I’m so proud that 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… I’m so proud to have been part of this live musical production. #Congratulations and to the whole cast and crew.
Thank you to everyone for all the Superstar & support! The reviews and ratings for the show have been stellar!
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.
