One of the most popular shows on Broadway, DEAR EVAN HANSEN, the national tour is coming to Southern California, January 1st through 13th, 2018, at Segerstrom Center for the Arts.
A letter that was never meant to be seen, a lie that was never meant to be told, a life he never dreamed he could have. Evan Hansen is about to get the one thing he’s always wanted: a chance to finally fit in. DEAR EVAN HANSEN is the deeply personal and profoundly contemporary musical about life and the way we live it.
The winner of six 2017 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Dear Evan Hansen features a book by Tony Award-winner Steven Levenson, a score by Grammy®, Tony® and Academy Award® winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land, The Greatest Showman), and direction by four-time Tony Award nominee Michael Greif (Rent, Next to Normal).
Stage and TV star Jessica Phillips will play ‘Heidi Hansen’, Tony Award® nominee Christiane Noll will play ‘Cynthia Murphy’, and Broadway veteran Aaron Lazar will play ‘Larry Murphy.’ Marrick Smith and Maggie McKenna round out the Murphy family (as Connor and Zoe, respectively), with Jared Goldsmith as ‘Jared Kleinman’ and Phoebe Koyabe as ‘Alana Beck’ completing the on-stage company. They join Ben Levi Ross in the title role.
