NEW YORK — The latest winner of TV's "So You Think You Can Dance" has gotten an up-close-and-personal look at one of his prizes — a big Broadway show.
Ricky Ubeda, an 18-year-old from Miami, won the Fox TV contest show on Wednesday and by Friday afternoon met his potential future castmates in "On the Town." He was greeted outside the Lyric Theatre by the company singing "Oh Ricky, you're so fine you're so fine you blow my mind, hey Ricky" and donned a white sailor cap in their honor.
In addition to a $250,000 prize and the dance title, Ubeda won an ensemble part in the musical, which opens next month. First he will tour with the other Season 11 finalists around the country.
