You Will Be Found!

After much speculation and rumour, Dear Evan Hansen, Broadway's latest smash hit musical, is heading to London's West End in 2019! Telling the story of troubled teen Evan, the six-time Tony-winning and Grammy-winning musical dives into the themes of misunderstood youth and the ever-growing impact of technology on our lives.

After its world premiere in Washington back in 2015, this tear-jerking tuner opened to much critical acclaim at Broadway's Music Box Theater in 2016. Combatting the likes of Hamilton, Dear Evan Hansen, rose to the top of the Broadway leaderboard where it still proudly sits almost two years on. With a perfectly pitched pop score, which includes hits such as For Forever and Words Fail, by La La Land writers Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, Dear Evan Hansen won six 2017 Tony awards, including Best Musical, and a Grammy award in 2018 for Best Musical Theater Album.

What is Dear Evan Hansen about?

Dear Evan Hansen is a cautionary tale about how a lie can spread across a community before the truth even has its running shoes on. The Evan of the story is an anxiety-ridden high school misfit who is desperate for any form of recognition from his peers. So much so, that when his classmate commits suicide after suffering depression, a mysterious suicide note appears in the weeks after, seemingly addressed to Evan.

Now infamous by association with the dead teen, Evan finally gains the spotlight that he craves. However, with a traumatized local community, not to mention his family, starts begging Evan for more clues about Connor's state of mind, Evan's world starts to unravel with frightening speed. With Connor's parents and sister Zoe (who just happens to be Evan's crush) finding solace in the note, it isn't long before the powers of social media start to question its validity, and Evan's own motives.

What we thought

EMOTIONAL Remarkable inspiring

Get dressed, pack your tissues, and go see this show!

Dear Evan Hansen beautifully explores the search for love, dealing with grief, loneliness, and self-exploration while being surrounded by digital noise. We may have mastered worldwide connectivity but have we begun to conquer the power of commun
