Dear Evan Hansen’s departing star, Ben Platt, has teamed up with the show’s incoming title players, Taylor Trensch and Noah Galvin, for a fun, ’70s-inspired music video shot on the streets of New York City. Watch it above.
As previously announced, Platt is set to play his final performance in Dear Evan Hansen November 19. The Broadway show will first welcome The Real O’Neals' Galvin in the title role beginning November 21, followed by Hello, Dolly! star Trensch, who will take over beginning mid-January 2018.
The “Get Away” music video featuring the three performers is directed and edited by Nick Lieberman and produced by Platt. Shot in various neighborhoods in New York City, the video wraps up on the streets of Broadway, and sees Platt parting ways with the two actors as they head toward the Music Box Theatre—home of Dear Evan Hansen.
Dear Evan Hansen features a score by the Tony- and Oscar-winning songwriting team of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (Dogfight, A Christmas Story), a book by Tony winner Steven Levenson (Masters of Sex), choreography by Danny Mefford (Fun Home), and direction by multiple Tony nominee Michael Greif (Rent, Next to Normal, If/Then).
Original cast members Laura Dreyfuss, Tony winner Rachel Bay Jones, Jennifer Laura Thompson, Tony nominee Mike Faist, Michael Park, and Will Roland have all extended their contracts and will remain with the musical through May 2018. Kristolyn Lloyd will depart in March.
