Dear Evan Hansen

“The musical of its generation, for all generations”
BBC Radio 2

“Theatrical magic. One of the most remarkable shows in musical theatre history.”
Washington Post

“A true original. Theatrical lightning.”
International New York Times

Today is going to be a good day. And here’s why…

Meet Evan: an anxious high school kid who wants nothing more than to fit in. The thing is, on his way to fitting in, he didn’t tell the whole truth. And now must give up on a life he never dreamt he’d have. As events spiral and the truth comes out, Evan faces a reckoning with himself and everyone around him.

Packed with some of the biggest musical theatre songs of the last decade, Dear Evan Hansen has a score by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (Oscar-winning composers for The Greatest Showman), book by Steven Levenson and more awards than can be listed here. Well ok, we’ll mention a few: its Tony® Award for Best Musical, Olivier Award for Best New Musical, Grammy® Award for Best Musical Theatre Score…no big deal but the list goes on!

With direction by Adam Penford (Artistic Director at Nottingham Playhouse), this brand-new production marks the first time that the Broadway and West End phenomenon will tour the UK & Ireland. So wherever you are, #YouWillBeFound, with the Dear Evan Hansen tour coming to the Cornwall Playhouse.

Age Guidance: 12+
Running Time: 2 hours 40 minutes including interval
