Dear Evan Hansen made its world premiere at the Arena Stage in Washington, D.C. in July 2015, before moving Off-Broadway in 2016. The show tells the story of a Evan Hansen, a teenager with social anxiety, and is based on a real-life incident that happened when Benj Pasek – wrote the music and lyrics for the show – attended the Central Friends School. Justin Paul co-wrote the music and lyrics, and the show book was written by Steven Levenson.
In 2017, the show was nominated for nine Tony Awards and won six, including Best Musical. It went on to win a Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album in 2018.
A 2019 New York Times review called the show, “more and more ingenious with each viewing. … Dear Evan Hansen keeps revealing new charms and new truths. It is more hopeful than ever.”
And last year, following a cast change, the Hollywood Reporter referred to the show as “a wholly original, baked-from-scratch piece with an unfamiliar score by emerging songwriters and a book that actually told an all-new story. It was the opposite of the risk-minimizing formulas that have always been around in some shape or another on Broadway. … Nearly three years later, the songs of Dear Evan Hansen – written by Tony winner Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who also bagged a songwriting Oscar for La La Land – are now chart staples in their own right.”
