Derek Hough Talks NYC While In Rehearsal For NEW YORK SPRING SPECTACULAR

Derek Hough talks NYC while preparing for his new gig!

DANCING WITH THE STARS standout Derek Hough was recently announced as the star of the new Radio City Music Hall extravaganza titled NEW YORK SPRING SPECTACULAR and a new look at the performer discussing his love of NYC and teaming with the legendary leggy Rockettes is now available to view.

The official description of Radio City Music Hall's NEW YORK SPRING SPECTACULAR is as follows: "In New York Spring Spectacular, Derek Hough has been cast as Jack, a man with a special mission who will receive an eternal reward if he's able to help Bernie keep his position as a New York City tour guide. Bernie's job is in jeopardy when Jenna, played by Laura Benanti, reveals her plan to take the tour company virtual. Hough will be joining an all-star cast in New York Spring Spectacular including Tony winning-actress Laura Benanti starring as the female lead, Jenna, Whoopi Goldberg voicing the Statue of Liberty, Bella Thorne as the voice of the Alice in Wonderland Statue, with celebrity cameos by Carmelo Anthony, Donald Trump, Martha Stewart, Henrik Lundqvist and many more. New York Spring Spectacular, the all-new show at Radio City Music Hall, takes audiences on a whirlwind adventure across New York City while telling an inspiring and hopeful narrative about three New Yorkers who change each other's lives in unexpectedly wonderful ways. Writer Joshua Harmon has fashioned a heartwarming and wondrous journey through New York City. Bernie has been giving old fashioned tours of New York for decades, but his company was just bought by Jenna, a whipsmart techie with plans to fire Bernie and turn his tours into a virtual reality wonderland. Bernie's in trouble. Enter Jack, a spirited young man with a secret agenda of his own: If he can help Bernie keep his job, Jack will get an eternal reward. With the assistance of the legendary Rockettes, and guest appearances by some of your favorite New Yorkers, Bernie takes Jenna-- and the audience-- on the tour of a lifetime, from the Statue of Liberty to Central Park to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. By the last stop of this whirlwind adventure, these three people will be forever changed, and they will never look at the city the same way again. Bursting with invigorating new Rockettes dance numbers, incredible 3D special effects, sophisticated large-scale puppetry and an exciting soundtrack of original songs, classics and pop hits, the New York Spring Spectacular is as rejuvenating, energetic and uplifting as spring itself - and a reminder that while things may change, nothing can take away the timeless magic and romance of the one and only New York City! The New York Spring Spectacular is led by Director and Choreographer Warren Carlyle."
