So for those wondering who Colton is and why everyone’s freaking out about him, here’s a video talking about his experience with theatre. He’s so, so sweet and has dealt with a lot and he’s! Only! 21! How amazing is that that this incredibly genuine, goofy, talented 21-year-old got to go on as Evan Hansen in Dear Evan Hansen and make his Broadway debut today? Basically, everyone SHOULD freak out about Colton Ryan getting to go on today and how incredible he must be feeling right now.
