I have no idea how to link things on here, but Ben tweeted out that Taylor Trensch and Noah Galvin will be playing Evan Hansen after he leaves!

Taylor Trensch I literally CANNOT WAIT
SO incredibly excited to see Noah Galvin's take on the character. Not quite sure how I feel about Trensch though..
Taylor Trensch!!! What a talent!
Galvin has an absolutely gorgeous voice that will sound amazing in this music. Trensch...well, I guess we don't have to worry about the role wrecking his voice, since it's already wrecked.
Taylor was one of best parts of Dolly, as sad as I am to see him leave the show, I'm so stoked to see his take on Evan! Now all we need is Ben Platt as Barnaby and we're set.
On top of that. Everyone else has extended through May, except Kristolyn who is leaving in February. http://www.broadway.com/buzz/189480/taylor-trensch-will-be-found-in-dear-evan-hansen-on-broadway/
Damn, they figured out a way to make me see this two more times!
mid-January 2018. Curious. So I'm guessing he's leaving with Bette on 14th January or right before? Would be surprised if he doesn't take at least a week off between shows.
With Kristolyn leaving in February, I wonder if she's involved with a show transferring to Broadway in the spring. Any ideas?
OMG YES YES YES YES YES YES YES. Taylor will be FANTASTIC. I saw him on for Alex Sharp in Curious Incident and he gave one of the best performances I've ever seen. Also beyond thrilled for Laura, Rachel and the rest of the gang! I'm thinking Kristolyn is involved with another show or maybe she wants a break? I really would like to see Alexis Molnar back in the role. Phoenix Best is with the Les Mis tour so she won't be back with DEH...
I know Samantha Marie ware is leaving the Chicago company of Hamilton in September, so it may be a long shot, but I wouldn't mind her as Alana.

Taylor is a great choice; he was heartbreaking as Christopher in Curious Incident and as Moritz and Spring Awakening, and I feel like the characters have a similar energy in a lot of ways. I don't know enough about Galvin to say anything, though.
I'm a little disappointed. I really did want the next Evan to be a POC but I'm interested to see how Noah and Taylor make the role their own. I might buy a ticket for after Taylor takes over. I'm over the moon that the other principal actors extended their contracts, I thought Laura might leave when Ben did but I'm excited to see how she plays opposite Noah and Taylor.
I wonder how much more the others were offered to stay on. Especially RBJ, who seems like she might be wanted for TV and Films now.
Good thing "temporary replacement" Noah Galvin isn't black (ha ha?).
I wonder if Galvin's short two months stint might be his lead up to doing the tour?
GIVE EVAN AN ALTERNATE PLEASE!! This show has taken such a physical toll on Ben's body and voice. I sincerely hope they cast an alternate. My choice would be Michael Lee Brown, but I hear they're eyeing him for the tour.

Wow! I am not a big fan of the score and decided I didn't need to rush to see this show but.....I want to see both of these guys. Especially Taylor. I have become a fan.
Yes to Taylor. No to Galvin who left a bad taste in my mouth a year or so ago after his Twitter mess. I'll probably swing back to see Taylor take on the role
