Well, lookie here, from Variety! Dare we hope? Dare we get excited? Is there any question who would be the PERFECT Gene Kelly in this Broadway show?? Thanks to Linz for the heads up on this one.
Led by Weinstein, the company Weinstein Live Entertainment also produces musical “Finding Neverland” on Broadway as well as the Rockettes’ “New York Spring Spectacular” (which will return next year in a retooled version for summer audiences). Weinstein has also been on the producing team of Broadway titles including “The Producers,” “Billy Elliot,” “August: Osage County” and “Mamma Mia!”
Based on MGM’s 1952 movie musical starring Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds, the 1983 stage adaptation of “Singin’ in the Rain” has a book by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, music by Nacio Herb Brown and lyrics by Arthur Freed. The musical had a year-long Broadway run that began in 1985.
No dates, theater or casting for the 2016 Broadway run have yet been confirmed. The current Chatelet production stars Dan Burton, Daniel Crossley and Clare Halse, among others.

Miss Heidi and I are ready to vote for “TeamCrikey! How about you and MORE THAN EVER!!! And how about we start this morning off with some fun instagrams that you might not have seen yet. Derek reflects on Bindi and the season in one of them. Beautiful! Here’s to tonight! #footprintsinthesand #love #LetThereBeLight #passion #remembrance #neveralone
Okay guys…your last chance this season is coming up tomorrow night. We have a chance to get a Mirror Ball Trophy for the delightful ray of sunshine known as Bindi Irwin. Make more accounts!!
My fear is that so many people are so confident that Bindi is going to win that they won’t vote as hard as they could. It’s times like this when it doesn’t happen – people get complacent and the person everyone thinks is going to win, doesn’t.
So, I’m asking that you not only vote your fingers to the bone tomorrow night, but you remind everyone in your circle, and anyone you see on twitter, that in order for Bindi to win, they have to VOTE. Do it tomorrow night so they won’t forget – during the show even. What often happens in the finale is people are watching and voting for the first time. They will want to know Bindi’s phone number or how to vote online. Vogue and I are so busy during the show, that we need all of you to be our minions! Create a few searches on Twitter – one that says @bindiirwin, one that says @derekhough and two others with just their names – and scan them for people who need help voting. And very politely offer that help by tweeting them a link to the “how to vote” post OR just tweeting them the phone number or web links. Don’t be pushy or obnoxious about it – just be *helpful*. Also, if you open their tweet, you’ll see everyone who responded to them – don’t respond if someone else already has (also watch out for people tweeting wrong numbers). We don’t want to spam anyone, we just want to be helpful. But only people who need help – don’t tweet random people to Vote Bindi – that could get annoying. Help Bindi to the MBT.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – make this about BINDI, not Derek. Derek has more MBTs than any man needs…but Bindi doesn’t. And she deserves to win this one as much as anyone. That only happens is we all pull together and work it out.
