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, the 6x Tony Award-winning Dear Evan Hansen is an American musical about life and the way we live it. The New York Times called it "a gorgeous new musical for anyone with a beating heart." Atlantic Records' Original Broadway Cast Recording companion to the acclaimed musical already made Billboard chart history when it debuted at No. 8, the highest charting debut position for an original cast album since 1961. It features music and lyrics by the Academy Award and Tony Award-winning team of Benji Pasek and Justin Paul (A Christmas Story: The Musical, La La Land) with a book by Tony Award-winner Steven Levenson.
