“A gut-punching, breathtaking knockout of a musical” – New York Times
The musical’s plot centers around the titular character Evan Hansen, a high school student who suffers from extreme social anxiety that results in loneliness and isolation. When fellow student Connor disappears, Evan fabricates a lie that unexpectedly brings him closer to Connor’s family and sends him on a journey of self discovery and ultimately purpose.
“Across the board, the ensemble is superb, each of them registering rich moments of emotional complexity” – Hollywood Reporter
The musical was nominated for a staggering nine Tony awards, which it won 6, including Best Musical, Best Score, Best Actor in a Musical, and Best Featured Actress in a Musical. Dear Evan Hansen has been highly praised by critics across the board since it first opened at the Music Box Theatre in 2016, and immensely popular with audiences of all ages.
“Not since “Next to Normal” has a score tapped so deeply into the troubled psyche of its needy protagonist” – Variety
One of the first major musicals to seriously tackle the theme of mental illness in a high school setting, against the backdrop of the overwhelming prevalence and power of social media, Dear Evan Hansen brings to life a world that perfectly echoes the modern—day experiences of many teenagers, and has served us a major cultural influence for those suffering with mental illnesses, and it does so through superlative acting from the cast and incredible songs and lyrics by the brilliant Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.
