Dear Evan Hansen is to close in London’s West End in October.

With a score written by Dogfight and The Greatest Showman songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul and a book by Steven Levenson, Dear Evan Hansen proved a huge hit on Broadway where it opened in 2016.

The West End production, which opened at Noel Coward Theatre in November 2019, has announced it is to play its final performance on 22 October 2022.

The current cast is led by Olivier Award winner Sam Tutty in the title role of Evan Hansen having been performing in the role since opening.

He’s joined by Lucy Anderson (Zoe Murphy), Doug Colling (Connor Murphy), Marcus Harman (who plays Evan Hansen at certain performances), Jack Loxton (Jared Kleinman), Rebecca McKinnis (Heidi Hansen), Lauren Ward (Cynthia Murphy), Rupert Young (Larry Murphy) and Iona Fraser (Alana Beck).

Completing the current company are Tricia Adele-Turner, Haydn Cox, Kristen Gaetz, Ellis Kirk, Hannah Lindsey, Samantha Mbolekwa, Mark Peachey, Hannah Qureshi, James Winter and Mitchell Zhangazha.

Dear Evan Hansen tells the story of socially awkward teenager Evan. In his last year of high school and with only one person he considers a friend, an assignment from his therapist leads to a misunderstanding that casts him in the centre of a tragedy.

As well as Tutty’s win, the West End production won the Olivier for Best New Musical and Best Original Score.
