Big news, GodspellBlog readers!
When we cast Hunter Parrish in Godspell last summer, we all knew there was a chance he’d have to leave us a little early to rejoin his “Weeds” family.
And, well, that day is almost here. Hunter Parrish’s last performance will be on Sunday, April 15th at 7:30 PM. Or, to put it in GodspellBlog-ese . . . in 23 days.
We’ll miss Hunter like crazy . . . but we also couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome . . . drumroll please . . .
Corbin was one of the stars of “High School Musical,” and he also had an incredible run as the lead in In The Heights on Broadway. He’s a magnificent talent, and we’re thrilled that he’ll be joining us. He came to see the show a few months ago, and, well, we’re happy it affected him the same way it has affected all of us and everyone that has come to see it.
Listen to what Stephen Schwartz had to say . . . “I know Corbin 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.”
As you can see, it’s going to be an exciting April.
Come see Hunter Parrish now through April 15th.
And get tickets for Corbin starting April 17th.
See you at the theater (and still wearing my red hat . . . although I had to get a new one because I wore the other one so much it would be kinda gross if I didn’t).
