Jordan Fisher will be accompanied by the rest of the pre-shutdown cast when “Dear Evan Hansen” reopens at the Music Box Theatre on Dec. 11, producer Stacey Mindich announced Monday.
Fisher was previously reported to be returning as Evan, the role he had been playing since Jan. 28 until the pandemic shut down the production. Gabrielle Carrubba, Jessica Phillips, Christiane Noll, David Jeffery, Ivan Hernandez, Jared Goldsmith, Phoebe Koyabe, Zachary Noah Piser, Reese Sebastian Diaz, Nathan Levy, Dan Macke, Jane Pfitsch, Talia Simone Robinson, Asa Somers, Josh Strobl and Nicole Van Giesen all return to their roles in the Broadway production. Linedy Genao and Mateo Lizcano join the company as understudies.
Stephen Christopher Anthony will play Evan in the musical’s touring production, which is set to launch on Dec. 7 in Greensboro, North Carolina. He is joined by Stephanie La Rochelle, Jessica E. Sherman, Claire Rankin, John Hemphill, Alessandro Costantini, Ciara Alyse Harris, Nikhil Saboo, Sam Primack, Alaina Anderson, Matthew Edward Kemp, Mark Quackenbush, Coleen Sexton, Daniel Robert Sullivan and Kelsey Venter.
Mindich also announced the casting for the West End production of “Dear Evan Hansen,” which is scheduled to reopen on Oct. 26. Sam Tutty will return to fill the lead role in London.
“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,” said Mindich in a press release.
