Both deeply personal and profoundly contemporary, Dear Evan Hansen is a bold new musical about life and the way we live it
A letter that was never meant to be seen, a lie that was never meant to be told, a life he never dreamed he could have. Evan Hansen is about to get the one thing he’s always wanted: a chance to finally fit in. .
Hailed by critics and audiences alike, Dear Evan Hansen, which pairs four time Tony Award® nominated director Michael Greif (Rent, Next to Normal, Grey Gardens) with the Oscar and Tony Award-winning composing team of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (A Christmas Story, Dogfight, NBC’s Smash and La La Land) and Tony Award-winner Steven Levenson (Roundabout’s If I Forget), is now the winner of six 2017 Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
