Dear Evan Hansen

4.8 (45) · Musicals

A timely and timeless new musical


“The most vital and important musical of a generation” (Daily Mail, Baz Bamigboye) with “a raw, relevant and exhilarating score” (BBC Radio London, Jonathan Phang) from the songwriters of The Greatest Showman and La La Land.

A timely and timeless new musical about struggling to connect in a hyperconnected world, DEAR EVAN HANSEN is the winner of 3 Olivier Awards for BEST NEW MUSICAL, BEST ORIGINAL SCORE and BEST ACTOR. It is also the winner of two WhatsOnStage Awards and a Critics’ Circle Theatre Award.

Both deeply personal and profoundly contemporary, DEAR EVAN HANSEN is “theatrical lightning. A true original, appealing directly to the heart” (International New York Times, Matt Wolf).
