Dear Evan Hansen
It doesn't get fresher and more relevant than this! Dear Evan Hansen won the 2017 Tony Award® for Best Musical along with its radiant stars Ben Platt and Rachel Bay Jones. This show is about finding the humanity inside of all of us as we live in an increasingly online world. The music is incredible and the performances are even better. There is a song in Act 2 that involves the entire audience weeping in unison. Bring a literal box of tissues!

Tickets for the Broadway production are very difficult to come by. They are now on sale through September 2018, though, so shoot for far-off dates and...Godspeed!
Note(s): Ben Platt plays the role of Evan through November 19. Then, The Real O'Neal's Noah Galvin will play the role from November 21 - mid January. After that, Broadway favorite (and cutie times a billion) Taylor Trensch from Hello, Dolly! takes over. A national tour (with casting yet to be announced) will launch in October 2018 at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, then going on to play more than 50 cities over a two-year period, including Buffalo, NY's Shea’s Performing Arts Center, Blumenthal Performing Arts in Charlotte, NC, Broadway In Chicago, Los Angeles, CA's Center Theatre Group, and more. Stay tuned for more information.
