Jordan Fisher on CBS Mornings

Watch Now: Jordan Fisher Talks About Starring in Dear Evan Hansen

Dear Evan Hansen resumed performances last month at the Music Box Theatre on December 11, 2021, with the beloved Jordan Fisher returning to star in the title role. Fisher stopped by CBS Mornings to discuss the importance of being the first Black actor to play Evan Hansen full-time, the show’s message about mental health, and why he is open about his own struggles and getting help.

Dear Evan Hansen, the winner of six Tony Awards including Best Musical, is the deeply personal and profoundly contemporary musical about life and the way we live it. Hailed by critics and audiences alike, Dear Evan Hansen features a book by Tony Award winner Steven Levenson, a score by Academy Award winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, and direction by four-time Tony Award nominee Michael Greif.

In addition to Fisher, the Broadway company of Dear Evan Hansen currently stars Gabrielle Carrubba, Jessica Phillips, Christiane Noll, David Jeffery, Ivan Hernandez, Jared Goldsmith, Phoebe Koyabe, and Zachary Noah Piser.
