Broadway's newest smash-hit!

Winner of Best Musical Theater Album at the 2018 Grammy Awards!

Following a critically acclaimed run at the Second Stage Theatre, this six-time Tony-winning comic musical has taken Broadway by storm! The poignant and thought-provoking production received rave reviews from critics for its unexpectedly touching portrayal of misunderstood youth, young love and the search for acceptance, all wrapped up in a perfectly pitched contemporary pop score by composing duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. Recognise their names? The Tony nominated and Oscar winning duo only also wrote the songs for the movie La La Land! Dear Evan Hansen won six 2017 Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Leading Actor for Ben Platt.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Dear Evan Hansen is a cautionary tale about how a lie can spread across a community before the truth even has its running shoes on. The Evan of the story is an anxiety-ridden high school misfit who is desperate for any form of recognition from his peers. So much so, that when his classmate commits suicide after suffering depression, a mysterious suicide note appears in the weeks after, seemingly addressed to Evan.

Now infamous by association with the dead teen, Evan finally gains the spotlight that he craves. However, with a traumatized local community, not to mention his family, starts begging Evan for more clues about Connor's state of mind, Evan's world starts to unravel with frightening speed. With Connor's parents and sister Zoe (who just happens to be Evan's crush) finding solace in the note, it isn't long before the powers of social media start to question its validity, and Evan's own motives.

Exploring the angst of modern youth

Teen angst and grief collide in this intelligent take on what it means to be young, in love, an outcast and lonely in modern life. With a book by the award-winning, up and coming young writer Steven Levenson (Masters Of Sex and Wayward Pines), and helmed by the three-time Tony nominee Michael Greif (the man behind the 1996 smash hit Rent and most recently If/Then), Dear Evan Hansen is making its mark as one of the most socially relevant musicals in recent years.

Get dressed, pack your tissues, and go see this show!

Dear Evan Hansen beautifully explores the search for love, dealing with grief, loneliness, and self-exploration while being surrounded by digital noise. We may have mastered worldwide connectivity but have we begun to conquer the power of commun
