Dear Evan Hansen
Opening October 30 (Booking until April 2020)
Noel Coward Theatre (Leicester Square)
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.
Dear Evan Hansen has struck a remarkable chord with audiences and critics everywhere. The New York Times calls it “a gut-punching, breathtaking knockout of a musical.” And NBC Nightly News calls this bold new musical “an anthem resonating on Broadway and beyond.”

October 14-November 9
The Old Vic (Waterloo)
“I could fly to New York and back every day for seven years and still not leave a carbon footprint as big as if I have a child. Ten thousand tonnes of CO2. That’s the weight of the Eiffel Tower. I’d be giving birth to the Eiffel Tower.”
The ice caps are melting, there’s overpopulation, political unrest; everything’s going to hell in a handcart – why on earth would someone bring a baby into this world?
Directed by Matthew Warchus, Claire Foy and Matt Smith perform in Duncan Macmillan’s hilarious emotional rollercoaster of a play about a couple wrestling with life’s biggest dilemmas.
