“HISTORIC. Dear Evan Hansen holds audiences in an intense emotional grip. It will have you laughing, and at other times choking back tears, in sheer wonderment.”
The Washington Post
“An important addition to the 21st Century Musical”
“A GORGEOUS NEW MUSICAL FOR ANYONE WITH A BEATING HEART.”
The New York Times
“EXTRAORDINARY AND THRILLINGLY CONTEMPORARY. With a spectacularly rich book and a score that brings tears to your eyes, it’s the best Broadway show of the year.”
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 American musical about life and the way we live it.
