About the Show
2017 Tony Award® | 2018 Grammy Award®
A letter that was never meant to be seen, a lie that was never meant to be told, a life he never dreamed he could have. Evan Hansen is about to get the one thing he’s always wanted: a chance to finally fit in.
Both deeply personal and profoundly contemporary, DEAR EVAN HANSEN is a new musical about life and the way we live it.
DEAR EVAN HANSEN has struck a remarkable chord with audiences and critics everywhere. The New York Times calls it “a gut-punching, breathtaking knockout of a musical.” And NBC Nightly News calls this bold new musical “an anthem resonating on Broadway and beyond.”
“DEAR EVAN HANSEN, THANKS FOR FINDING US. WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR A MUSICAL LIKE YOU.
This heart-scorching musical about the struggle to connect feels like a hallmark of this particular moment in history. It’s an old-school interactive experience in which you show up in person and sit very close to whomever you came with. It’s a visceral exchange, one that feels primal and rare.”
— Susanna Schrobsdorff, Time
