The residency will be directed by Tony winner Michael Arden, who directed Platt in his Tony-nominated performance as Leo Frank in the recent Broadway revival of Parade

“It is far beyond my wildest imagination to play a residency of my own music in a house as storied as the Palace," Platt said in a statement. "I feel blessed to be part of the theater community, and to have the opportunity to perform as myself and from my own perspective on a Broadway stage is one of the greatest honors of my life. I can’t wait to introduce my new record on the beautifully revived stage. My hope is to bridge my musical theater roots that I hold so dear with the world of classic Americana songwriting that I’ve fallen so deeply in love with. I mean, Liza! Judy! ‘Dreams come true’ doesn’t even begin to cover it!”

Platt's residency will feature songs from Honeymind, which will be released May 31 via Interscope Records, as well as his earlier albums, Reverie and Sing to Me Instead. Click here to watch the music video for Honeymind's first single, "Andrew." 

The Palace Theatre has hosted legendary performers including Judy Garland, Josephine Baker, Harry Belafonte, Elvis Presley, Shirley MacLaine, Bette Midler, Diana Ross, Liza Minnelli, and more. The venue's last show was 2017's SpongeBob SquarePants.
