Last night at the Circle in the Square Theatre, Broadway and "Weeds" star Hunter Parrish ended his run as Jesus in the first-ever Broadway revival of Stephen Schwartz's GODSPELL. The show welcomes a new leading man-stage and screen star Corbin Bleu (Disney's "High School Musical," Broadway's In the Heights)-to the starring role. Parrish now returns to Los Angeles to begin filming the eighth season of the hit Showtime series "Weeds."
