Bleu to star as Jesus on Broadway

The singer/actor will take over from Weeds star Hunter Parrish, who will bow out as the son of God after his final performance on 15 April (12).

Composer Stephen Schwartz, who revived the production last year (11), says, “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. I am very much looking forward to working with him and seeing him as our new Jesus.”

Bleu made his Broadway debut in 2010 after landing the lead role in popular musical In the Heights.
