Ben Levi Ross in Dear Evan Hansen

Ben Levi Ross Returns to Broadway’s Dear Evan Hansen for Eight Weeks Only

Producer Stacey Mindich is thrilled to welcome back Ben Levi Ross to the Music Box Theatre this Tuesday, March 22, where they will re-join the Broadway company of Dear Evan Hansen as Evan Hansen. Ross made their Broadway debut as a cover in Dear Evan Hansen in 2017 and went on to receive critical acclaim in 2018 as the original Evan in the first North American Tour. Most recently, he co-starred in tick, tick…BOOM! and now returns to the Tony, Grammy & Olivier Award-winning musical for a limited 8-week engagement through May 15, 2022.

“I joined the company of Evan Hansen when I was 19 and I’m 24 now,” Ross said. “I was a Broadway understudy, then led the first National Tour, and now with this return to Broadway, it feels like a perfect conclusion to my time with this fantastic company that jump-started my career. Stepping back into the role has allowed me to feel just how much I’ve grown as a performer and as a person these last 4 years, and I’m really excited to connect with audiences once again.”

As previously announced, Zachary Noah Piser, who has been part of Dear Evan Hansen companies since March 2019 and is currently the Evan alternate on Broadway, will follow Ross to become the first Asian American actor to step into the role full-time, beginning May 17, 2022. Stephen Christopher Anthony, who currently plays the lead role on the North American Tour, will join the Broadway company as Evan Hansen for a limited 4-week engagement beginning August 8, 2022. Sam Primack, who made his Broadway debut as an Evan cover, will take over the role from Anthony, beginning in September 2022.

Dear Evan Hansen reopened its Broadway production on December 11, 2020, and currently has three productions running across the globe, with its Broadway, North American Tour, and West End companies once again playing in tandem.

The current company of Dear Evan Hansen includes Zachary Noah Piser, Gabrielle Carrubba, Jessica Phillips, Christiane Noll, David Jeffery, Ivan Hernandez, Jared Goldsmith, and Phoebe Koyabe, with Reese Sebastian Diaz, Linedy Genao, Nathan Levy, Mateo Lizcano, Dan Macke, Jane Pfitsch, Talia Simone Robinson, Asa Somers, Josh Strobl, and Nicole Van Giesen.
