Sparked by a real-life death at Pasek's high school more than a decade ago, Dear Evan Hansen follows one student's struggle for identity amidst the ensuing chaos. Following its acclaimed debut at Arena Stage in 2015, the Off-Broadway premiere quickly sold out its entire limited run earlier this year. It is due to officially open on Broadway December 4 at the Music Box Theatre.
The original musical features a score by the Tony and Emmy-nominated songwriting team of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (Dogfight, A Christmas Story), a book by Steven Levenson (Masters of Sex), choreography by Danny Mefford (Fun Home) and direction by three-time Tony nominee Michael Greif (Rent, Next to Normal, If/Then).
Tickets ($49-$149) can be ordered from Telecharge.com or by calling (212) 239-6200. The Music Box Theatre box office, located at 239 West 45th Street, New York, will open October 3. For more information visit DearEvanHansen.com.
