Darius de Haas (born 29 September 1968) is an American stage actor and singer.

He was born in Chicago and raised in a musical family—his father is bassist Eddie de Haas and his mother Geraldine was one of the Bey sisters of the musical trio Andy and The Bey Sisters. He is especially noted for his extremely wide vocal range.

He appeared in the Broadway productions of Rent, Kiss of the Spider Woman, with Chita Rivera and Vanessa L. Williams, Carousel, and Marie Christine (with Audra McDonald) and the Paper Mill Playhouse cast of Children of Eden, with Stephanie Mills. He won an Obie Award for his performance in the title role in Diedre Murray's "Running Man" directed by Diane Paulus. In recent years he has become known as a concert artist, having notably performed and recorded the music of Billy Strayhorn and Stevie Wonder. His latest acting project has been playing Jesus in The Alliance Theater's re-imagining of Webber-Rice's "Jesus Christ Superstar" (re-titled "JCS Gospel").
