Had a fantastic time speaking and presenting a workshop at the Grow 2020 event in San Antonio!
So excited to share that Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert won 5 Emmy awards tonight!
Jesus Christ Superstar Live has been nominated for an astonishing 13 Emmy awards! Including Best Director, Best Live Special, Best Leading Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Set Design, Best Costume and more… #Congratulations and to the whole cast and crew.
Directing Tip: ballet 2nd position plié helps you frame your shot. (Ps. Watch talented @damonjgillespie in the premiere of #Rise this Tuesday after This Is Us on NBC)
I loved getting a chance to direct Jennifer Lopez, Derek Hough, Ne-Yo, Jenna Dewan Tatum and some of the best dancers in the world in this promotional piece for World of Dance, but truthfully, I was most excited about getting a chance to work with incredible choreographers Tabitha & Napoleon. I love “NappyTabs!”
Directing Jennifer Hudson…and witnessing the sheer power of her voice everyday is undeniable and incredible.
Nothing beats discovering fresh talent. I had a great time overseeing auditions in Baltimore for a dance role in Hairspray Live. Local news covered the event and unexpectedly grabbed me for a quick live interview!
Part of the fun of working with Harvey Fierstein is the fact that you never quite know what he’s gonna say.
Martin Short and Maya Rudolph have a new show coming to NBC (after America’s Got Talent on Tuesday nights this summer). Working on it has been fun, except for the spitting.
