Tag: So You Think You Can Dance (1-10 of 183)

Listen to three exclusive tracks from Broadway's upcoming 'On the Town'

The Bronx is up, the Battery’s down—and smack-dab in the middle, there’s the latest revival of a classic 1944 Comden/Green/Bernstein musical, coming to the newly-renamed Lyric Theatre this fall. (Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark played there previously when it was dubbed the Foxwoods Theatre).

This production of On the Town—a transfer from the acclaimed Barrington Stage Company mounting—has already turned a few heads with its handsome leading trio (Tony Yazbeck, Jay Armstrong Johnson, and Clyde Alves). John Rando (Urinetown) assumes directing duties here; expect plenty of fancy footwork, thanks to choreography by Smash‘s Joshua Bergasse. And keep an eye on the chorus—one spot will go to the winner of this season of So You Think You Can Dance, starting in spring 2015.

The other, less obvious reason you should be watching 'So You Think You Can Dance'

I don’t remember how I got into So You Think You Can Dance, or which episode I watched first. But I do know that after one viewing, I was hooked. As someone who appreciates dances — and thoroughly enjoys a spontaneous dance party — I loved watching the choreographers and contestants work together to craft something memorable. Then there were the judges, whom I immediately enjoyed. But as I continued to watching SYTYCD, the show became about more than just dance. Suddenly, my iPod was benefiting from my addiction as well.

At this point, I’m confident in saying that the hidden reason — my ulterior motive, if you will — for watching this show is the music it’s helped me discover. Every routine needs a song, and if I can give advice to any of you, it’s to stop looking through iTunes for new and exciting artists. Instead, let SYTYCD‘S choreographers do the work for you.

Delta-Holiday-clip.jpg

Okay, so in-flight airline safety video battles are a thing now.

Virgin America today released its new Jon Chu-directed safety video, a sleek and stylish (not to mention incredibly catchy) production number that stars Todrick Hall (the brilliant mind responsible for yesterday’s viral Disney villain mash-up) as a hoofing flight attendant who delivers safety tips — with flair! All your favorite emergency instructions are there, including Oxygen Mask, Flotation Device, and the ever-controversial Electronics Power-Down. Also included in Virgin’s great video: an insane child rapper, a belting nun, a contortionist in the middle seat, and enough choreography to make Adam Shankman cry.
