For the first time ever, Julianne Hough will be making her Broadway debut. The multi-talented dancer, actress, and singer has shockingly never appeared on Broadway…until now.

She has spent years on our TV screens on Dancing With The Stars, as well as her films Footloose, Rock of Ages, and Safe Haven, among others.

She also starred as Sandy in Grease Live! in 2016 alongside Broadway veteran Aaron Tviet.

Hough has landed a starring role in a brand-new Broadway comedy entitled POTUS: Or, Behind Every Great Dumbass Are Seven Women Trying to Keep Him Alive. 

The play, according to its website, is “a riotous comedy about the women in charge of the man in charge of the free world.”

The website also says that the premise of the show is as follows:

“When the President unwittingly spins a PR nightmare into a global crisis, the seven brilliant and beleaguered women he relies upon most will risk life, liberty, and the pursuit of sanity to keep the Commander in Chief out of trouble.”

Vanessa Williams stars as FLOTUS alongside a star-studded cast including Lilli Cooper, Lea Delaria, Rachel Dratch, Suzy Nakamura, Julie White, and of course, Julianne Hough.
