NEW YORK (AP) — The newest winner of TV’s “So You Think You Can Dance” is ready for his Broadway close-up.
Ricky Ubeda, a 19-year-old from Miami, won the Fox TV contest show in September and will join the ensemble of Broadway’s “On the Town” at the Lyric Theatre starting Feb. 27.
“I’m super-pumped,” said Ubeda on Wednesday from frozen Fargo, North Dakota, where his tour with the other Season 11 finalists has ended. “Anything warmer than here,” he joked. “It’s in the negatives.”
Ubeda has seen rehearsals of “On the Town” and called it “huge,” “amazing” and “some of the hardest dancing on Broadway.”
