Neil Haskell live and in person. In a small theater. I am so there.
The So You Think You Can Dance third place finisher will join the Off-Broadway cast of Altar Boyz on April 22. The show, playing at New World Stages, is about a boy-band whose goal is to spread the word of God. Haskell will play the role of Luke, joining current cast members Michael Kadin Craig, Jay Garcia, Ryan J Ratliff and Ryan Strand.
It won't be Neil's first appearance on the New York stage -- he previously appeared in the ill-advised Twyla Tharp/Bob Dylan musical The Times They Are A-Changing. I actually saw the show and remember Neil well -- admittedly more for his cute-cute-cute face than for his dancing.
Can he sing? Who cares!
