Platt broke out as Benji in the 2012 hit film Pitch Perfect and that same year was cast as Elder Cunningham in the Chicago production of The Book of Mormon. He then transferred to the Broadway production in 2014. He created the role of Evan Hansen in Dear Evan Hansen from early readings through the out-of-town tryout at Arena Stage in Washington, D.C., to Off-Broadway’s Second Stage, and, finally, Broadway. Along with the 2017 Tony Award, Platt earned the Distinguished Performance Award by the Drama League and was the youngest performer ever to do so.
