dear evan hansen Tony Award-winning musical, Dear Evan Hansen, will make its West End debut at the Noel Coward Theatre in November 2019. Broadway producer Stacey Mindich had already announced that the lead for the London transfer will be a British actor. Casting is set to begin in early 2019.

Dear Evan Hansen is about a fictional 17-year-old high school senior who lives in an unnamed American town with his divorced mother. He has a social anxiety disorder that is exacerbated when he is caught up in another family’s tragedy after their teenage son commits suicide. In America the musical has provided a platform for discussion about youth suicide and premature storytelling by people with mental illness.

Dear Evan Hansen has taken Broadway by storm since opening at the Music Box Theatre in 2016, picking up six Tony Awards including Best Original Score for song-writing duo Pasek and Paul, Best Book of a Musical for Steven Levenson, and Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical for Ben Platt.

The show has a score by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who also wrote the lyrics for the film La La Land and the Hugh Jackman movie The Greatest Showman, plus a musical adaptation of James and the Giant Peach and the Tony-nominated A Christmas Story: The Musical.

Official dates and ticketing information will be released in November.
