Presale now open for Dear Evan Hansen

The award-wining musical arrives in London this autumn – presale now open

The Tony Award-winning musical DEAR EVAN HANSEN will open at the Noël Coward Theatre this autumn, reuniting the original creative team behind the Broadway smash hit.

Fans can secure tickets early in our presale, which is now open before tickets go on general sale from Monday 8 April 2019.

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 musical about life and the way we live it.

Directed by Michael Greif and winner of six Tony awards including Best Musical, as well as the 2018 Grammy award for Best Musical Theatre Album, DEAR EVAN HANSEN features book by Tony award-winner Steven Levenson and a score by Tony, Grammy and Academy Award-winning composers Benj Pasek & Justin Paul – the score includes the tracks Waving Through a Window, For Forever, You Will Be Found and Words Fail.

The West End production will also reunite the creatives behind the Broadway original and will feature scenic design by David Korins, projection design by Peter Nigrini, costume design by Emily Rebholz, lighting design by Japhy Weideman, sound design by Nevin Steinberg and hair design by David Brian Brown.

Music supervision, orchestrations and additional arrangements are by Alex Lacamoire, Ben Cohn is the Associate Music Supervisor, Vocal arrangements and additional arrangements are by Justin Paul and choreography is by Danny Mefford.

The Broadway production of DEAR EVAN HANSEN opened at the Music Box Theatre on 4 December 2016, where it has broken all box office records. A US national tour launched in October 2018, and a production recently opened at Toronto’s Royal Alexandra Theatre.

Producer Stacey Mindich said: “Producing DEAR EVAN HANSEN in America has been a joyful undertaking as the team and I have seen such a widespread and heartfelt response to our show’s message.  We are so excited to bring our show to London, especially to Cameron Mackintosh’s jewel box of a theatre, the Noël Coward. Our show is very much about connection and we are all looking forward to connecting London audiences to the music and story of DEAR EVAN HANSEN.”
