Ben Platt announces Broadway residency

Ben Platt has announced an upcoming Broadway residency.

The singer/actor has announced a concert residency at Broadway's Palace Theatre in celebration of his upcoming album, Honeymind.

"Like my foremothers Liza and Judy before me, it is far beyond my wildest imagination to announce that I'll be playing a 3-week concert residency at The Palace on Broadway," Ben, 30, wrote on Instagram on Monday.

"I feel perpetually blessed to be part of the theatre community, and to have the opportunity to perform as myself and from my own perspective in this newly reopened, storied Broadway house is one of the greatest honors of my life," The Politician star continued. "I can't wait to introduce my new record Honeymind on the beautifully revived stage, along with some other songs and surprises."

He concluded, "I'll be doing 18 shows from May 28 to June 15. Tickets on sale now at the link in my story, including VIP ones so I can meet some of you after the show! The dreams that you dare to dream really do come true."

The show, entitled Ben Platt Live at the Palace, will be directed by Michael Arden. The pair previously worked together on the 2023 Tony Award-winning revival of Parade.

According to a press release, the show will feature songs from Ben's new album, as well as some songs from his previous albums Sing to Me Instead and Reverie, plus "a few surprises".

Ben released the first single from his new album on Friday, accompanied by a music video. The full album is due for release on 31 May.

The residency is set to run from 28 May to 15 June.
