About Dear Evan Hansen

Dear Evan Hansen is at the Music Box Theatre from December 11. Dear Evan Hansen tickets are on sale now.

After a world premiere production at the Arena Stage in Washington, D.C. in the summer of 2015 and an off-Broadway premiere with Second Stage Theater in the spring of 2016, the Dear Evan Hansen musical would be found and greenlit for a Broadway transfer. Officially opening at the Music Box Theatre on December 4, 2016, following previews from November 14, the musical soon became the most hyped and talked-about hit of the season. The show is both a critical and commercial megahit that has blossomed thanks to an unyielding fan base and social media presence. 

With the small cast of eight constantly engulfed on stage by Peter Nigrini's projections from various social media outlets, the idea is so cleverly staged: Despite the endless opportunities for interconnectivity in a virtual world, we are frequently left alone and isolated as human beings in the real world. The central character of Evan Hansen embodies this as an instantly recognisable outsider at high school, but the musical's appeal breaks into other demographics through the portrayal of Evan's mother, Heidi, and Connor's parents, Cynthia and Larry Murphy. Whether they are a single parent or desperately struggling in a relationship, their sense of loneliness is equally palpable. The themes of loss, regret, and trying to find our place in the world are so universal that teenagers, adults and seniors alike will have no choice but to relate.

With a non-traditional, Tony Award-winning score from the young and talented duo of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (the Oscar winners behind the movie musicals La La Land and The Greatest Showman), the musical's soundtrack has broken out of the Broadway bubble and has ranked in the Top 10 of the Billboard charts. It features hits such as "Waving Through a Window," "Requiem," and "You Will Be Found," and each number has its own unique feel as if written by the individual characters themselves as singer-songwriters. The score alone sets Dear Evan Hansen apart as a marvel of modern musical theatre and offers a perfect opportunity to break in a friend who may be completely new to the world of Broadway and seeks a change from jazz hands and tap shoes.

Dear Evan Hansen made a bona fide star out of original cast member Ben Platt, who deservedly picked up the Tony Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical for his efforts, and we are sure that many leading, young men will be found and will rise to the occasion in the years to come.

Dear Evan Hansen currently stars Jordan Fisher as Evan Hansen. Cast members who appeared in the production when the show closed in March 2020 include Gabrielle Carrubba (as Zoe Murphy), Jessica Phillips (as Heidi Hansen), David Jeffrey (as Connor Murphy), Christiane Noll (as Cynthia Murphy), Ivan Hernandez (as Larry Murphy), Jared Goldsmith (as Jared Kleinman), and Phoebe Koyabe (as Alana Beck).

Great acting, Riveting, Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if you like theatre with strong emotional content, or if you have ever felt isolated and alone, or if you are a teenager.

Don’t see it if you're looking for something light. This isn't a downer, but it also isn't a feel-good show.

More information about Dear Evan Hansen

All his life Evan Hansen has felt invisible. To his peers, to the girl he loves, sometimes even to his own mother. But that was before he wrote the letter - that led to the incident - that started the lie - that ignited a movement - that inspired a community - and changed Evan's status from the ultimate outsider into the somebody everyone wants to know. But how long can Evan keep his secret? And at what price? A tribute to the outsider in us all, Dear Evan Hansen is about someone you know, maybe even someone you are, but more than anything, it's about discovering the person we all long to be - ourselves.
