Dear Evan Hansen

About the show

Please note that performances of Dear Evan Hansen have been postponed in response to government advice regarding coronavirus (COVID-19). It will resume performances as early as is practical.

Fresh from Tony Award-winning success on Broadway comes Pasek and Paul’s stunning new musical Dear Evan Hansen. Transferring to the West End following a hugely successful US premiere, including a sold-out national tour, the heartfelt story follows teenager Evan Hansen as he tries to cope with a lie that spirals out of control.

What does it feel like to not fit in? Evan Hansen has spent his whole life feeling invisible; coming from a broken home with limited friends, he wishes for a different life. When a letter that was never meant to be seen is found, a dangerous lie rapidly spirals out of control. Soon, Evan begins to get everything he has ever dreamed of. But at what price?

Dear Evan Hansen features a book by Steven Levenson and music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who created the scores for the incredibly successful La La Land and The Greatest Showman. With a soundtrack that is already beloved by fans across the world, the production features emotional songs including “Waving Through a Window”, “Requiem” and “You Will Be Found”.

Michael Greif (Rent, Next to Normal, If/Then) directs the musical, which features choreography by Danny Mefford, orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, set design by David Korins, costume design by Emily Rebholz, lighting design by Japhy Weideman and sound design by Nevin Steinberg.

Original Broadway casting included Ben Platt in the title role, for which he earned a Tony Award. Further awards included Best Musical and Best Score.

In the West End, Dear Evan Hansen is led by new British talent, with Evan played by Italia Conti Academy graduate Sam Tutty. Tutty most recently appeared in Once On This Island at Southwark Playhouse. He is joined by recent graduate Lucy Anderson as Zoe, Rebecca McKinnis (Everybody's Talking About Jamie) as Heidi, Doug Colling as Connor, Lauren Ward and Rupert Young as Cynthia and Larry Murphy, Jack Loxton as Jared and Nicole Raquel Dennis as Alana.

An uplifting, profound and heart-wrenching new musical, Dear Evan Hansen has achieved worldwide success through resonating with a contemporary audience. A musical for anyone who has ever felt like they are not seen, Dear Evan Hansen arrives in the West End to play at the Noel Coward Theatre, with previews beginning on 29 October 2019.
