Dear Evan Hansen US National Tour
Theatre fans not live by Hamilton alone. No matter how older musicals are great, we need new stories and new heroes. And they’re just growing almost out of nowhere: in 2017, we got Dear Evan Hansen.
The show was recognized by Tony Awards as the Best Musical of the year. Now in 2018, the cast of this masterpiece is going on a national tour with over 50 stops in different cities across America including Los Angeles, New York, Buffalo, Chicago, Charlotte, and many others.
The national tour will last two years and sets off at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts’ Buell Theatre in October 2018. This is the venue where Frozen held its pre-Broadway premiere. The exact dates are still unknown but will be announced closer to the tour’s beginning.
Apart from Best Musical Award, Dear Evan Hansen also earned a few awards for its cast. The male lead Ben Platt won Best Actor Award as well as his female counterpart Rachel Bay Jones got Best Actress Award. The creators of the show weren’t left behind, too: Tony Awards were given to musical’s orchestrator Alex Lacamoire, composers Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, and to book writer Steven Levenson.
However, Platt is not the only one who will play a leading male role in the musical. After his final bow, he will pass the baton to Boah Galvin who, in his turn, will hand it over to Tayler Trehsch.
