Corbin Bleu will take the stage tonight as Seaweed Stubbs in Hairspray at the Hollywood Bowl.
In anticipation of his debut, the 22-year-old actor chatted with Playbill.com and revealed some little known facts about himself. Did you know…
– That Hair holds his heart? “I would have loved to see an original production of Hair in the 60′s in the middle of the revolution it was fighting for. Plus I would get to see Ben Vereen, or Tim Curry on the West End, or get to see Kenny Ortega do his thing as Berger in San Fran.”
– That LA is like a giant theme park for him? “Since I live in LA where you pretty much live in your car, and I’m constantly driving over hills or canyons, I often play the Indiana Jones theme song to pass the time. It makes me feel like I’m on the ride at Disneyland.”
– That he almost has a sandwich named after him? “I used to have this grilled ham and cheese sandwich from this place Patzeria right across the street almost three times a week. Other people from the theatre started going there and saying ‘I’ll have the Corbin,’ and the guys knew exactly what to make them.”
