In honor of Valentine’s Day, Broadway smash Dear Evan Hansen released a special new music video of “Only Us.”
The video stars Ben Levi Ross and Taylor Trensch, the real-life couple of performers who have both played the title role in the musical. Trensch took over the role on Broadway February 6, 2018 and recently played his last performance earlier this year; Ross began as an understudy for all three young male characters in the Broadway production before taking on Evan Hansen full-time on the first national tour, which launched in September.
In the show, “Only Us” is sung by Evan and Zoe. Here, the two men sing the love ballad by Tony winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul to each other. The video showcases a new arrangement of the song by the show’s Tony– and Grammy-winning orchestrator Alex Lacamoire and features pianist Austin Cook, guitarist Matt Sangiovanni, bassist Matt Rubano, and violinist Mona Tian.
Broadway’s Dear Evan Hansen, written by Tony winner Steven Levenson and directed by four-time Tony nominee Michael Greif, currently plays at the Music Box Theatre with newcomer Andrew Barth Feldman as their new Evan. The musical won six 2017 Tony Awards including Best Musical.
