Tony Winner Ben Platt Will Exit 'Dear Evan Hansen' in November

Ben Platt, the star of the hit Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen, will be exiting the show.

“2 readings, 2 workshops, 3 productions and almost 4 years- hard to fathom that’s it’s nearly time to say goodbye to Evan and my DEH family,” Ben wrote in response to a tweet that announced he would be leaving on November 19.

Ben won the Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical this past June for his work as Evan Hansen in the show.

No replacement actor has been announced and the show will continue after Ben leaves.
