… or is Rupert tall?
The latter is true! And tbh I think he only gets taller.
Check out this delightful Instagram post from Lucy Anderson, who plays Rupert’s stage-daughter in Dear Evan Hansen. The cast and the show received numerous nominations in the Olivier Awards 2020. Lucy was congratulating the Olivier Awards 2022 nominees, while sharing an earlier photo of the DEH cast.
Are we all small or is @rupertfyoung tall?
Sending my congratulations to all those nominated at this year’s @olivierawards.
Whether you’re a nominee, an actor, someone who works in technical theatre, an understudy or swing, a drama school student, a waitress who’s working in the day and learning audition sides at night, freelancer, someone working 3 jobs to be able to pay for classes and casting workshops.. everyone in this industry from top to bottom, left to right matters. Its been a very tough time. Covid has affected this industry and those involved in so many ways, more ways than even I’d imagined. But slowly and surely.. we’re coming back.
If you’re reading this lovely post about theatre.. may I also draw your attention to the crisis in Ukraine.
Donate. Spread resources. Even if all you’re able to do is keep them in your thoughts, it’s enough. 🇺🇦
P.S. See this post for an instance of Rupert looking (slightly) smaller by comparison!
Rupert shared this photo of him and Amy with her sign on Instagram. It’s great to know he’s still feeling the love! Thanks to Amy for her efforts!
Thank you @amydamara for making and holding up this huge sign from the audience with these profound words at the curtain call of @dehwestend the other night. I fully endorse and encourage this behaviour!
Rupert appears in this performance of “You Will Be Found” by the Dear Evan Hansen West End cast – backed by a full orchestra. This was part of ITV’s All Star Musicals, broadcast for the festive season, 2021.
“I know you!”
It’s been a long time @rupertfyoung ! Since graduating @lamdadrama in 2003, life has taken us in many different directions but it feels so good to now have you as a @dmtwestend neighbour in @dehwestend The noisy next door neighbours have arrived! 🐅 🛶 🦓 🦧 🐢 Great to catch up.

Rupert and Doug Colling play father and son, Larry and Connor Murphy, in Dear Evan Hansen West End. They talk in this short video about the emotion involved in at last returning to the stage, after a 587-day break due to the pandemic. The video was shared on Twitter by the official @DEHWestEnd account.
There’s obviously a lot of love there!
The full Dear Evan Hansen West End cast rehearsing on 9 October 2021 or thereabouts, in anticipation of at last returning to the stage on 26 October.
They totally nail the song “You Will Be Found”, of course – but this is also worth watching for Rupert (a) totally rocking his Bridgerton sideburns and (b) still taking this mask stuff seriously. (God I love this man… ♥)
