Have you been watching Glee this season? If so, you may have noticed quite a few So You Think You Can Dance stars, and if you haven’t been watching, you may want to start!
Every time I catch a musical in Los Angeles, Season 3 finalist/Season 7 and 8 All-Star Neil Haskell leaps on to the stage. You might remember that I unexpectedly caught him as Snowboy in West Side Story earlier this year. On Saturday night, I attended a new musical comedy called Bring It On: The Musical, and I was delighted to see that Neil had a large role as Steven, the main character’s boyfriend. Not only does he dance in this part, but he also shows off his acting and singing chops! I was also excited to see Season 6’s Ariana DeBose in a major role as Nautica. When I attended Vegas week during Season 6, I witnessed Ariana’s mesmerizing solo and was bummed when she was eliminated during the first week of the show. Seeing Ariana dance, sing, and act in Bring It On: The Musical made me realize she’s really found her niche in musical theater. To top it off, the show’s Director and Choreographer is Andy Blankenbuehler, who choreographed two Broadway routines on So You Think You Can Dance’s 4th season and 6th season.
UPDATE: Hometown auditions have wrapped. Thanks to all who came out and made it a huge success!
