Producer Stacey Mindich has announced the full cast today for the London premiere of musical Dear Evan Hansen, which will start performances at the Noël Coward Theatre on 29 October 2019.

The cast includes four West End debuts including the titular role. The new run will feature Sam Tutty as Evan Hansen, Lucy Anderson as Zoe Murphy, Doug Colling as Connor Murphy and Marcus Harman as Evan Hansen at certain performances.

Joining them will be Rebecca McKinnis as Heidi Hansen, Lauren Ward as Cynthia Murphy, Rupert Young as Larry Murphy, Jack Loxton as Jared Kleinman, Nicole Raquel Dennis as Alana Beck.

Ensemble cast will also include Tricia Adele-Turner, David Breeds, Haydn Cox, Natalie Kassanga, Hannah Lindsey, Mark Peachey, Courtney Stapleton, Alex Thomas-Smith and James Winter.

Producer Stacey Mindich said of the production:

“It’s been a dream of ours to bring Dear Evan Hansen across the pond, and I’m just thrilled that we’ve found the perfect cast to fulfill this dream and introduce this original musical – and it’s very real and very universal themes – to London.

“In fact, the entire casting process was a joy for the creative team and me, as we met so many amazingly talented actors who were already familiar with the show and its score.”

Dear Evan Hansen has won 6 Tony Awards as well as the 2018 Grammy for Best Musical Theatre Album. The composers are Tony, Grammy and Academy Award-winning Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (The Greatest Showman, La La Land). It’s also directed by Tony nominee Michael Greif and features a book by Tony award-winner Steven Levenson.

The musical follows the attempts of an awkward teenager to fit in and make friends in his senior year at high school. He fakes a series of emails from a dead classmate to try and get closer to people, but things begin to unravel and he risks losing everything.

A sad tale of the pains and difficulties of fitting in and finding out who you are, the story follows a host of teenage characters in their attempts to deal with the death of a classmate.

Dear Evan Hansen will open at the Noël Coward Theatre on November 19.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.
