Darren Criss began his musical career at the age of five when he began learning to play the violin. He later mastered five other instruments and began writing his own songs as a teenager. Darren also began acting early on and he graduated from the University of Michigan in 2009 with a B.F.A. in Theater Performance. Although no stranger to the stage, it was with his co-owned production company that he produced A Very Potter Musical, a comedy for fans of the original Harry Potter. In little over two years it has been viewed by over two million people on YouTube, with the first act getting over eight million views.

Darren joined the highly popular television series “Glee” during the second season, playing Blaine Anderson. His character is an openly gay student from the rival school Dalton Academy.

Carrying on with the Harry Potter theme, Darren replaced Daniel Radcliffe in the Broadway production of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. During the time Darren was the lead the musical garnered over $4 million dollars.

Although we believe his net worth is going to go up much more, we currently estimate that Darren Criss has a net worth of $1.6 million (GBP 1 million).

So how much is $1.3 million dollars anyway?

Let’s say Darren wanted to have some fun with his friends. He could purchase 43,500 tickets to Six Flags Magic Mountain amusement park. That’s a lot of fun. If that isn’t practical, he could take 100 friends and have enough left over for pay for their airfare to Japan where they could all stay at the Disney World Resort for four months.

If amusement parks aren’t his kind of fun, he could always be thoughtful and opt to purchase some of his closest friends brand new Cadillac Escapades. At a base price of $65,000 he could afford to give his 25 closest friends a great new ride.

While it seems a new car for 20 of your closest friends would be a sweet gesture, if he decided to buy a new ride for himself, he could afford only four new Lamborghini Aventadors.
