They join Ben Levi Ross as Evan Hansen and Jessica Phillips as Heidi Hansen.
Dear Evan Hansen has announced complete casting for the Tony Award-winning musical's first national tour.
Joining the previously announced Ben Levi Ross as Evan Hansen and Jessica Phillips as Heidi Hansen are Tony Award nominee Christiane Noll (Ragtime) as Cynthia Murphy, Aaron Lazar (The Last Ship) as Larry Murphy, Marrick Smith as Connor Murphy, Maggie McKenna as Zoe Murphy, Jared Goldsmith as Jared Kleinman, and Phoebe Koyabe as Alana Beck. Stephen Christopher Anthony will be the Evan alternate, and Ashley De La Rosa, Noah Kieserman, Jane Pfitsch, Coleen Sexton, and Maria Wirries will be the understudies.
Dear Evan Hansen will launch in October at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. The tour will go on to play more than 50 cities over a two-year period, including Los Angeles (Ahmanson Theater), San Francisco (the Curran), Las Vegas (the Smith Center), Chicago (Oriental Theatre), Atlanta (the Fox Theatre), Boston (the Boston Opera House), and more. In addition, Dear Evan Hansen will launch its first international production in Canada in March 2019 at Toronto's Royal Alexandra Theatre.
With a Tony-winning score by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, and a Tony-winning book by Steven Levenson, Dear Evan Hansen is described as follows: "A letter that was never meant to be seen, a lie that was never meant to be told, a life he never dreamed he could have. Evan Hansen is about to get the one thing he's always wanted: a chance to finally fit in."
