Darren Criss, who plays gay student Blaine Anderson on Glee, presented producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron with Outfest's Visionary Award on Saturday.

Zadan and Meron, the producers of the NBC musical drama Smash, were honored at Outfest's 8th annual Legacy Awards at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles.

Other projects for the duo include the big screen adaptations of Chicago and Hairspray and Broadway's Promises, Promises and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Zadan and Meron will also produce the upcoming 85th annual Academy Awards.

Criss made his Broadway debut on January 1, succeeding Daniel Radcliffe in the role of corporate ladder-climbing J. Pierrepont Finch in the revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.

At the event, Criss performed Happy to Keep his Dinner Warm, a number from How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.

“I heard this song [as a youth] and said 'That's great! Such a bummer I'll never be able to sing it though, because it's a girl's song, a very popular one at that,'” Criss said in his introduction. “I didn't know that fifteen years later I would be on a television show where pronouns didn't really matter, and I could sing all kinds of female or male songs – it didn't really matter. And I think it's very apropos and very serendipitous of the political climate we're in right now, socio-politically.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
