Dear Evan Hansen is a musical that follows Evan Hansen, a high school senior with severe social anxiety. Following the death of one of his classmates, Connor, Evan comes up with a lie to make it seem like he was Conner’s best friend. This brings Evan close to Connor’s family and gives him a feeling of purpose in life.
The show has received critical acclaim for shedding light on mental illness and youth suicide, along with its music and Ben Platt’s performance as Evan Hansen. The soundtrack, with music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, won a Grammy award for Best Musical Theater Album in 2018. At the 2017 Tony Awards, Dear Evan Hansen won 6 of its 9 nominations, including Best Musical, Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical (Ben Platt), and Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Musical (Rachel Bay Jones). See Dear Evan Hansen at the Music Box Theater on Broadway or on tour in one of more than 50 cities beginning this October.
