If you haven't seen the Broadway hit "Dear Evan Hansen" yet, RUN, don’t walk (Rach agrees!).

Oh, and bring tissues!

The Tony-winning star of the critically acclaimed show Ben Platt took his final bow as Evan Hansen in November -- and our friend Noah Galvin stepped into the role!

"It was scary," Noah tells Rach of taking the torch from Ben. "It was a little daunting."

"It was a lovely challenge, though," the former "The Real O'Neals" star continues. "There was a big part of me that wanted to make it as different as possible and put my own spin on it, and I think inherently I do, just because I’m a different actor."

(We're pretty sure he's nailing it.)

And on top of having big shoes to fill, some people (Rach included!) will be surprised to learn that this is also Noah’s Broadway DEBUT.

What?!

"I spent a lot of time off Broadway doing weird, contemporary new works," Noah explains. "I’ve worked at pretty much every Off Broadway theater in New York."

Ah, that explains his impressively long list of credits!

"It's about time!" Rach jokes of Noah finally being invited on the Great White Way.

We had been patiently waiting too, Rach!
