A letter that was never meant to be seen, a lie that was never meant to be told, a life he never dreamed could be his. Evan Hansen is about to get the one thing he's always wanted: a chance to belong.

Deeply personal and profoundly universal, Dear Evan Hansen is a groundbreaking American musical about truth, fiction, and the price we're willing to pay for the possibility to connect.

The musical, with a book by Steven Levenson and music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, opened on Broadway at the Music Box Theatre in December 2016, after its world premiere at the Arena Stage in Washington, DC, in July 2015 and an Off-Broadway production in March to May 2016.

Dear Evan Hansen won six Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score.

'A gorgeous new musical. It should appeal to just about anyone who has ever felt, at some point in life, that he or she was trapped "on the outside looking in," as one lyric has it. Which is just about everybody with a beating heart.'

- New York Times

Steven Levenson is an American playwright whose plays include If I Forget, The Unavoidable Disappearance of Tom Durnin, Core Values, The Language of Trees, and Seven Minutes in Heaven. He wrote the book for the musical Dear Evan Hansen. He was a writer and producer on Showtime’s Masters of Sex.
