World-Premiere Original Musical
Dear Evan Hansen

Book by Steven Levenson
Lyrics and Music by Ben Pasek & Justin Paul
Starring Ben Platt
Directed by Michael Greif
Pasek & Paul are "The heirs to Rodgers and Hammerstein."
A letter, a lie, a life he never dreamed he could have.
Evan Hansen (Pitch Perfect's Ben Platt) is about to get everything he’s ever wanted: the girl of his dreams, the perfect family he’s always longed for and a chance to finally fit in. He just has to hope that his chance to connect isn’t blown by the secrets he has to conceal.
Featuring a score by Tony Award nominees Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (A Christmas Story, Dogfight), a book by Steven Levenson (Masters of Sex) and directed by three-time Tony nominee Michael Greif (Rent, Next to Normal), Dear Evan Hansen is a moving and original musical about more than how we share, like or friend; it’s about how we love, feel and survive in the modern world.
Dear Evan Hansen is the recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award.
