Corbin Bleu suits up for opening night of his new Broadway musical, Holiday Inn, at Studio 54 in New York City on Thursday night (October 6).
The 27-year-old actor plays Ted in the musical, which centers on Jim, who leaves the bright lights of show business behind to settle down on his farmhouse in Connecticut, but he quickly discovers life isn’t the same without a bit of song and dance and that his farmhouse is boring.
Then, when he meets Linda, a spirited schoolteacher with talent, they turn the farmhouse into a fabulous inn with dazzling performances to celebrate each holiday, from Thanksgiving to the Fourth of July.
“I think the main intimidation was the dancing,” Corbin recently shared with EW about stepping into Fred Astaire‘s shoes. Fred played the role in the 1942 movie.
He added, “When you watch Fred dance, it makes everything look so easy. He just glides. And I think that was my main focus and goal with approaching the choreography, which was to make sure it was in my body enough and to make sure that it didn’t seem like it was work.”
