Ben Platt and the cast of Dear Evan Hansen perform at the 71st Annual Tony Awards on Sunday, June 11, 2017 in New York City.

A letter that should never have been read, a lie that should never have been told, a life that he never dreamed of. Evan Hansen is about to get what he always wanted: a chance to finally fit in. Dear Evan Hansen is a deeply personal and very contemporary musical about life and how we live it.

Dear Evan Hansen received a remarkable response from audiences and critics around the world, including The Washington Post, which called Dear Evan Hansen “theatrical magic.” One of the greatest shows in musical theater history.” The New York Times calls it “a thrilling knockout of the musical”. And NBC Nightly News declares the musical “an anthem that resonates on Broadway and beyond.”

Dear Evan Hansen features a book by Tony Award winner Stephen Levenson, music by Grammy, Tony and Oscar winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land, The Greatest Showman) and directed by four-time Tony Award nominee Michael Greif (Rent, Next to Normal).
