The Noel Coward Theatre will once again play host to six-time Tony Award®-winning musical, DEAR EVAN HANSEN, a remarkable new musical about life and the way we live it that has struck a chord with both audiences and critics alike since its transfer to the West End in November 2019.
There is a letter that was never meant to be opened, a lie that should never have been told, a life he could never have dreamed that he could have. Could it be that Evan Hansen is just about to get the one thing he has always dreamed of: a chance to fit in.
The Tony, Oscar and Golden Globe-winning songwriting team of Justin Paul and Benj Pasek present DEAR EVAN HANSEN, directed by four-time Tony Award®-nominee Michael Greif and featuring a book by Tony Award®-winner Steven Levenson.

Is Dear Evan Hansen Suitable For Kids?
The recommended age to see Dear Evan Hansen is 12 years. There are quite intense adult themes throughout the show as it touches on serious issues such as depression, anxiety, grief and suicide. It also contains some mature sexual language and gestures and even though it ends with a message of hope it is predominately an adult show and probably not suitable for young or sensitive children.
What Is The Running Time For Dear Evan Hansen?
The show lasts for 2 hours and 30 minutes which includes an interval.
Who Wrote The Musical Dear Evan Hansen?
The musical Dear Evan Hansen features a book from Steven Levenson and music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul and is based on a true life incident that happened during Pasek's time at high school.
Has Dear Evan Hansen Won Any Awards?
The original Broadway production of Dear Evan Hansen in 2017 was nominated for 9 Tony Awards, winning 6 including 'Best Musical', 'Best Original Score' and 'Best Performance By A Leading Actor In A Musical'.

Although tickets to Dear Evan Hansen can start from as little as £30 it is worth noting that the Noel Coward Theatre has four tiers and there are quite a few seats in the cheaper sections of the upper circle and balcony that feature a restriction to your view so it is highly recommended that you study the seating plan prior to purchase to ensure that you are happy with your seats before submitting payment.
The short answer to this is a resounding NO as this is a hugely popular show and sheer public demand dictates that it is doubtful that there will be any official discount Dear Evan Hansen tickets on sale any time soon. Bargain hunters looking to keep the price down could do worse than looking at advance booking either clear view seats in the upper circle or slightly to the back and on the sides of the stalls or dress circle during off peak periods and for midweek performances.
The Noel Coward Theatre has quite a few seats that do have bad restrictions so when buying tickets to Dear Evan Hansen it is recommended that you study the seating plan before booking to make sure that you are happy with your purchase. The seats in row AA of the upper circle for example, and quite a few of the seats in the balcony feature quite severe restrictions and should possibly be avoided if possible.
The best value when booking tickets for Dear Evan Hansen as with most West End shows can be found in midweek performances in the quieter months of November, January and February when London traditionally has a lower footfall and producers are sometimes forced to reduce ticket prices to fill up the theatre as eight shows every single week is a demanding schedule and a lot of seats that need to be filled. The weeks following on from school holidays are very often quiet in the theatre and can regularly see a downwards movement in ticket prices bringing big savings.
