Dear Evan Hansen makes Liverpool date on first UK tour
Award-winning West End and Broadway smash hit musical Dear Evan Hansen is coming to Liverpool as part of an inaugural UK tour.
The show, directed by LIPA graduate Adam Penford, comes to the Liverpool Empire from November 12-24 next year.
Tickets are on sale to ATG+ members now, and go on general sale this Friday at 10am.
Meet Evan: an anxious high school kid who wants nothing more than to fit in. The thing is, on his way to fitting in, he didn’t tell the whole truth. And now must give up on a life he never dreamt he’d have.
As events spiral and the truth comes out, Evan faces a reckoning with himself and everyone around him.
Dear Evan Hansen features a book by Steve Levenson and music and lyrics by Greatest Showman Oscar winners Benji Pasek and Justin Paul, and this new production is presented by ATG Productions and Nottingham Playhouse.
Penford, who is artistic director of Nottingham Playhouse, says: “Dear Evan Hansen has thrilled audiences on both sides of the Atlantic since it first premiered in 2015. Evan's powerful story grips and moves people, told through a captivating script and musical score.
“This first, major, new and exciting UK production offers the opportunity to re=examine some of its contemporary themes and present this brand-new version around the UK. I'm excited to begin the search for our Evan very soon.”
Dear Evan Hansen comes to the Liverpool Empire from November 12-26, 2024. Tickets HERE
