WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
All his life, Evan Hansen has felt invisible. Then tragedy strikes, forcing him into the center of a community controversy. At last he has the chance to become somebody else — somebody who fits in.
Dear Evan Hansen is a new, deeply personal musical about living and lying in the world today. It first opened off-Broadway in a production that received an Obie and Outer Critics Circle Award for best musical. Much of the original cast, including its Obie-winning star, Ben Platt, have transferred with the show to Broadway. Another Obie winner, Steven Levenson, wrote the musical's book; the music and lyrics are by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. Tony Award nominee Michael Greif (Rent, Next to Normal) directs.
