Jennifer Laura Thompson originated the role of 'Cynthia Murphy' at the Arena Stage production of Dear Evan Hansen in Washington D.C. prior to the show's Second Stage Theatre production and Broadway production at the Music Box Theatre.
The winner of a 2018 Grammy Award and six 2017 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Dear Evan Hansen features 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.

"One of the most remarkable shows in musical theater history" by the Washington Post's Peter Marks, 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.
