Ben Platt previews new album with “Andrew”

Tony, GRAMMY and Emmy Award winner Ben Platt will play an exclusive concert residency at Broadway’s recently refurbished Palace Theatre, in celebration of the release of his upcoming third album Honeymind. The residency, directed by Tony Award winner Michael Arden (and queer Texan) who collaborated with Platt on the 2023 Tony Award-winning revival of Parade which also earned Platt a Tony nomination, will run May 28-June 15.

“The Palace is one of Broadway’s most preeminent theatres. Playing The Palace has been synonymous with the pinnacle of success since the theatre opened in 1913. The venue has been home to such legendary performers as Josephine Baker, Harry Belafonte, Elvis Presley, Shirley MacLaine, Bette Midler, Diana Ross, Liza Minnelli, and perhaps most famously Judy Garland. The venue closed in 2018 for a significant renovation and restoration, including raising the historically landmarked venue 30 feet in the air,” Platt said in a press release.

If you can’t make it to Broadway for Platt, his new album Honeymind is available for pre-order with his first single off the album available now.
