Dear Evan Hansen will celebrate its first anniversary on Broadway with an additional performance on December 10—to which tickets will be free, and can be won by entering the digital lottery online here.
The additional performance has been titled “Fan Appreciation Day”—in recognition of the fans who have made the production the success that it is—by the show’s creators Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. Watch their YouTube message above.
The digital lottery closes November 5; winners will be notified between November 6 and 17.
As previously reported, Dear Evan Hansen will welcome Noah Galvin in the title role beginning November 21. Following Galvin's run, Hello, Dolly! star Taylor Trensch will take over beginning mid-January 2018.
After a successful regional premiere and hit Off-Broadway run, Dear Evan Hansen began previews on Broadway November 14, 2016, ahead of a December 4 opening night.
The original musical features a score by the Tony- and Oscar-winning songwriting team of Pasek and Paul (Dogfight, A Christmas Story), a book by Tony winner Steven Levenson (Masters of Sex), choreography by Danny Mefford (Fun Home), and direction by multiple Tony nominee Greif (Rent, Next to Normal, If/Then).
The December 10 performance of Dear Evan Hansen is being presented in partnership with Atlantic Records, which produced the show’s cast album.
