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.
Winner of 6 Tony Awards®, including Best Musical, Dear Evan Hansen has struck a remarkable chord with audiences and critics everywhere.
Theatre: Music Box Theatre

SMP’S Favorite Moment
The first visit to the beautiful Music Box Theatre, as the close-knit Dear Evan Hansen family was reunited once more, followed several weeks later by the sea of blue DEH hats that flooded 45th Street as our beloved audience members left the first preview performance. The exhilarating “Digital Listening Party” on the eve of the cast recording’s release – when more than a thousand fans gathered online to experience the album together for the first time, and continued the conversation into the wee hours of the morning. The induction of Evan’s signed cast and iconic blue striped polo into the Smithsonian on the occasion of the show’s second anniversary on Broadway.
