Dear Evan Hansen - 2015 - Washington, DC (Regional) Tickets, News, Info & More


A letter, a lie, a life he never dreamed he could have.

Evan Hansen (Pitch Perfect's Ben Platt) is about to get everything he's ever wanted: the girl of his dreams, the perfect family he's always longed for and a chance to finally fit in. He just has to hope that his chance to connect isn’t blown by the secrets he has to conceal.

Featuring a score by Tony Award nominees Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (A Christmas Story, Dogfight), a book by Steven Levenson (Masters of Sex) and directed by three-time Tony nominee Michael Greif (Rent, Next to Normal), Dear Evan Hansen is a moving and original musical about more than how we share, like or friend; it’s about how we love, feel and survive in the modern world.


Running Time:

Two hours and 30 minutes, with one intermission
