Andrew Barth Feldman plays his final performance in the title role of the Broadway production of Dear Evan Hansen January 26 at the Music Box Theatre. Feldman, who made his Broadway debut in the Tony-winning musical January 30, 2019, will be succeeded by Jordan Fisher, who made his own Broadway debut in 2016 in the Pulitzer Prize-winning Hamilton, starting January 28.
Feldman, the first high school student to play high school student Evan Hansen, won the Best Actor Award at the Jimmy Awards (as the National High School Musical Theatre Awards are more commonly known) for his performance as Frank Abagnale Jr. in Lawrence Woodmere Academy’s production of Catch Me If You Can. Shortly after winning, he found himself auditioning for Dear Evan Hansen, which served as a sponsor at last year’s ceremony.
