Jordan Fisher looks every bit the part in this first promo picture for his upcoming role in Broadway’s Dear Evan Hansen!
Beginning Tuesday, January 28th for a limited 16-week engagement, the 25-year-old talented entertainer will star as the title character in the musical.
“Evan Hansen is a 16-course meal for an actor. The complexity of this boy is akin to climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in my opinion,” Jordan shared in a statement about his new role.
He adds, “I doubt I’ll ever forget the first time I sat in the Music Box to see it, and the idea of being a part of that memory for others is mind-blowing. I’m so honored to join this amazing company.”
If you don’t know, Dear Evan Hansen tells the story of an anxiety-plagued high school loner named Evan who is paralyzed by the hyper-connectivity of social media and forced to watch the world from the outside looking in. Trying to improve his self-image, Evan writes himself a letter that is mistaken for a classmate’s suicide note and rides that error to popularity.
Previously, Jordan made his Broadway debut in Hamilton as John Laurens/Philip Hamilton.
