Time Out says
This hit Broadway tearjerker makes makes its way to the West End
It feels like 2019 is the year every single hit Broadway musical of the last three years descends upon London. Following hot on the heels of ‘Waitress’, ‘9 to 5’ and ‘Come from Away’, here’s tearjerking Tony-winner ‘Dear Evan Hansen’. Written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, with a book by Steven Levenson, the musical concerns the eponymous troubled teen, who writes himself a series of letters to help him cope with a profoundly difficult time in his life, following the tragic death of a school friend.
It will premiere in London with a British cast of mostly unknowns, with Sam Tutty – who recently made his professional stage debut in ‘Once on This Island’ at Southwark Playhouse – starring as Evan.
