Will Derek Hough be part of “Bye Bye Birdie” with Jennifer Lopez?

Yesterday, Kristyn Burtt attended The Art & Artistry of Hairspray Live! where she talked with cast and crew of the show who were also there.

In an interview with Executive Producer Craig Zadan, she asked about the upcoming “Bye Bye Birdie” with Jennifer Lopez and if Derek will be part of this musical as well. The answer might not be positive but, Craig says some amazing things about Derek! Be sure to listen to him.

Kristyn also shared a photo with Derek’s wardrobe from the exhibit. Thank you SO much Kristyn for these! ❤
