Dear Evan Hansen London extends through until April 2020
Dear Evan Hansen London has released more tickets for its upcoming production.
With a score written by Dogfight and The Greatest Showman songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul and a book by Steven Levenson, Dear Evan Hansen has proved a huge hit on Broadway.
Now Dear Evan Hansen is on its way to London’s West End in 2019.
A synopsis of the show reads:
Dear Evan Hansen tells the story of socially awkward teenager Evan. In his last year of high school and with only one person he considers a friend, an assignment from his therapist leads to a misunderstanding that casts him in the centre of a tragedy.
Evan’s life begins to look the way he always hoped it would, he’s finally found a way to fit in but can he maintain it?
Currently Dear Evan Hansen is scheduled to begin previews on the West End from 29 October 2019 with official opening night slated for 19 November 2019.
Following a pre-sale, tickets are now on general sale from £30 with the show now booking through until April 2020 at the Noel Coward Theatre.
Performances will be 7:30PM Monday-Saturday with 2:30PM matinees on Wednesday and Saturdays.
There is currently a strictly-enforced limit of 6 tickets per person, per booking period.
As yet the original London casting for Dear Evan Hansen in the West End has not been confirmed.
Open call auditions for all parts were held in February.
In April, Songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul said at the 2019 Olivier Awards that they were currently in the process of choosing who would play the title role of Evan.
Meanwhile, the creative team from Broadway will oversee the transfer: Director Michael Greif, costume design by Emily Rebholz; musical supervision by Alex Lacamoire; sound design by Nevin Steinberg; choreography by Danny Mefford; scenic design by David Korins; projection design by Peter Nigrini and lighting design by Japhy Weideman.
