Hey All! Time Out New York has some fun photos with the cast of New York Spring Spectacular some of which include Derek. Be sure to check them out. I can never get enough of the spring colors.
And this is a good read from New York.com. They follow Laura Benanti for a day. Here is what she said about Derek and the cast….
I’m a fast walker. It’s my exercise. I got to Radio City Music Hall and I did our matinee. At this point, we had been doing performances since Thursday, so I was a little bit tired. It was probably the most in my body I had felt doing this show. When you get a few under your belt it just gets a little bit easier. So I had fun. The Rockettes are incredible. They’re like superheroes. They’re artists, but they’re athletes. They have an incredible work ethic. They’re really diligent and egoless. Their whole thing is precision and unity, and being part of a whole. They’re just really wonderful people. And Derek Hough is a sweetheart. He is so energetic and working so hard and never complains. He just really has a good heart. And Warren Carlyle, our director and choreographer, has a huge task in front of him that he’s taken on with such aplomb. He’s incredible.
She described Derek so well, didn’t she?!! Also, I think we have posted this video below before, but, it looks like it might have been edited with more of Derek playing his part in the show? If not, it’s still fun to watch again. Thanks to Elmari for the heads up!
So, here’s to the official “opening” of the show tomorrow night. It will be fun to see Derek sings and dances more? For tickets, see this link. GO FOR IT, DEREK!
