Dear Evan Hansen wins big at Olivier Awards 2020Monday, October 26, 2020
The recipients of the Olivier Awards 2020 were announced last night (Sunday 25 October), with NHB-published Dear Evan Hansen one of the ceremony's big winners.
The acclaimed, groundbreaking show by Steven Levenson, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul took home three prizes: Best New Musical, Best Original Score or New Orchestrations, and Best Actor in a Musical (Sam Tutty). Its Olivier Awards wins follow the huge success of Dear Evan Hansen's Broadway premiere, where it won six Tony Awards including Best Musical, as well as the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album.
Dear Evan Hansen was playing at the Noel Coward Theatre in London's West End, until it was forced to close in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is currently slated to return in 2021.
