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?
DEAR EVAN HANSEN is an original musical that unites the award-winning creators. A brand new score features the talents of the Tony®-nominated composing team Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (A Christmas Story, Dogfight and NBC’s “Smash”). Directed by three-time Tony nominee Michael Greif (Rent, Next to Normal, Grey Gardens) and written by award-winning playwright Steven Levenson.
