Backstage with Richard Ridge: Meet the Murphys- Hangin' with DEAR EVAN HANSEN's Michael Park & Jennifer Laura Thompson
The love is real at the Music Box Theatre. Jennifer Laura Thompson and Michael Park play the heads of Murphy family, and offstage they are just as close with their stage children and the rest of the gang at Dear Evan Hansen. Below, watch as the hilarious duo chats about their tight-knit clan, the road to Broadway, and so much more!
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. Both deeply personal and profoundly contemporary, Dear Evan Hansen is the new American musical about life and the way we live it.
Dear Evan Hansen opened at the Music Box Theatre to rave reviews on December 4, 2016, where it's broken all box office records and has struck a chord with critics and audiences alike. The winner of six 2017 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Dear Evan Hansenfeatures a book by Tony Award-winner Steven Levenson, a score by Academy Award and Tony winning composers Benj Pasek & Justin Paul, and direction by 4-time Tony® Award nominee Michael Greif. The Original Broadway Cast Recording of Dear Evan Hansen, produced by Atlantic Records, was released in February 2017, making an extraordinary debut on the Billboard 200 and entering the chart at #8 - the highest charting debut position for an original cast album since 1961.
