Tony winner Ben Platt has released a music video for the track “Older” on his debut solo album, Sing to Me Instead.
The video was directed by Nick Lieberman. And for astute Broadway fans out there, yes, Elizabeth Davis (Tony nominee for Once) is featured in the video.
Platt launches his concert tour in May, kicking off in Chicago May 3 and closing in Los Angeles May 24. Platt will play New York City’s Beacon Theatre May 14.
Platt broke out as Benji in the 2012 hit film Pitch Perfect and that same year was cast as Elder Cunningham in the Chicago production of The Book of Mormon. He subsequently transferred to the Broadway production of Mormon in 2014. He created the role of Evan Hansen in Dear Evan Hansen from early readings through the out-of-town tryout at Arena Stage in Washington, D.C., to Off-Broadway’s Second Stage, and, finally, Broadway. Along with the 2017 Tony Award, Platt earned the Distinguished Performance Award by the Drama League and was the youngest performer ever to do so.
