Evan Hansen has never truly felt like he has fitted in. Coming from a broken home with limited friends at school, he wishes for a different life. When a letter that was never meant to be seen gets found, a lie begins to spiral out of control, and he begins to get everything he dreamed of. But at what price?
With a book by Steven Levenson and music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land, The Greatest Showman), the musical already features show-stopping numbers including “Waving Through a Window”, “Requiem” and “You Will Be Found”.
Dear Evan Hansen is directed by Michael Greif (Rent, Next to Normal, If/Then) and 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.
On Broadway, casting included Ben Platt in the title role, for which he earned a Tony Award. A profoundly emotional musical that is guaranteed to strike a chord with audiences of all ages, the contemporary show resonates deeply with anyone who simply wishes to be seen. Playing at the Royal Alexandra Theatre, Dear Evan Hansen runs from 5 March to 26 May 2019.
