Winner of 6 TONY Awards including Best Musical and critically acclaimed as "One of the most remarkable shows in musical theatre history.” – The Washington Post
A letter that was never meant to be seen, a lie that was never meant to be told, a life he never dreamed he could have. Evan Hansen is about to get the one thing he's always wanted: a chance to finally fit in.
Both deeply personal and profoundly contemporary, DEAR EVAN HANSEN is a new American musical about life and the way we live it.
DEAR EVAN HANSEN has struck a remarkable chord with audiences and critics everywhere. The New York Times calls it "a gorgeous new musical for anyone with a beating heart." And NBC Nightly News calls this bold new musical "an anthem resonating on Broadway and beyond."
Hailed by critics and audiences alike, this bold new musical moved Peter Marks of The Washington Post to declare it:
"A HEART-PIERCING TRIP TO THE PLACE THAT MUSICAL THEATER CAN SOMETIMES TAKE US TO.”
And Charles Isherwood of The New York Times to call it:
"A FRESH, VIBRANT NEW MUSICAL THAT OPENS THE HEART AND THE MIND.”
DEAR EVAN HANSEN, which pairs the three time Tony Award® nominated director Michael Greif (Rent, Next to Normal, Grey Gardens) with the Tony-nominated composing team of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (A Christmas Story, Dogfight, NBC's "SMASH") and award-winning playwright Steven Levenson (Showtime's "Masters of Sex") now takes the next step on its remarkable journey: Broadway.

Insightful, funny, tearful at times, poignant and a great night of theatre that provides for great discussion after the play. If you have teenagers - this is a must see!
Pros: It is a touching , revealing and interesting way to explore pop culture, social media, and how the human struggle to rise above and beyond our human flaws. This is a fantastic play to take any teen who struggles with anxiety or very introverted. Conversely, it is a GREAT play to take anyone to show them the affect each of us has on another person.
Cons: If you expect or want a traditional Broadway style play, with bold scenery and activity this is not your play. Go see Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, Phantom of the Opera, etc. This show is about the dialogue, topic, and more contemporary type of Broadway show.
