Interviewer: When you performed Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream,” you said it was the song that changed your life. Can you elaborate on that?
Darren: Do I really need to? I was a struggling actor, a part-time composer, and all of a sudden they put me in a blazer, slick my hair back, and give me a Katy Perry song on a hit show, and a year and a half later I’m on Broadway. So, yes, it’s the song that changed my life.
