It's looking like today’s going to be a good day, as producers of the smash hit West End musical Dear Evan Hansen have announced an extended booking period at the Noël Coward Theatre until at least October 22nd. Tickets to Dear Evan Hansen are currently on sale.
The plot of the popular musical follows the fortunes of awkward high school teenager Evan Hansen, who suddenly finds himself in the “in-crowd”. In 2020 Dear Evan Hansen scooped three Olivier Awards, including 'Best New Musical', and a movie based on the show was also released last year.
The West End production sees Sam Tutty take the role of Evan Hansen, that earned him an Olivier Award for 'Best Actor in a Musical'. Other notable members of the Dear Evan Hansen cast include Iona Fraser as Alana Beck, Doug Colling as Connor Murphy, Rebecca McKinnis as Heidi Hansen, Lucy Anderson as Zoe Murphy, Jack Loxton as Jared Kleinman, Lauren Ward as Cynthia Murphy, and Rupert Young as Larry Murphy. Marcus Harman will play the role of Evan Hansen for certain performances.
The remainder of the cast is completed by Mitchell Zhangazha, Hannah Lindsey, Tricia Adele-Turner, Mark Peachey, Haydn Cox, Ellis Kirk, Samantha Mbolekwa, Hannah Qureshi, and James Winter.
Dear Evan Hansen is directed by Michael Greif and features a book by Steven Levenson, a musical score by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. The choreography for the show is by Danny Mefford, lighting design by Japhy Weideman, scenic design by David Korins, costume design by Emily Rebholz, and sound design by Nevin Steinberg.
Performances of Dear Evan Hansen will continue at the Noël Coward Theatre until at least October 22nd 2022.
