Derek Hough to dance onto Broadway in “Singin’ in the Rain” revival


singing-in-the-rainAfter nearly ten years, and a record six mirror ball trophy wins, Derek Hough is taking time off from Dancing With the Stars to do some dancing on Broadway.

The two-time Emmy winning choreographer will be stepping into Gene Kelly’s shoes in an all-new revival of “Singin’ in the Rain,” which is set to open in January 2017.

As if preparing for a leading role on Broadway isn’t enough, Hough is also promoting his new book Taking the Lead: Lessons from a Life in Motion.

California Life’s Concetta DeLuco spoke with Hough about his book, what keeps him moving forward and his new partnership with Hilton called “Our Stage, Your Story.”
