Jordan Fisher To Star In 'Dear Evan Hansen' on Broadway!

Jordan Fisher To Star In 'Dear Evan Hansen' on Broadway!

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.
