Dear Evan Hansen Toronto Tickets
Dear Evan Hansen TicketsDear Evan Hansen premiered in Washington, DC, at the Arena Stage. Shortly after, it began an Off-Broadway run before moving to Broadway in late 2016. The Toronto tour played at the Royal Alexandra Theatre. The show opened in March 2019 and ran through July 21, 2019. The award-winning musical continues its Broadway run at the Music Box Theatre in New York and US tour. Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, professionally known as Pasek and Paul, created the pay with author Steven Levenson. Pasek and Paul wrote the lyrics and musical score, and Levenson wrote the Tony Award-winning book. They connected with four-time Tony Award nominee Michael Greif, who directed. Dear Evan Hansen tackles themes of loneliness and mental illness. The musical examines misunderstandings and how connections develop following the suicide of Evan's classmate Connor Murphy.
Dear Evan Hansen Inspired by True EventsDear Evan Hansen's inspiration comes from a real-life tragedy. In high school, Pasek's classmate died of a drug overdose. Despite that classmate being considered a loner, Pasek observed that in the wake of tragedy, his classmates claimed they knew the deceased. That has parallels to how the main character of Evan pretends to know Connor after his parents find the misinterpreted suicide note. Additionally, the play uses social media and a viral video campaign to show the phenomena of using social media to grieve.
