Jordan Fisher will return to the title role, a role he had just recently stepped into prior to the shutdown. The returning Broadway company of Dear Evan Hansen will also include all those who were there at the time of the shutdown: Gabrielle Carrubba, Jessica Phillips, Christiane Noll, David Jeffery, Ivan Hernandez, Jared Goldsmith, and Phoebe Koyabe, and Zachary Noah Piser, Reese Sebastian Diaz, Nathan Levy, Dan Macke, Jane Pfitsch, Talia Simone Robinson, Asa Somers, Josh Strobl, and Nicole Van Giesen, along with Linedy Genao and Mateo Lizcano, who join the company as understudies.

The third year of the record-breaking North American Tour will relaunch on December 7, 2021, in Greensboro, North Carolina with Stephen Christopher Anthony returning as Evan Hansen, before visiting more than 30 cities across the US and Canada in the 2021/2022 season. And the show’s newest production, the 2020 Olivier Award-winner for Best Musical, will reopen in London at the Noël Coward Theatre on October 26, 2021, starring Sam Tutty, who won the Oliver Award for Best Actor in a Musical for the role.

“Now more than ever, there is a relevancy to the themes of our beautiful musical,” Mindich said, “It’s a deeply joyous moment to plan for our companies to reunite very soon, as they prepare to greet audiences again with our messages of connection and hope and to give them the chance to hear our score live at The Music Box Theatre, on National Tour and at London’s Noel Coward Theatre.”
