Ben Platt is developing quite the relationship with the folks over at Netflix. Not only does his new show, The Politician, debut on September 27th, but now Netflix will be doing a new concert special with the Broadway superstar that documents his final sold-out show from his tour at Radio City Music Hall.
According to the Hollywood Reporter,
Platt, who is a Tony, Emmy and Grammy winner, will perform songs at the concert from his debut album "Sing to Me Instead" and his recent single RAIN, as well as a few covers. Ben Winston's Fulwell73 Productions and live show creator-director Lee Lodge are executive producing.
Ben Platt broke out after starring in the massive Broadway hit, Dear Evan Hansen. On this tour he's played shows at the Dolby Theater, Chicago Theater, Beacon Theater and the Hammersmith Eventim Apollo in London.
Platt told the Hollywood Reporter,
Live performance has always been my greatest love — it’s where I feel like the truest version of myself. I cannot wait to share my music and my stories at this iconic venue in my favorite city, and I’m thrilled that this special moment will be immortalized for a wider audience. I’m so incredibly grateful to continue working with the Netflix family.
No date for the debut of the special has been announced, but it will be filmed live at Radio City Music Hall on September 29th.
