Dear Evan Hansen18 W Monroe St
Chicago, IL 60603
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.
DEAR EVAN HANSEN has struck a chord with audiences and critics everywhere, including The Washington Post who says DEAR EVAN HANSEN is “one of the most remarkable shows in musical theatre history.” The New York Times calls it “a gut-punching, breathtaking knockout of a musical.” And NBC Nightly News declares the musical “an anthem resonating on Broadway and beyond.”

The American cult classic of the last half-decade, Joe Iconis and Joe Tracz's coming of age tuner follows Jeremy as his quest for cool lands him in a whole heap of trouble. Nominated for a 2019 Tony Award for Best Original Score!
Garnering a Tony nomination for its pop fulled score, which includes tunes like "More Than Survive" and "Two-Player Game", Be More Chill had been bubbling under the surface of the theatre scene since its premiere production in New Jersey back in 2015. Although Broadway's big wigs had seemingly forgotten about the teen musical, America's musical theatre fans didn't, resulting in over one hundred million album streams of the original cast recording! Now with Broadway finally taking notice of the show's fun and poignant storyline, it's time for Chicago to get a slice of the action...
