Six Times Dear Evan Hansen Star Jordan Fisher Sang Broadway & Melted Our Hearts
Jordan Fisher officially takes over the title role in the Tony Award-winning Best Musical Dear Evan Hansenbeginning today.
The Dancing with the Stars winner made his Broadway debut back in 2016 when he stepped into Hamilton as Philip Hamilton/John Laurens, and now he’s waving through a window eight times a week at the Music Box Theatre. To celebrate Jordan’s return to Broadway, here are six videos of him performing showtunes and melting our hearts.
“Those Magic Changes”, Grease
Jordan first broke out on Fox’s Emmy-winning Grease Live singing “Those Magic Changes”. It was so good that even Aaron Tveit in those shorts couldn’t upstage him.
“La Vie Boheme”, Rent
Jordan’s next foray into live TV musicals was leading Fox’s Rent as Mark Cohen, and I’ve never seen a Mark with more swagger—those moves, that voice.
“I’m Here”, The Color Purple
A fixture at the annual MCC Miscast gala, Jordan stepped into Cynthia Erivo’s shoes for a moving, soulful performance of “I’m Here”. He nails this—well worth the watch.
“Waiting for Life”, Once On This Island
Here he is coming for LaChanze’s gig again. Two things: 1. That little dance at 1:45; 2. How did he not replace in as Daniel in the last revival?
“My Shot”, Hamilton
Paying tribute to his Broadway debut like. Also, he should graduate from Philip to Alexander. Let’s see him do the whole track.
“Hold Me In Your Heart”, Kinky Boots
Acting moments and the vocals—he’s serving it at 100. He makes this sound like something you’d hear on the radio.
Hear Jordan Fisher sing “Waving Through a Window” and more in ‘Dear Evan Hansen’ at Broadway’s Music Box Theatre.
