Biography

Ben Platt may have born September
24, 1993 in Los Angeles, California, the movie capital of the United States, but
his big break came in musical theater. Before the age of ten he appeared in a
west coast production of The Music Man, and in 2004 he was cast in a
mounting of Mame at The Hollywood Bowl. He enrolled at New York City’s
Columbia University, but left there in order to star as Elder Anrold Cunningham
in The Book of Mormon on Broadway. During this period he had his first
big role on screen in Pitch Perfect. All of this set him up for his career-establishing
performance as the title character in the musical Dear Evan Hansen, a
part that earned him numerous accolades and made him the youngest person ever
to win the Tony for Best Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical. Having built a
substantial and young fan base, Ben Platt signed a record deal with Atlantic in
2017, and nearly scored a top 40 hit with Lin-Manueal Miranda in 2018 with “Found/Tonight”,
a charity single that mashed up songs from Dear Evan Hanson and Hamilton.
His debut album, 2019’s Sing to Me Instead hit number 18. He landed his
first major television part that same year in the streaming series The Politician,
and 2021 saw the release of both the film version of Dear Evan Hansen, for
which he reprised his work as the title character, and his sophomore LP, Reverie.
