The newest superstar of Broadway

Winner of Best Musical Theater Album at the 2018 Grammy Awards

Following its hugely successful run at Broadway's Music Box Theater, this darkly comic musical is set to tour across the country from Fall 2018, kicking off in Denver. The six-time Tony winning, poignant and thought-provoking production has received rave reviews from critics for its unexpectedly touching portrayal of misunderstood youth, young love and the search for acceptance, with a score from the composing team behind 2017's Academy Award-winning La-La Land, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Dear Evan Hansen is a cautionary tale about how a lie can spread across a community long before the truth even has a look in. The eponymous Evan of the story is an anxiety-ridden high school misfit who is desperate for any form of recognition from his peers. So much so, that when his classmate Connor commits suicide after suffering depression, a mysterious suicide note appears in the weeks after, seemingly addressed to Evan.

Now infamous by association with the dead teen, Evan finally gains the spotlight that he craves. However, with a traumatized local community, not to mention his family, starts begging Evan for more clues about Connor's state of mind, Evan's world starts to unravel with frightening speed. With Connor's parents and sister Zoe (who just happens to be Evan's crush) finding solace in the note, it isn't long before the powers of social media start to question its validity, and Evan's own motives.

Exploring the angst of modern youth

Teen angst and grief collide in this intelligent take on what it means to be young, in love, an outcast and lonely in modern life. With a book by the award-winning, up and coming young writer Steven Levenson (Masters Of Sex and Wayward Pines), and helmed by the three-time Tony nominee Michael Greif (the man behind the 1996 smash hit Rent and most recently If/Then), Dear Evan Hansen is making its mark as one of the most socially relevant musicals in recent years.
