Corbin Bleu is headed back to Broadway…as Jesus!
The 23-year-old actor will take over the lead role in Godspell from Hunter Parrish.
Hunter‘s final performance as Jesus will be on Sunday, April 15th — as he’s headed back to Los Angeles to begin filming the eighth season of the hit Showtime series Weeds.
“I know Corbin Bleu has a special affinity for GODSPELL, and with his great talent, charisma, and radiant energy, I know he will be terrific in the show,” showrunner Stephen Schwartz shared with BroadwayWorld. “I am very much looking forward to working with him and seeing him as our new Jesus.”
“Excited to welcome @corbinbleu to the @BwayGodspell fam. Who knew we’d reunite again on the big stage?! You will be missed @HunterParrish,” new costar Anna Maria Perez de Tagle tweeted.
