About Dear Evan Hansen

See it before the final performance on September 18.

"Dear Evan Hansen" is the deeply personal and profoundly contemporary musical about life and the way we live it.

A letter that was never meant to be seen, a lie that was never meant to be told, a life he never dreamed he could have. Evan Hansen is about to get the one thing he’s always wanted: a chance to finally fit in.

The winner of six Tony Awards (including Best Musical) and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album, "Dear Evan Hansen" features a book by Tony Award winner Steven Levenson, a score by Grammy, Tony and Academy Award winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land, The Greatest Showman), and direction by four-time Tony Award nominee Michael Greif (Rent, Next to Normal).

"Dear Evan Hansen" opened on Broadway at the Music Box Theatre on December 4, 2016, where it’s broken all box office records and has struck a chord with critics and audiences alike.

Great acting, Riveting, Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if you like theatre with strong emotional content, or if you have ever felt isolated and alone, or if you are a teenager.

Don’t see it if you're looking for something light. This isn't a downer, but it also isn't a feel-good show.

More information about Dear Evan Hansen

The day you see Dear Evan Hansen on Broadway is going to be a good day, and here's why. Oscar-winning songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul penned the Tony-winning score for the musical alongside playwright Steven Levenson, who also won a Tony for the show’s book. Not to mention that the show won Best Musical in 2017. But you can only see this show on Broadway through September 18, so get Dear Evan Hansen tickets now.

In the Dear Evan Hansen musical, the title character is having a hard time. He broke his arm over the summer and is nervous for his first day of senior year. To confront his anxiousness, his therapist asks him to write a letter to himself as an exercise. So he writes, “Dear Evan Hansen, today is going to be a good day, and here’s why.”

At school, he runs into his crush, Zoe Murphy, and fumbles over the conversation. Then her loner brother Connor takes a surprising turn and signs Evan’s cast. But while Evan prints out his letter assignment in the computer lab, Connor steals the letter and runs off. The next day, Evan goes to the principal’s office where the Murphys reveal that Connor killed himself, mistake Evan’s letter for Connor’s suicide note, and assume Evan was his friend.

As Evan slowly lets the family believe the lie, he finds comfort in their home life, so unlike his own where his single working mother Heidi is struggling to get by. But as soon as the lie becomes bigger and bigger, Evan must figure out how to confront his reality and find a way to connect beyond the falsehood.

Michael Greif, director of Pulitzer Prize-winning Broadway shows like Rent and Next to Normal, helms the show, which The New York Times calls “a gorgeous heartbreaker of a musical.” “The musical is ideal for families looking for something yeastier and more complex than the usual sugary diversions,” The Times raved. “But then it should also appeal to just about anyone who has ever felt, at some point in life, that he or she was trapped ‘on the outside looking in,’ as one lyric has it. Which is just about everybody with a beating heart.”

What to Watch For

  • Dear Evan Hansen composer and lyricists Benj Pasek and Justin Paul based the premise for the musical on a real-life incident from Pasek’s high school.
  • The Dear Evan Hansen musical had its world premiere in Washington D.C. at Arena Stage and premiered off Broadway at Second Stage Theater before moving to the Music Box Theatre on Broadway.
  • Pasek, Paul, and Levenson wrote the role of Evan Hansen for Ben Platt, who went on to win a Tony Award for Best Actor for his performance as Evan. Platt is no longer playing Evan on Broadway, but he reprised the role in the 2021 film adaptation of the musical.
  • The Act 1 finale “You Will Be Found” was not initially part of the show. The song, which has become a kind of anthem and central message for the musical, was written for Dear Evan Hansen on Broadway. The original Act 1 finale was called “A Part Of Me.”
  • The Act 1 finale incorporates videos from real fans holding up signs that say “You Will Be Found.” When the show premiered in New York, the producers solicited videos on YouTube from fans, and the footage is part of the projections during the song.
