Michael Lee Brown, who steps into the starring role of Broadway’s Dear Evan Hansen on a weekly basis, will make his New York City solo concert debut September 30 at Feinstein's/54 Below.

Brown will perform original songs from his solo debut EP Way It Used to Be, which premiered on Billboard earlier this year. Fans can also expect to hear a few of his favorite musical theatre songs, alongside covers of 1990s and early 2000s pop rock. Showtime is 9:45 PM.

Brown has been a part of Dear Evan Hansen since the hit musical arrived on Broadway in 2016. He made his Broadway debut as understudy for the roles of Connor, Jared, and Evan—and became the show’s official alternate in 2017, stepping in for Ben Platt once a week in the vocally-demanding starring role.


Ted Arthur (Dear Evan Hansen, Once on this Island, Mean Girls, Prom) serves as musical director with orchestrations by Jon Balcourt (Dear Evan Hansen). Band members include Rob Jost, Dillon Kondor, Sean McDaniel, Chris Reza, and Adele Stein.

There is a $30-$40 cover charge and $25 food and beverage minimum. Visit
