American Idol Season 5 winner Taylor Hicks is set to take the stage as Teen Angel in Broadway’s GREASE as the musical makes its way to Durham.
Taylor Hicks beat out North Carolina’s own Kellie Pickler and Chris Daughtry to win the singing competition.
Taylor stopped by NBC17 to talk about his role and about his new album “The Distance” which was released in March. Scroll down to see the full interview.
“I get to play a little harmonica and add a little R&B style to it, which is fun,” Hicks said about performing the song “Beauty School Dropout”.
GREASE was nominated for 2008 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical and was Time Magazine’s 2007 pick for #1 musical of the year.
The stage at Durham’s Performing Arts Center will be filled with poodle skirts, Pink Ladies, and T-birds and of course all of your favorite tunes.
The show will open October 6 and run until October 11. Ticket prices range from $25 to $70.
