Hough, who will star in a Weinstein production of “Singing in the Rain” on Broadway, gave the crowd a sneak peek of the songs “Moses Supposes” and “Singing in the Rain”(naturally) tunes from the classic musical.

Among those attending the party were John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, tennis star Roger Federer, actors Colin Firth and Christoph Waltz, among others. Scandal’s Kerry Washington and Lady Gaga showed up near midnight.

Hough said the choreography is very much still in the workshop stage, and the stage in the Montage dining room didn’t offer much of a chance to show his Gene Kelly moves.

The Hollywood Reporter: Derek Hough to Star on Broadway in “Singing in the Rain”

I’m still so excited I can’t stand it. 🙂 The Hollywood Report has a nice article on Singing in the Rain:

Producer Harvey Weinstein confirmed the casting news at his annual pre-Oscar dinner, after Hough performed two numbers from the classic musical.

Derek Hough will step 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, a 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.

Hough unofficially auditioned for the role early last year when he sang the musical’s title song, accompanied by a troupe of tap-dancing Rockettes in yellow raincoats and galoshes, in the Weinstein-produced New York Spring Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall. The Dancing With the Stars regular previously appeared on Broadway in 2010 as a guest star in the ballroom compilation Burn the Floor. He played the lead in the stage version of Footloose in London’s West End in 2006.
