Dear Evan Hansen will return to London’s West End in October, it has been announced.
The show will reopen at the Noel Coward Theatre on 26 October 2021 with tickets on sale now here.
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 has proved a huge hit on Broadway.
The new West End production originally opened at Noel Coward Theatre on November 19, 2019.
The transfer won three Olivier Awards last year, including Best Musical and Best Original Score.
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.
Casting for the run when it reopens is to be confirmed.
Prior to the pandemic, newcomer Sam Tutty appeared in the title role of Evan Hansen, winning the Olivier Award for Best Actor in a Musical.
He was joined by Rebecca McKinnis playing Evan’s mum Heidi, Lucy Anderson as Zoe Murphy and Doug Colling as Connor Murphy with Lauren Ward and Rupert Young as their parents Cynthia & Larry Murphy.
Jack Loxton played Jared with Nicole Raquel Dennis as Alana. Marcus Harman played alternate Evan in certain performances.
Alongside the West End and Broadway productions, a Dear Evan Hansen movie is set for release in October in the UK.
It will see Ben Platt reprise his role after originating the title character on Broadway, for which he won a Tony award.
