Our Review 4 / 5

The smash-hit Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen transferred to London’s Noel Coward Theatre in November 2019, with tickets for this exciting production now on sale.

From the writers of La La Land and The Greatest Showman, Dear Evan Hansen is the hit Broadway musical about a teenage boy who finds it difficult to talk to people and make friends. However, following a tragic event involving one of his classmates, he finds himself drawn closer to a group of people for the first time in his life.

The cast of the musical is lead by Sam Tutty, who was picked for the show straight out of stage school, having graduated from Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts in February and taking part in open auditions with some 8,000 other hopefuls. The role has previously been played by Ben Platt in the West End, who went on to win the Tony Award for best actor in a musical for his performance. 

Tutty is joined by fellow West End cast members Lucy Anderson, Doug Colling, Marcus Harman, Rebecca McKinnis, Lauren Ward, Rupert Young, Jack Loxton, Nicole Raquel Dennis, Tricia Adele-Turner, David Breeds, Haydn Cox, Natalie Kassanga, Hannah Lindsey, Mark Peachey, Courtney Stapleton, Alex Thomas-Smith and James Winter.

Dear Evan Hansen opens in London at the Noel Coward Theatre in the West End in November 2019 having begun previews on 29th October, with tickets available now. Booking for the show has also extended through to May 2020, following phenomenal ticket demand. 

Dear Evan Hansen opened on Broadway at the Music Box Theatre in 2016, and was an instant hit, loved for its story, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul’s score, and the leading performance of Platt in the title role. The musical picked up 6 Tony Awards in 2017 including best musical, best book of a musical and best original score, which includes “Waving Through a Window”, “Anybody Have a Map?” and “You Will Be Found”.

The musical has been a cult hit, with recordings of the show's songs being released by the likes of Katy Perry and in Marck 2018, Platt and Lin-Manuel Miranda released a mash-up version of "You Will Be Found" from Hansen and "The Story of Tonight" from Miranda's Hamilton.

Dear Evan Hansen tickets are available now.

Please note: There is a strictly-enforced limit of 6 tickets per person, per booking period.

Dear Evan Hansen reviews

"Don’t just sit there, get tickets. Get tickets for your whole family and your best buddies. Give a pair of tickets to the person who delivers your mail."
Margret Echeverria, New York Theatre Guide

"While the show revolves around teenagers, this isn’t High School Musical or Grease, but a very adult musical... It’s a powerful, intimate, original and redemptive story."
Mark Shenton, The Stage

"This gorgeous heartbreaker of a musical has grown in emotional potency during its journey to the big leagues, after first being produced in Washington and off-Broadway. Rarely – scratch that — never have I heard so many stifled sobs and sniffles in the theater."
Charles Isherwood, New York Times

"Benj Pasek and Justin Paul’s score, orchestrated by Alex Lacamoire, brims with tuneful and thoughtful songs that sound, as few Broadway songs do, like they could be on the radio tomorrow; Evan’s first number, “Waving Through a Window,” is an instant classic."
Adam Feldman, Time Out

"What's perhaps most distinctive about the melodic emo-pop score for Dear Evan Hansen is how beautifully it captures the peaks and valleys of adolescence, in the thoughtful lyrics and in the music itself, given expressive orchestrations by Hamilton Tony winner Alex Lacamoire."
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

Throughout his life, teenager Evan Hansen has felt invisible: his school friends, the girl he loves, and his own family look straight through him. Having struggled to make friends, his therapist suggests Evan writes a daily letter to himself focussing on what will be good about that day, but some days he simply runs out of hope for his future.

Our Review of Dear Evan Hansen


Everybody's Talking About Jamie has just celebrated its 2nd birthday in the West End, a joyous musical about a British teenager embracing and asserting his gay drag identity at a Sheffield school at which he defiantly and unapologetically decides to go to his end of year prom in a dress. But now everybody will also be talking about Evan Hansen, another teenager at the centre of a musical, but this one's American and far more emotionally insecure. Read more
