Dear Evan Hansen

Dear Evan Hansen

All his life, Evan Hansen has felt invisible. But when a tragic event shocks the community and thrusts him into the center of a rapidly evolving controversy, Evan is given the opportunity of a lifetime: the chance to be somebody else.

A new American musical, DEAR EVAN HANSEN is a deeply personal and profoundly contemporary story about a little lie that changes everything.
The journey began in the summer of 2015, with a smash hit world premiere engagement at Arena Stage in Washington DC.

Audiences and critics alike instantly fell in love with what Peter Marks of The Washington Post called: “A HEART-PIERCING TRIP TO THE PLACE THAT MUSICAL THEATER CAN SOMETIMES TAKE US TO.”

Next stop, a record-setting, sold-out run at New York’s Second Stage Theatre, where once again, this original musical stunned audiences and moved Charles Isherwood of The New York Times to proclaim: “THIS IS A SUPERB MUSICAL WITH GREAT HEART AND HUMOR.”

DEAR EVAN HANSEN, which pairs the three time Tony Award® nominated director Michael Greif (Rent, Next to Normal, Grey Gardens) with the Tony-nominated composing team of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (A Christmas Story, Dogfight, NBC’s “SMASH”) and award-winning playwright Steven Levenson (Showtime’s “Masters of Sex”) now takes the next step on its remarkable journey: Broadway.
