Dear Evan Hansen follows Evan Hansen, an awkward teenager who suddenly finds himself in the "in-crowd" at high school. In a Dear Evan Hansen review for London Theatre, our critic said: "It's not just a musical for the social media age... Benj Pasek and Justin Paul's beautiful score... has integrity and depth that matches the story they have to tell."
Dear Evan Hansen features a book by Steven Levenson, a score by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, and direction by Michael Greif. Dear Evan Hansen choreography is by Danny Mefford, with scenic design by David Korins, costume design by Emily Rebholz, lighting design by Japhy Weideman, and sound design by Nevin Steinberg.
