‘Dear Evan Hansen’ to reopen at Noel Coward Theatre in October
The production won best new musical at the 2020 Olivier Awards.
The West End production of Dear Evan Hansen will reopen at the Noël Coward Theatre this autumn. Dear Evan Hansen will resume performances from 26 October, with an upcoming performance dedicated to mental health care workers and volunteers. Dear Evan Hansen tickets in London are on sale now.
Speaking about the musical’s return to London, producer Stacey Mindich said: ““Mental well-being has become a core part of our show’s narrative over the years, and we hear from so many audience members about how the show has helped them on their own journeys to mental wellness.”
Dear Evan Hansen follows the titular character as he navigates high school, finding an unconventional way to fit in and creating a global community. Dear Evan Hansen began performances at the Noël Coward Theatre in November 2019, winning three Olivier Awards including best new musical.
Casting for Dear Evan Hansen’s London return is to be announced. When theatres closed in March 2020, the cast included Sam Tutty as Evan Hansen, joined by Lucy Anderson, Doug Colling, Marcus Harman, Rebecca McKinnis, Lauren Ward, Rupert Young, Jack Loxton and Nicole Raquel Dennis.
Dear Evan Hansen features a book by Steven Levenson, with music and lyrics by the Academy Award-winning composer and lyricist Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.
