including Kristin Chenoweth’s April Rhodes, Gwyneth Paltrow’s Holly Holiday, Dianna Agron’s Quinn Fabray, Amber Riley’s Mercedes Jones and more. “We had a great dance rehearsal last week and it was the first time I’d been in the same room as all those people. It was great.” View Comments When word got out that FOX’s hit musical dramedy Glee was moving to the Big Apple for the rest of the fifth season, the only thought that popped into our heads was, “So that means more Darren Criss in NYC, right?” Call us biased, but the City That Never Sleeps should just be nicknamed The City That Needs More Criss. Luckily, our favorite heartthrob opened up about what’s in store for Glee fans, what his long-in-the-works album will sound like and, most importantly, if he’s going to come back to Broadway. Criss told that he hopes his Glee co-star Lea Michele’s upcoming debut album Louder is a smash hit because he thinks she’s “a superstar.” As for his own debut album? “Mine will be a little different, it’s a different process,” he said. “I’m the nerdy rock musician who wants to make my nerdy rock and roll so I don’t know if it will be the same fanfare, but I’d like to finish it.” Yet, the How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying alum miiiight just have another plan for 2014… “Or do another stage show or do a movie. I’ll take whatever they give me.” WE’LL GIVE YOU WHATEVER YOU WANT. In an interview with, Criss said he’d “love” to shoot Glee in NYC and that he thinks the upcoming move will make a lot of sense for most of the characters—especially for Blaine and Kurt (Chris Colfer). “For Blaine, if he moves to New York…I would assume they’re going to live together,” he said. “Call me crazy, but when you get engaged to somebody usually that’s a good idea. So that will present a whole new structure to their relationship.” Star Files Lea Michelelast_img read more

DesignPro Advances SEENEOH Trials Through BlueGift Support

first_imgIrish company DesignPro Renewables said it has achieved new performance milestones with its hydrokinetic turbine as part of ongoing testing at the SEENEOH test site in Bordeaux, France. The turbine generates energy from flowing water and has been deployed at a dedicated test site on the River Garonne since September 2018.The design, build and initial deployment was supported through funding from the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme which enabled the device to be tested for a full 12 months.In September 2019, the 25Kw unit was due to be removed and decommissioned as the H2020 support had ended, however the new funding and support through the BlueGift programme has allowed the device to stay on trial for a further 12 months.According to DesignPro, this additional testing period has enabled the company to implement upgrades and improvements to the unit, including a new Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) system developed in conjunction with Mitsubishi Electric Ireland.The system is said to have delivered significantly improved performance results just 2 weeks ago on site and marked a milestone for the team.The BlueGift support is specifically aimed at testing the longer-term performance of the device, looking at elements such as wear and tear, replacement parts and operations and maintenance requirements as well as overall survivability of the unit.Vincent Mc Cormack, innovation manager at DesignPro, said: “When you have put so much work, time and resources into developing and building a full-scale turbine it makes sense that you get as much value and learnings from it as possible. This support under BlueGift has allowed us to keep the device in for an additional 12 months at SEENEOH, granting us the opportunity to test the device more rigorously thereby getting us one step closer to having a market-ready product and instilling more confidence for investment and partners.”Vincent Laroque, president of SEENEOH, said: “We are delighted with the renewed confidence of DesignPro Renewables to extend its trials. Europe, via the INTERREG Atlantic Area programme, is offering a tool that is particularly suited to this sector by providing financial support to test sites so that they can open their doors under advantageous conditions for technology developers.”To remind, DesignPro also completed the deployment and testing of its 60kW (DPR60) turbine at Kirkwall in the Orkney Islands, Scotland in conjunction with Leask Marine.last_img read more

Nadal was looking to strip back his schedule following success at the US Open. The world No 2 needed four hours and 50 minutes to beat Daniil Medvedev in a grueling final on Sunday. Such a difficult battle left Nadal struggling to get changed in the dressing room in the aftermath. The 18-time Grand Slam winner was set to return to action alongside Roger Federer at the Laver Cup next weekend. But Nadal was considering pulling out of the Shanghai Masters, which starts on October 5, to ensure he is fresh for the Paris Masters later that month. “It’s hard for me to tell my plans right now,” Nadal told Spanish media during a conference call. “I shot off after the final to the plane and I didn’t have time to talk to the team. “They arrived later in Palma and I hope that we have a conversation soon. “Anyway, to decide the calendar, I have to wait to see how my body evolves. “The immediate thing is to play the Laver Cup (September 20-22), which is planned. “The next thing I do not know. “Priority objectives from here at the end of the year and also with a view to the next one.
