VIDEO: DEAR EVAN HANSEN Trio Platt, Galvin & Trensch Return to the Disco Era in New 'Getaway' Video

As was previously announced, Tony Award winner Ben Platt will take his final bow in Broadway's Tony-winning musical DEAR EVAN HANSEN on November 19th. Taking over the titular role will be Noah Galvin, who begins his limited run on November 21st, and Taylor Trensch, who takes the stage as the misguided teen in mid-January.

This week, the talented trio harken back to the disco era with a new dance video to the tune of Earth Wind and Fire's 'Getaway.' Directed and edited by Nick Lieberman, the video features choreography by Olivia Puckett. Check it out below!

DEAR EVAN HANSEN was nominated for 9 Tony Awards and picked up 6 trophies including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical: Steven Levenson, Best Original Score: Music & Lyrics: Benj Pasek & Justin Paul, Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical: Ben Platt, Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Musical: Rachel Bay Jones and Best Orchestrations: Alex Lacamoire.

Dear Evan Hansen, which pairs the three time Tony Award nominated director Michael Greif (Rent, Next to Normal, Grey Gardens) with the Tony-nominated composing team of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (A Christmas Story, Dogfight, NBC's "SMASH") and award-winning playwright Steven Levenson (Showtime's "Masters of Sex") officially opened at Broadway's Music Box Theatre on Sunday, December 4, 2016.

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 a new American musical about life and the way we live it.
