Winner of six 2017 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and the 2018 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album, Dear Evan Hansen makes its Nashville debut with a one-week engagement Sept.10-15 at Tennessee Performing Arts Center’s Jackson Hall.
The popular musical opened on Broadway in 2016, it’s a story of a teenager named Evan Hansen who suffers from social anxiety but is desperate to find connections and fit in a place where he feels invisible. In a strange twist, Hansen finds himself the center of tragedy and turmoil. In the end, he’s faced with telling the truth and possibly losing his newfound popularity or continue to live the lie.
