Checking In With… Dear Evan Hansen Star Zachary Noah Piser

"This show lives deep in my bones, and I'm so grateful to step fully into this iconic role."—Zachary Noah Piser checks in with Playbill as he looks towards stepping into the role of Evan full-time this spring. https://playbill.com/article/checking-in-with-dear-evan-hansen-star-zachary-noah-piser

This spring, Piser will step into the role of Evan Hansen full-time on Broadway, becoming the first Asian-American actor to do so.

“I am a mother, a daughter, a sister, an actor, a teacher, a friend. At Dear Evan Hansen, I understudy both mothers in the show (Heidi Hansen and Cynthia Murphy). Both of these women have a fierce love for their children. Regardless of the differences in their backgrounds and socio-economic statuses within the community, the dedication to the well-being of their families is at the forefront of their decision-making, even though it may look different in the eyes of society's expectations of what a “good mother” looks like.

Being a woman contributes to some of my greatest joys and my worst experiences. Each is valid. I am intuitively both a nurturer and a provider, and I attribute that to my womanness, while I don't think it belongs exclusively to those who are born as women. I have also experienced life changing disrespect and judgment, which happens to women far too often.

Equal opportunities for women, and especially women of color, are painfully slow in our world and industry. True evidence is shown with consistent action toward initiating the possibilities, scaffolding their learning and fostering growth with continued guidance while also welcoming their feedback in order to improve.

So I celebrate and honor the women in my life with honest praise, friendship, support and love. The best advice I can give is to listen to the women around you tell their stories. They are all worthy and inspiring of the directions we need to take to lift them up and support them adequately and equally. Most of the podcasts I listen to are women-led and I read many books by authors who are women. Most of the organizations I regularly donate to, as well, are started by women and support women in their times of need and in their future endeavors.” - Nicole Van Giesen, DEAR EVAN HANSEN on Broadway

“I celebrate Black history month by watching shows produced, created, and/or featuring a heavily Black cast. It’s incredible just how much we have gotten used to seeing everything through a specific lens. Watching shows written from a different point of view is both so refreshing, and educational. It’s something I want to see so much more of. We aren’t just ‘diversity hires,’ or here to meet a ‘quota.’ We are complex human beings who are just as valid as other artists, and we deserve to be in the spotlight too.

I wish people understood that Black history month is one, singular month. It’s the one time a year where the Black community is really recognized. I know it’s easy to brush past it but it’s the one time where a large percentage of the population is seen. One month out of twelve. So if you think Black history month is silly, or unimportant…just remember it’s the one month we have.

That’s part of the reason why Alana is such an important role to me. Because I was that little Black girl growing up. A lot of people really don’t realize just how isolating being Black can be, especially in predominantly white institutions. You’re always the ‘other’ kid who just looks different than everyone else, and it can make you feel incredibly alone. You’re constantly trying to prove just how ‘respectable’ you are, and it’s mentally exhausting. I get so many messages from Black girls telling me that Alana makes them feel seen, and that just makes playing her all that much better.

And that’s part of what Black joy means to me. Black joy is simply…living. Black joy is little Black boys and girls simply being children, and Black families cooking while singing and laughing. Black joy is Black people living as freely and happily as possible in spite of the hate in this world.” - Phoebe Koyabe, DEAR EVAN HANSEN on Broadway

02/19/2022

“As an avid reader, I celebrate Black History Month by reading work by Black authors because it is so important to see myself in literature; to normalize someone like me being the main character of their own story, and not only in tragic stories but in romance novels and more. We need to see us winning, to see us taking up space, so that it no longer becomes this radical thing. I want to normalize a Black woman being the central point of the story and not the advice giver or a character created as a stepping stone for another.

I wish people understood how Black History is American history. America was built on Black labor. We would not have the things we have or the culture that we have without the things that my ancestors go through. It is our job to know and understand that history. To honor it, and move forward with that knowledge to make things better.

Understanding that history also allows us to experience Black joy, which, to me, means being free. It means choosing to find joy anyway regardless of what's happening around you. I like to think a lot about how my ancestors underwent things I could never have even imagined and the reason I am able to have any ounce of Black joy is because of them. So I carry that humbly and share it proudly. To encourage people that we are free to live our lives just as much as anyone else regardless of how people feel about the color of our skin.

With this in mind, it’s also important to recognize our strength. Like my character in DEAR EVAN HANSEN. To me, Alana represents the Black girl who is one of few if not the only Black kid at her school who feels the constant need to prove her worth. I think a lot of Black people can relate to being in this kind of situation where they feel the need to jump at breaking stereotypes of them by having the best behavior. I think Alana balances that line of being this strong Black woman willing to cooperate with everything in order to be liked and struggles with being vulnerable for fear that she will be liked less or seen as weak.” - Ciara Alyse Harris, DEAR EVAN HANSEN North American Tour

02/08/2022

“During the early stages of the pandemic, I found myself exploring what my definition of activism was and in what ways I could authentically use my voice and speak up for injustices in my own community whether it was the arts community or my university/campus as a whole.

I began working at The Muse NC, a Black-owned, curated thrift store I stumbled upon. The owner, Dionne Liles, quickly became a mentor and partner when it came to not only the shop but activism in the community. Though I spent the heat of the summer on the front lines of protests, I soon shifted my focus back to theatre. I asked myself what stories I was willing to tell, what stories I was willing to lend my voice to, what stories celebrated me, a Black woman, and I turned down opportunities that I felt would not allow me to express myself fully. I learned a lot about what art fueled me and the types of stories I wanted to tell. I refused to settle into stereotypes and saw creatives who tried to push me in this direction as harmful and unprofessional.

In my role at Dear Evan Hansen, I stress the importance of pulling from all aspects of myself in each role I cover, especially knowing some characters were originally created without me in mind. To acknowledge this and examine my characters through my lens is where we start to see the relatability of these characters come to life on actors of color.

What is the point of having “diversity” when the performances of those minorities are inauthentic? This creates disconnect when a large part of our show and art in general is supposed to hold a mirror to society. Whether that be to praise the good parts or call out its flaws.

Just being in the room, I have a responsibility to show up fully, vulnerably, and truthfully in order to convey an authentic performance, which I strive to do every time I get on stage. In order to do this, the environment has to be a safe space for everyone involved. This goes to show that the greatness of a show boils down to the leadership behind the scenes which has already been reevaluated in our own company.” - Haile Ferrier, DEAR EVAN HANSEN's North American Tour

BREAKING NEWS: Following a triumphant sold-out Off Broadway run this past Fall, it has just been announced that the new musical adaptation of Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire's play KIMBERLY AKIMBO is officially transferring ON Broadway this Fall 2022!!!!! Under the direction of Broadway performer Jessica Stone and choreographed by Danny Mefford (Dear Evan Hansen), the show is expecting to play a to-be-determined Shubert Organization owned Broadway house. Previews are set for October 12th, 2022 and the official Opening Night will be November 10th, 2022. That's not all, the FULL cast from that recent Off-Broadway run will all be continuing with the production. That lineup consists of.... Tony winner Victoria Clark (Broadway's The Light In The Piazza, Sister Act, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella, and GIGI) in the titular role, Tony nominee Steven Boyer (Broadway's Hand to God) as "Buddy", Justin Cooley in his Broadway debut as "Seth", Olivia Elease Hardy (National Tour of Summer) in her Broadway debut as "Delia", Fernell Hogan II (National Tour of Mean Girls) in his Broadway debut as "Martin", Michael Iskander in his Broadway debut as "Aaron", Broadway favorite Alli Mauzey (Cry-Baby, WICKED, and Hello, Dolly) as "Pattie", Powerhouse Bonnie Milligan (Broadway's Head Over Heels and the recent 50th Anniversary concert of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat) as "Debra", and Nina White in her Broadway debut as "Teresa". For those who may not know, KIMBERLY AKIMBO tells the story of a funny, bright, and outgoing Jersey teenager who happens to look like a 72-year-old lady. And yet her aging disease may be the least of her problems. Forced to maneuver family secrets, borderline personalities, and possible felony charges, Kim is determined to find happiness in a world where not even time is on her side. The musical features original music by Tony Award winner Jeanine Tesori and lyrics and a book by the OG playwright himself David Lindsay-Abaire. The musical premiered Off Broadway at the Atlantic Theater Company as part of the ongoing celebration of Live Theater's return post COVID-19. It was initially slated to run through Christmas.
