OUTFEST, the world's leading organization dedicated to showcasing, protecting and nurturing LGBT film imagery and artistry, just honored award winning producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron at the 8th annual Legacy Awards on October 13.
Glee star Darren Criss, who starred in Zadan and Meron's Broadway production of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, presented the award to them, and while he was there he also sang a song that he never got to perform in the hit revival- 'Happy to Keep His Dinner Warm.' Check out the performance below!
