You all remember Will Wingfield? Debbie Allen’s protege on Season 4’s So You Think You Can Dance? Many of you felt it was a travesty he didn’t make the finals that season. Will’s doing just fine–he just landed a role on Broadway:
Will Wingfield, a contestant on FOX-TV’s So You Think You Can Dance, will take over the role of Graffiti Pete in the Broadway musical In the Heights, at the Richard Rodgers Theatre, beginning on August 26. He replaces Seth Stewart in the role.
The show is directed by Thomas Kail, with choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler. Featuring music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, and a book by Quiara AlegrÃƒ a Hudes, In the Heights is about a vibrant and tight-knit community at the top of the island of Manhattan, and focuses on the hopes and dreams of three generations as they struggle to forge an identity in a neighborhood on the brink of transition. In The Heights is the winner of four 2008 Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
