Dear Evan Hansen – Ben Platt Laura Drefuss
Book by Steven Levenson / Music & Lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul – Who Is Evan Hansen
Evan Now Playing on Broadway
All his life Evan Hansen has felt invisible. To his peers, to the girl he loves, sometimes even to his own mother. But that was before he wrote the letter – that led to the incident- that started the lie – that ignited a movement – that inspired a community – and changed Evan’s status from the ultimate outsider into the somebody everyone wants to know. But how long can Evan keep his secret? And at what price?
Dear Evan Hansen is the original new musical making its New York premiere this spring at Second Stage Theatre, following a sold-out run in Washington, D.C., where The New York Times hailed it as “entertainingly smart and radiating charm, wit and humour.” The musical unites the award-winning creators behind some of Second Stage’s most celebrated productions. A brand new score features the talents of the Tony-nominated composing team Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (A Christmas Story, Dogfight and NBC’s “Smash”). Directed by three-time Tony nominee Michael Greif(Rent, Next to Normal, Grey Gardens) and written by Steven Levenson (Showtime’s “Masters of Sex”).
