The cast of the Toronto production of Dear Evan Hansen appeared on Breakfast Television Toronto April 25 to talk about the new mounting and sing from the Tony-winning musical. Led by Robert Markus (in the title role) and Stephanie La Rochelle (who plays Zoe), the company sang the Act 1 closer “You Will Be Found.”
The Toronto sit-down production began performances March 5 at the Royal Alexandra Theatre and features an all-Canadian cast; joining Markus and La Rochelle are Jessica Sherman as Heidi, Sean Patrick Dolan as Connor, Claire Rankin as Cynthia, Evan Buliung as Larry, Alessandro Costantini as Jared, and Shakura Dickson as Alana. Rounding out the company are Wicked alum Zachary Noah Piser as the Evan alternate, as well as understudies Erin Breen, Malinda Carroll, Jay Davis, David Jeffery, Laura Mae Nason, and Kaitlyn Santa Juana.
The musical, featuring a Tony-winning book by Steven Levenson and a Tony-winning score by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, continues its run at Broadway's Music Box Theatre. A U.S. national tour launched in September. A London bow is slated for fall 2019.
