Adjunct Assistant Professor Manoel Felciano will join Broadway's Dear Evan Hansen at the Music Box Theatre.


The award winning musical, recently adapted for the screen, is the winner of six Tony Awards including Best Musical. In it, highschooler Evan Hansen feels invisible. But when a tragedy thrusts him into the center of a rapidly evolving controversy, he is given the opportunity of a lifetime: the chance to be somebody. Dear Evan Hansen features a score by the Tony-and-Oscar-winning song team of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, a book by Tony winner Steven Levenson, choreography by Danny Mefford, and direction by multiple Tony nominee Michael Greif. 


Felciano was recently seen in the world premiere of Jeffrey Hatcher’s adaptation of The Alchemist at Manhattan’s Red Bull Theater. He will step into the role of ‘Larry Murphy,’ succeeding Ivan Hernandez, who played his final performance in the hit musical April 29. 

Felciano’s run in Dear Evan Hansen began April 30, 2022.
