Good luck getting a ticket between now and Nov. 19 for less than a mortgage payment.
The show will continue to thrive with a new cast. Certainly not at the current astronomical levels, but it has the Best Musical tag and a huge following from its cast recording.August 22, 2017 at 3:20 pm #1202192042

Ben Platt will not be doing matinee performances at Dear Evan Hansen for the remainder of his contract (except for his final week). Standby Michael Lee Brown will play Evan at the matinees.
They should really consider an alternate schedule for all future Evans as well.September 5, 2017 at 11:37 am #1202204302

This is quite an interesting casting for a regional theater: Robert Newman and Kim Zimmer, best known for playing the couple Josh Lewis and Reva Shayne on the soap opera Guiding Light, are playing George and Martha in Theatre Workshop of Nantucket’s production of Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?, which began yesterday and runs until September 30. http://www.playbill.com/article/guiding-lights-josh-and-reva-will-be-virginia-woolfs-george-and-marthaSeptember 7, 2017 at 8:48 am #1202206259
Kim Zimmer is a wonderful actress in big, broad roles. I would imagine she would chew the scenery very effectively as Martha. That’s a production I wish I could see.September 8, 2017 at 7:13 am #1202207149
Gavin Creel and Kate Baldwin have both extended their runs in Hello, Dolly!, meaning that they’ll both get to be playing opposite Bernadette Peters and Victor Garber.

Kim Zimmer is a wonderful actress in big, broad roles. I would imagine she would chew the scenery very effectively as Martha. That’s a production I wish I could see.
Oscar nominee Meg Tilly also played Martha in a Vancouver production of Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? back in 2011. Since I’m not Canadian, I didn’t get to see the show live, but if you go on YouTube, there’s news segments from a Vancouver news program showing footage of her in rehearsals, and she looked like she was knocking it out of the park.September 25, 2017 at 1:18 pm #1202223227
