Today is Thanksgiving, a day full of traditions like turkey, family dinner and the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Every year casts from some of the biggest hits on Broadway perform during the parade. This year there were numbers from Anastasia, Spongebob Squarepants, Once on This Island and Dear Evan Hansen—the latter starring the show’s new lead, Noah Galvin.
Dear Evan Hansen was one of the first Broadway performance on this year’s telecast and the cast performed the emotional song “You Will Be Found” from the Tony-winning musical.
Galvin made his Broadway debut in Dear Evan Hansen on November 21, but his run will be a limited engagement since he will be replaced by Taylor Trensch in mid-January.
Premiering December 2016, Dear Evan Hansen is about a high school student with social anxiety disorder who invents an important role for himself in the death of another student, and the aftermath that spirals out of control.
