Dear Evan Hansen tickets

A heart-wrenching, uplifting musical

From the creators of The Greatest Showman and La La Land comes one of the most hotly anticipated new musicals, Dear Evan Hansen. This deeply personal story about social media, mental health and teenage struggles made its UK premier at the Noel Coward Theatre in London in 2019 and has become one of the most important contemporary West End musicals.

Dear Evan Hansen took Broadway by storm when it opened in 2016 and was nominated for nine Tony Awards. It won six, including Best Musical, Best Book, Best Score, Best Actor and Best Featured Actress.

The Dear Evan Hansen West End production first opened in November 2019 at the Noel Coward Theatre, receiving widespread critical acclaim. Sam Tutty, who was London’s first Evan Hansen, won the Olivier Award for Best Actor in a Musical. He is one of the youngest actors to win the award, being only 22 at the time.

What is Dear Evan Hansen about?

The Dear Evan Hansen musical explores many contemporary and hard-hitting themes such as social anxiety and isolation, mental health, youth suicide and social media. The plot follows the socially awkward Evan Hansen as he struggles with mental illness and a recently broken arm, along with the usual teenage issues of bullying, crushes and loneliness. On advice from his therapist, he starts writing letters to himself with a positive message each day.

When a classmate, Connor, steals one of Evan’s letters and later commits suicide, the boy’s parents find the letter and assume that he and Evan were secretly best friends. Evan lets this lie grow until it spreads around the whole school and eventually, Evan’s false testimonies of his friendship with the deceased boy go viral – bringing Evan popularity like he could never have imagined and even a kiss from his crush. But will Evan truly want to continue with this falsehood and what are the consequences of living in such a lie?

Who wrote Dear Evan Hansen?

The music and lyrics for Dear Evan Hansen were written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (known collectively as Pasek and Paul) and the book is by Steven Levenson.

Pasek and Paul have achieved great success as song writers, having written the music for wildly popular musical films The Greatest Showman and La La Land. Their other song writing credits include musical adaptations of James and the Giant Peach, Dogfight and A Christmas Story. Their early musical Edges, which they began writing as undergraduates, gained widespread popularity on social media and has seen productions across the world.

The Dear Evan Hansen London cast

The current Dear Evan Hansen West End cast stars Sam Tutty in his Olivier Award-winning performance as Evan Hansen. Principle cast include Lucy Anderson as Zoe Murphy, Rebecca McKinnis as Heidi Hansen, Doug Colling as Connor Murphy, Lauren Ward as Cynthia Murphy, Iona Fraser as Alana Beck and Rupert Young as Larry Murphy.

Marcus Harman is the alternate Evan Hansen as well as understudy Connor Murphy and Jared Kleinman. Tricia Adele-Turner is understudy Heidi Hansen and Cynthia Murphy. Haydn Cox is understudy Connor Murphy and Jared Kleinman.

What songs are in the Dear Evan Hansen musical

Key songs from Dear Evan Hansen include “Waving Through a Window”, “Sincerely, Me”, “Requiem”, “Only Us” and the immensely popular “You Will be Found”, the original Broadway cast recording of which has over 22 million views on the show’s official YouTube channel.

The original Broadway cast recording was released in 2017 and debuted at number 8 on the Billboard 200. In 2018 the Dear Evan Hansen Original Cast Recording: Deluxe Album was released. This version featured songs cut from the original album as well as a cover of “Waving Through a Window” by Katy Perry.

Is there a Dear Evan Hansen movie?

The Dear Evan Hansen film was released in 2021 and was directed by The Perks of Being a Wallflower director Stephen Chbosky. The film features Broadway’s original Evan Hansen, Ben Platt, in the title role. Platt’s father Marc Platt was one of the producers.

While there was a large degree of excitement amongst fans for a movie adaptation, the film was a commercial and critical disappointment. Many critics felt the stagey aspects of the production did not translate well to film. Some felt that Ben Platt was too old for the role of Evan by the time of filming and others disagreed with the film’s treatment of mental health issues.

While responses to the film are mixed and mostly negative, the stage production remains a powerful commercial and critical force on Broadway, the West End and elsewhere.

Dear Evan Hansen was a show I’ve listened to and loved for 3 years now, great story and music. However, I was a little disappointed with this production. We had a few understudies and lines were missed, vocals were not great at all as voices cracked and the emotion wasn’t there. Saying that, the projections and set were incredible!

What a moving show! Each second I had the emotion held that Evan’s story gave the audience. The songs were just amazing and the act 1 finale ended the first act very well and the finale wrapped up the show with a nice ribbon. My favourite character was Alana Beck which was portrayed perfectly by the actor playing her. 100% have to see it again with the rest of my family before it closes on the 22nd October.

It's the best show. Seen it twice now. ALL the cast are amazing and it's hard to see how they put so much emotion into each performance. I shed a few small tears at a couple of points in the show, and Sam Tutty's comic timing is great.

I didn't really know the story before attending - only really going as I had the time off work already, and I liked several of the songs from the show. I was really bowled over by how emotionally powerful it was - I really thoroughly enjoyed it. It felt a bit "slow" in the middle, but only for a short time. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone, especially if they didn't have the best time at school!

Excellent show. Very original storyline. Contemporary. Felt like a big cast and I was really surprised when only 8 people were taking bows. Every one of the cast was really good. Take tissues as there’s a few heart-breaking moments!

Been desperate to see this show for soooooo long and I wasn’t disappointed and enjoyed the whole thing. One negative comment is that at times the volume of the singing was too loud , and came out (my opinion) as screeching and I had to cover my ears as it was “painful “ to listen to. However , the acting was superb and something you need to put on your bucket list. I wouldn’t say this was suitable for someone with Autism. The flashing bright lights and the loud noise could upset someone who is “sensitive”.
