Dancing With The Stars’ Derek Hough is taking his talents to Broadway and stepping into Gene Kelly’s shoes for his role in Singin’ in the Rain. In November, the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris announced that its version of Singin’ in the Rain, which opened in March 2015, would move to Broadway.

Harvey Weinstein, who will be producing the show, announced Hough’s involvement at The Weinstein Company’s annual pre-Oscars bash last weekend. Hough also debuted his twist on the classic song from the play the same night.

Hough has had his fair share of performing experience from Dancing With The Stars and the 2006 West End production of Footloose.

The original stage adaptation of the play opened on Broadway in 1983 and ran for about a year.
