Today is a bittersweet day as the Broadway company of the Tony and Grammy winning smash hit Dear Evan Hansen says farewell to another beloved original cast member…. Laura Dreyfuss.
The Broadway veteran and former Glee star takes her final bow at the Music Box Theatre after an incredible 2 1/2 year journey. Dreyfuss has been with the show since some of its early readings, workshops, and its world premiere productions (in Washington D.C. at Arena Stage, Off Broadway at Second Stage Theater, and Broadway). However for Dreyfuss, she has more exciting things coming her way including a new TV job lined up. No word has been announced on when that will be airing.
Following Dreyfuss’ final bow, we are so excited about the lineup of actresses taking over the role of “Zoe Murphy” (the love interest of the title character).
From July 17th through 29th, 2018, the role will be performed 8 times a week by Dreyfuss’ standby Olivia Puckett.
From there starting July 31st, 2018, 18 year old Houston girl and newcomer Mallory Bechtel will become the new “Zoe Murphy” fulltime.
Congrats Laura on and incredible 2 1/2 year journey and delivering a powerful and haunting performance. Happy Trails!!
Break a leg Olivia and Mallory. We know both of you will make Laura really proud and making the role of “Zoe Murphy” your very own.
Three years after originating the role of Zoe Murphy in the hit Broadway musical, the ‘Glee’ alum is returning to television.
