Corbin Bleu became a household name as Chad Danforth in Disney's smash hit television movie "High School Musical," and later made his Broadway debut in 2010 as bodega-owner Usnavi in the Tony Award-winning musical "In the Heights." He recently returned to the Great White Way to star as Jesus in the revival of the legendary musical "Godspell" at Circle in the Square. TheaterMania recently spoke with Bleu about taking on this demanding role.

"I knew the music, but have never seen a stage production until I was in New York a couple of months ago and Jim Caruso took me to see this production and introduced me to Danny Goldstein, the director. That's when I found out that they were thinking about me for the role of Jesus...[The rehearsal process] was two weeks, which was the same that I had for 'In The Heights.' It is such a short amount of time. I worked with the director, musical director, and dance captain. And then I got about eight hours of rehearsal with the full cast before my first performance."
