It has been a really long day today…below is everything I could find on the net from today related to Hairspray… We are only 5 days away!! Be sure to take a look to all the media. Great interviews/features on Derek and a funny video with interviews of all the cast. Enjoy!
- First, Parade Magazine has an interview/chat with Derek from the Press Conference day. It’s a great one so be sure to check it out. Below just a short part of it…
What it’s like living in the world of [choreographer] Jerry Mitchell?
It’s great. For me, I’ve been just watching and learning. I think Jerry’s so great. He’s so fun to work with, so positive and he’s very in tune with the storytelling of it. He’s not just about the movements, the dancing. He’s very much in there with “hey make sure you do this because it tells the story in this way.”
But I’ve also been watching, too, because it’s on my bucket list to choreograph a Broadway show eventually, so I’ve been observing and seeing how he does it. He’s a veteran. He’s very accomplished, so it’s been great.
- The Salt Lake Tribune also has a beautiful feature for Derek. Again, a very short part of the article. Check The Salt Lake Tribune for more… I have to say, I am glad that it finally worked out and yes, this is a perfect role for Derek 🙂
Hough had been talking with executive producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan about several projects for years, but nothing worked out — until now.
“This is just one of those things that made perfect sense,” he said. “It’s a perfect role for me.”
- The newspaper “Desert Star Weekly” from Palm Springs has a feature for the show. Click on the picture below to read 🙂 Us Weekly, as well as TV Guide include features about the show… The cast and the show are literally everywhere these days and we couldn’t be happier for this! Huge thanks to Jennie for all her help 🙂
- And last, KING5 was also on the red carpet during the press day and they talked to the cast. You can watch the full video they released below.
