Dear Evan Hansen, the Tony and Grammy Award-winning musical is to open at the Noel Coward Theatre London in Autumn 2019.
Producer Stacey Mindich has announced that Dear Evan Hansen will open at the Noel Coward Theatre in Autumn 2019. The original Broadway creative team will reunite to stage this new production.
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. Both deeply personal and profoundly contemporary, Dear Evan Hansen is a new musical about life and the way we live it.

Stacey Mindich said “Producing Dear Evan Hansen in America has been a joyful undertaking as the team and I have seen such a widespread and heartfelt response to our show’s message. We are so excited to bring our show to London, especially to Cameron Mackintosh’s jewel box of a theatre, the Noël Coward. Our show is very much about connection and we are all looking forward to connecting London audiences to the music and story.”
