About Ben Platt
People around the world fell in love with Ben Platt from his Tony Award-winning turn in the title role of Dear Evan Hansen and his appearances the Pitch Perfect films.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, music surrounded him from infancy. Platt spent countless hours in lessons and performing on the house piano. His earliest brush with songwriting and arranging came with a fun family exercise of re-writing medleys from Broadway classics for bar mitzvahs, weddings and other gatherings.
After making his debut in a Hollywood Bowl production of The Music Man costarring Kristin Chenoweth, he went on to tour the country as part of Caroline, or Change. In 2012 he attracted widespread critical acclaim as Elder Arnold Cunningham in the Chicago production of The Book of Mormon. Meanwhile, he jumped to the big screen as Benji Applebaum in Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2. However, the consummate showman broke through to superstar status as Evan Hansen in Dear Evan Hansen, originating the lead role in Washington, D.C. and on Broadway.
A vocalist, actor and performer, Platt has sung life into a host of nuanced characters, audiences. He's also shared another side of himself as a solo artist in early 2019 by dusting off the piano, picking up a pen and singing his own truth straight from the heart. He released his 12-track debut album, Sing to Me Instead, last month which chronicles the highs and lows of a transformative relationship while showcasing his story.
