Ben Platt is back! The Tony, Emmy, and Grammy Award-winning actor will return to Broadway with a concert residency at the Palace Theatre this spring, playing 18 performances between May 28 and June 15.

Ben Platt: Live at the Palace will be the first show to play the Palace since the theatre closed for extensive renovations in 2018. The show also coincides with the release of Platt's third album of original music, Honeymind.

"It is far beyond my wildest imagination to play a residency of my own music in a house as storied as the Palace," Platt said in a statement. "I feel blessed to be part of the theater community, and to have the opportunity to perform as myself and from my own perspective on a Broadway stage is one of the greatest honors of my life.

"My hope is to bridge my musical theatre roots that I hold so dear with the world of classic Americana songwriting that I’ve fallen so deeply in love with."

Platt is best known for his Tony-winning performance in the title role of Dear Evan Hansen and for screen roles in Theater Camp (also co-writer), Pitch Perfect and The Politician. He most recently appeared on Broadway in the Tony-winning revival of Parade.

That revival's director, Michael Arden, also directs Platt's concert residency.
