Criss was reaching out to touch the hand of an enthusiastic audience member when the woman grabbed his hand and wouldn’t let go, pulling him off the stage.
At first it looks innocent enough, but once you realize that there is an iron gate in front of the crowd, separating the stage from the audience, it’s easy to see that if she had continued to pull on his hand, he might have fallen forward on the audience level and hit his head.
Here’s the video basically cued up… pay attention around 3:00 in when the cast approaches the front of the stage. (You may need to click before that time since it all happens very quickly.) Then, read below for his twitter response.
Criss took to twitter with the same level of good natured charm that he brings to the show.
