That's that's a huge something that i see in my future and we way hopefully returning to broadway sometime soon. That's going to get all your fans attention. Hello there all right. what's your drink. It's slightly boring but it's very healthy. It's just a matter. I mean i'm just gonna say that. Jane goodall had whiskey and repent martini and we had khumbu and smoothies. Water might be the most boring drink. We've we've had. But i get at least i have exciting nails to make up for the boring water. He let me see those. I noticed those at the met gala. Oh cavs those are exciting. You were there all decked out in delta yes indeedy. I was a christian callen before little gay cowboy on the big question. Ben is always. You've won a tony right. An emmy a grammy. Your twenty seven yes. How on earth did that happen by the age twenty seven. How'd you get here a number of things. i mean. i think the earliest reason for my being errors. That i had a wonderful family that really supported my love of the and of singing and performing and also that my siblings before me had already been doing musical theater at the youth program when i was born so once i was old enough to join like four or five started doing cinderella and oliver and all of those great kids musicals and fell just deeply in love with performing your father's a musical producer rates so evil and you're from la. I think some people might go wait. So was it one of those like you were forced into child acting. You know what. I mean yes. Of course i'm actually understand but if anything because my father's in the business he knows what unfortunately terrible business it can be an how deeply terrifying can be. They're always very cautionary in very realistic. About what i was getting myself into. And i think when he and my mom saw that not only did. I have a deep deep love for it but i really had an ability. End an affinity for it to go along with that. Date import. You do it all through high school. And then am i right that you moved to new york to go to columbia university. Yes so i finished on. How long did that last. Not very long. I lasted about six and a half seven weeks to the end of october. At which point. It was fortunate enough to be constant in book of mormon Which was opening a new company chicago at the time and so i couldn't pass up the opportunity to originate all new company. And so i. I left to do that. Been on this roller coaster. Since then it's worked out okay. I think all right when you went in for a reading of durban hanson. Did you know right away like did you have a moment like this is for me. Yes it always opened with. Evans kind of stream-of-consciousness when he's trying to write this letter and thinking about all the ways in which the day could go wrong and dislike run on anxiety filled comedic kind of lovable rhythm that i felt really connected to and then on top of that was waiting through windows for song. Which was there from the very first day. And i think that really was when i sang that song and really felt Just a deep connection not only vocally and stylistically but in terms of what's being expressed in indicated in that song. I think when i was finished singing i felt this. I i have to make myself invalid with your. I can't ever let the scope. I sing. And i know how hard it is to sing. I mean every night and you're not just seeing you're like laying barriers soul. I mean you're crying and singing at the same time it physically. How did you do that. Water is a big that. I did that water and then also i think just i was blessed to have material that really called for that giving that much of myself. I got to experience firsthand. The way that it literally saved people's lives and started conversations and really make people feel seen and heard in like a really deep kind of universal way and so i think if there were ever nights where i was like how am i going to get up on stage and do this again. Or how am i going to put my body this again. It was reading a letter that i got nor reminding looking on on social media in hearing someone who was coming to show for the first time. Just reminding myself that it's so much bigger than my own experience. He even when the dog comes crashing through when you need a friend to carry do when you're rogue at all you be a really is about mental health right and his anxiety and acceptance and so many different themes that are tough. Yes relatable to to everyone. I i also wondered. How much of you is. evan hansen. Or how much. Evan hansen is you. I think yes. And no. I think more so when i was playing him on stage. The most important thing we share. Which is what makes the story the most meaningful for me on this experience for me that i struggled with anxiety for my whole life particularly in as an adult i think having that shared baseline so it's Is always what makes me feel the most connected to him. And i think in in coming back to it for the film the biggest difference that i really tried to apply to sort of protect myself was to maintain a healthy distance. Between who he hasn't miam- what do you want people to take from the movie on the most basic level. I just hope it's a nice escape on on on a deeper level. I hope it makes people feel connected and reminds us of our shared humanity. There's been a lot of talk about your age a lot of like. Oh he's twenty seven. He's playing a high school kid. How are you processing all that. I'm trying my best to tune it out because there's nothing i can do about how old i am. I'm very privileged in very grateful that i was given the opportunity to preserve the role in that the director in the studio deemed mike performance or the of of the film version in. So i all. I can do is play a character in when i'm playing a character. There's all sorts of things about myself. That are not like who i am. You know. i'm way a little less or address a little differently or my ears little earlier and in this particular case. I'm someone younger than i am. And that's my job as an actress to play things that are not like me. Flipside as you're twenty seven years old you've won all these major awards. You achieved a lot. So where do you go from here. You know i would love to continue to make ritual music and perform mireslav music. I love.

We're living in a time where there's misinformation campaign and your story started out with your cousins sisters fiance's brother that's that's a huge red flag right there. That's the reason the white house. I think wants to contact her and talk because all the people out there who follow him using who reveal her listening to which is the right thing for the white house to put off to talk with a doctor.

Eddie right and we know that there has been some hesitancy in the black community is getting much better. But i would implore people that have great platform to do your research and not spread any misinformation. And when you have people like tucker. Carlson kansas owens and laura ingraham sticking up for you gotta kinda coming thing is probably wrong and she should probably think about getting her information from someone like his mekki corbett the african american woman who was a key scientists behind the cove. One thousand nine hundred vaccine. Who has offered at. Mickey she has. She has access to the information. Okay yeah i understand if you come around and you say my god where did you get that third head you know. I want to understand. You might be a little hesitant. Now you know or god you have a tail. Where did that come from. And if that's not what's happening. If the stories of the day are not about the what's happening to people because of this you gotta take some solace in the fact that people are not having those kinds of issues. They're not having those crimes. I'm gonna tell you. There is one issue scientific. No i'm not gonna say the issue that we can't mention. I'm going to tell you one that we can make there's erectile dysfunction. There are scientific studies from the cleveland clinic and from reputable scientific organizations.

"Leave my life but i'm just scared that as soon as i do that i'm not going to be willing to put as much effort and energy because i put a lot of effort energy relationships Relationships i i'll be like if it works out perfect. Great gonna be very grateful. I'm very happy with that person. But shifting and changing as much as i shift event changed myself for him. I don't think i can't do it up again. Will maybe the next person in your life will be able to do nice things for you. Maybe you won't have to feel like you're giving so much of yourself and it could be a great time to be single for a minute. I wish i had been more single in my twenties. I think i kind of missed out on some things. I moved in with my boyfriend like four months after we met and then we got married and we were just too young. We were just idiots. It was like we were playing being married. I look back on that. And i'm like that was like a production or something like we were just playing roles and not very well at a whole. So that's kinda where i'm coming from and i think the reason why i can so breezily say to you. I think you should break up with him is because it feels to me from kinda your energy that you have been kind of breaking up with him for a long time in your head or tried to get him. Break breakout with me. Had we can show you how to do that. Okay well first and foremost the reason why you shifted and had to work so hard at becoming. What he wanted was partly due to personality types and also the age that you both were when you met when you hit an older age. We don't do that. hopefully we. Don't so that was part of just growth right if you stay in something like that where you're having to acquiesce and shift and bend yourself into a pretzel to be with somebody..

I feel like i recognize so many elements of this. I think she needs to see. I mean i know it sounds crazy and horrible but i think she needs to see what life is like with other guys. Because that's how you develop your patterns in your needs and your wants and your dealbreakers is that you get to explore experiment. The twenties our exploration and they're the exploration time of ourselves. And you can't do that by being with one person since you were super young especially if you move to another country and that doesn't mean have sex with other people but go out have coffee. A dinner have lunch meat. People connect with co workers. You need the exposure to develop yourself. I want you to have a relationship where you can have long meaningful conversations. A road trip relationship. You know i want you to be able to drive to texas and talk to each other the whole time if you met when you're nineteen and he was twenty one. You've probably talked a lot. Then you knew each other. You had a lot more in common. Now it's like you guys are two different people. You've had such different experiences. And you kind of put your life on. Hold a little bit for him when you were in europe and only going to school and not really having a life experiences because you sorta found security in what he thought the future would be. And i think that's shifting for you. And i think it's awesome. I know i know it's scary. It's so easy for me to be like just break. He's even say we like to ask this to on it. What do you wanna do like. How can we support you and help you visualize and strategize. You want him to move.

I'd say the best part of it is just knowing that when i create something that i love or bible make music that i love that i you know acting a piece that i think is important. I have a platform to get that out there. To have a lot of people see down get is on it. And that's the best part. I think that's like a gift and i try to take that responsibility seriously as i can without like psyching myself out and i like running into people who have been moved or changed in some way by what i've done. Then they're certain encounters that are really meaningful ones. That i really am grateful for. But then i also feel that it's terrifying and sort of detrimental and like that. I exist as this kind of idea of somebody for a lot of people or this version of myself that i subconsciously have to try to sort of maintain in addition to just like figuring out who actually am which is just kind of a weird mind game and you know. I'm anxious kind of private person. So the idea that anyone is sort of looking in wanting to know what's going on. I'm sure you feel very deeply. The that is unsettling to me for sir.
