You might recognize the protagonist in Anything Goes at Arena Stage. Corbin Bleu leads the cast as Billy Crocker, the main character in this classic Cole Porter musical. It’s not his first time co-starring in a musical rom-com. He shot to stardom as Chad Danforth in High School Musical, a made-for-TV movie that eventually spawned a sequel on the big screen. Bleu proves he has the chops for live musical theater as the lead role in Anything Goes.
Watch him and his costars glide across the stage as they tell the tale of Billy Crocker and Hope Harcourt, an heiress on whom he’s developed a hopeless crush. After all, she’s engaged to wealthy Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. Billy sneaks aboard a ship from NYC to London in an effort to thwart their impending marriage. Billy and his ragtag team of dancers and singers make a compelling (and entertaining) case. Tickets start around $100.
