Dear Evan Hansen: The Novel, based on the Tony-winning Best Musical, hits bookshelves October 9 and the creators of the show—Benj Pasek, Justin Paul, and Steven Levenson—as well as co-author Val Emmich will embark on a ten-city book tour October 8–16. The quartet will present the new book and perform select songs at each destination.
The stage to page adaptation still follows Evan Hansen, the anxiety-ridden teen, as he is welcomed into the Murphy home after he lies and claims he was their son Connor’s secret best friend. As the lie snowballs, Dear Evan Hansen grapples with questions of morality, authenticity, coming-of-age, and “the struggle to belong in an age of instant connectivity and profound isolation.”
The tour launches October 8 in New York City and will visit Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Cincinnati, Ann Arbor, Chicago, Denver, Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. For full schedule details and to purchase tickets to any of the events, click here.
