Dear Evan Hansen

Dear Evan Hansen

4.7 (45) · Musicals

The winner of six 2017 Tony Awards including Best Musical and the 2018 Grammy Award

“Dear Evan Hansen is a very exciting new landmark on the West End. Like Hamilton, it's a big Broadway hit with a difference. It has been praised for its exploration of teenage anxiety, suicide and mental health – and although it delves into some serious subject matter, it is far more joyful than it is sombre. It has already sold huge numbers of tickets, so if this Tony Award-winner sounds intriguing you should definitely book soon if you want a decent choice of tickets.”


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.

Both deeply personal and profoundly contemporary, DEAR EVAN HANSEN is a new musical about life and the way we live it.

DEAR EVAN HANSEN has struck a remarkable chord with audiences and critics everywhere. The New York Times calls it “a gut-punching, breathtaking knockout of a musical.” And NBC Nightly News calls this bold new musical “an anthem resonating on Broadway and beyond.”
