BroadwayCon 2018 Adds Dear Evan Hansen Panel
Book writer Steven Levenson and the show's newest star Noah Galvin will discuss the Tony-winning musical.
The Tony Award-winning musical Dear Evan Hansen will return to BroadwayCon in 2018, featuring the show's Tony-winning book writer Steven Levenson and current star Noah Galvin in conversation. The Dear Evan Hansen panel will take BroadwayCon attendees behind the scenes of the hit show.
The winner of six 2017 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Dear Evan Hansen features a book by Levenson, a score by Academy Award and Tony-winning composers Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, and direction by four-time Tony Award nominee Michael Greif. The original Broadway cast recording, produced by Atlantic Records, was released in February 2017 and debuted on the Billboard 200 chart at No. 8 — the highest charting debut position for an original cast album since 1961. A special edition coffee table book from Pasek, Paul, and Levenson, Dear Evan Hansen: Through the Window, is now available. The book offers an in-depth, all-access look at the musical, including never-before-seen production photos and cast portraits, behind-the-scenes stories, and a fully annotated script by the authors.
