Here's another reason to pay a visit to the Big Apple next year.
Derek Hough is putting his dancing shoes to good use by starring in Broadway's "Singin' In the Rain" next January.
The "Dancing with the Stars" pro will take on the role of Don Lockwood, who was made famous by Gene Kelly in the 1952 movie.
"Proud to be apart of another adventure with The Weinsten Company. #Broadway #singingintherainmusical #classic #2017," Derek posted on Instagram on Feb. 29.
The musical's producer Harvey Weinstein made the announcement at the Weinstein Company's annual pre-Oscar dinner in Beverly Hills, California on Feb. 27 after Derek performed two numbers from the show including the classic, "Singin' In the Rain."
The 30-year-old sang the musical's title song last year as well with the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall in the show, "New York Spring Spectacular."
When Derek first accepted the role of Jack in the "New York Spring Spetacular," he expressed his excitement and love for performing in New York.
"I am ecstatic that I'll be able to extend my passion for performing to the Great Stage of Radio City Music Hall in New York Spring Spectacular," he said in a statement. "Performing at Radio City Music Hall in a show that celebrates everything that is beloved about New York City is a dream. I can't wait to show fans this production…it's going to be like nothing they've seen me in before."
He has also previously appeared on Broadway in 2010 as a guest star in "Burn the Floor" and played the lead in the musical stage version of "Footloose" in London's West End in 2006.
As for "Singin' in the Rain," it has history on Broadway as the original stage adaptation opened in 1983, and it ran for about a year.
While Derek will get to show himself off as a triple threat, his sister Julianne Hough was already able to when she recently sang, acted and danced on Fox's "Grease:Live" on Jan. 31.
We can't wait to see Derek take Broadway by storm!
