Derek Hough To Star On Broadway In Singin' In The Rain

Derek Hough is set to star in the upcoming Broadway production of Singin' In the Rain in the role made famous by Gene Kelly in the 1952 movie of the same name.

The musical's producer Harvey Weinstein made the official announcement at the Weinstein Company's annual pre-Oscar dinner at the Montage in Beverly Hills after Hough performed two numbers from the show, including the iconic Singin' In the Rain.

Rumors that the DWTS fan favorite's Broadway gig began last year after Hough performed Singin' In the Rain in Weinstein's New York Spring Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall. The original stage adaptation of Singin' opened on Broadway in 1983 and ran for about a year.

The Weinstein party also included a performance by Zendaya of a song from the current Weinstein-backed Broadway musical Finding Neverland. The guest list for the fancy fete included Jared Leto, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, Matthew Morrison, Christoph Waltz, Nick Jonas, Bryan Cranston, Naomi Campbell, designer Zac Posen, Colin Firth, Ashley Tisdale, Carol director Todd Haynes and Andie MacDowell.
