Derek Hough To Come Broadway With Singin’ in the Rain

Derek Hough To Come Broadway With Singin’ in the Rain

Derek Hough had dreams of stepping into the dancing shoes of Gene Kelly. At his annual pre-Oscar dinner in Beverly Hills on Saturday, producer Harvey Weinstein confirmed that Hough will star as Don Lockwood, the silent screen idol transitioning to talkies, in the upcoming Broadway production of Singin’ in the Rain. Hough performed two numbers from the show as part of the evening’s entertainment. Weinstein announced last fall that he would follow Finding Neverland, his first Broadway venture as lead producer, with a new stage adaptation of the beloved 1952 MGM screen musical, scheduled for the 2016-17 season. The show reportedly is eyeing a January opening date.

Hough previously sang the titled number in a Weinstein production of the Easter Spring Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall last year.
