For the past few years, the hottest name on Broadway has been Ben Platt, after his Tony Award winning performance in the Original Broadway Cast of Dear Evan Hansen (produced by his father, Marc Platt who is also a producer of Wicked). I was lucky enough to see Ben play the role on Broadway and he deserves all the accolades he has been given.
Following up from his debut album Sing To Me Instead which was released recently, it has been announced that Ben Platt will come to London’s Eventim Apollo Theatre this Summer on 16 June to perform a concert.
After making his debut in a Hollywood Bowl production of The Music Man costarring Kristin Chenoweth, he went on to tour the country as part of Caroline, or Change. 2012 saw him attract widespread critical acclaim as Elder Arnold Cunningham in the Chicago production of The Book of Mormon. Meanwhile, he jumped to the big screen as Benji Applebaum in Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2.
