Dear Evan Hansen London is coming to the West End – here’s all you need to know about the show!
With a score written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (Dogfight, The Greatest Showman) and a book by Steven Levenson Dear Evan Hansen has proved a huge hit on Broadway.
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.
Evan’s life begins to look the way he always hoped it would, he’s finally found a way to fit in but can he maintain it?
The original Broadway production starred Pitch Perfect’s Ben Platt and received nine nominations, winning six including Best Musical, Best Book, Best Score and Best Actor for Platt.
Now Dear Evan Hansen is on its way to London’s West End in 2019.
