DEAR EVAN HANSEN to Release Special Edition Vinyl, Coffee Table Book This Month
Dear Evan Hansen producer Stacey Mindich, in conjunction with Atlantic Records, Grand Central Publishing and Melcher Media, has announced that a limited-edition 12" vinyl picture disc (and accompanying digital track) and an all-access behind-the-scenes look at the Tony Award Winning Musical, Dear Evan Hansen: through the window, will be released this month.
Available beginning November 17, the two-sided vinyl 12" will include one of the show's most popular songs, "Waving Through a Window," paired with a previously unreleased, never-before-heard track "In the Bedroom Down the Hall" by Academy Award and Tony Award-winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul and performed by Tony Award-winner Rachel Bay Jones and Tony Award nominee Jennifer Laura Thompson. "In the Bedroom Down the Hall" will also be released digitally and will be available for streaming and download at all DSPs.
A special edition coffee table book from Pasek, Paul, and Steven Levenson, Dear Evan Hansen: through the window will be released by Grand Central Publishing on Tuesday, November 21. The book, which is now available for pre-order, offers an in-depth, all-access look at the musical, including never-before-seen production photos and cast portraits, behind-the-scenes stories, and a fully annotated script by the authors.
The winner of six 2017 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Dear Evan Hansen features a book by Tony Award-winner Steven Levenson, a score by Academy Award and Tony winning composers Benj Pasek & Justin Paul, and direction by 4-time Tony Award nominee Michael Greif. The Original Broadway Cast Recording of Dear Evan Hansen, produced by Atlantic Records, was released in February 2017, making an extraordinary debut on the Billboard 200 and entering the chart at #8 - the highest charting debut position for an original cast album since 1961.
Dear Evan Hansen opened at the Music Box Theatre to rave reviews on December 4, 2016, where it's broken all box office records and has struck a chord with critics and audiences alike.
In addition to winning six Tony awards, Dear Evan Hansen has won numerous other awards, including the 2017 Drama League Award for Outstanding Musical Production and for the off-Broadway production, two Obie Awards, a Drama Desk Award, and two Outer Critics Circle Awards and two Helen Hayes Awards.
