On February 3 at 12am EST (tonight at midnight), as soon as the digital cast album drops for Broadway's Dear Evan Hansen, the production will host a Facebook Listening Party. Fans will be invited to join in on the Dear Evan Hansen Facebook page, where the community will gather to listen together.

During the event, the page will livestream a video with exclusive visual song commentary from songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul as well as orchestrator and musical supervisor Alex Lacamoire. Watch the livestream here.

With a score by Oscar nominees Pasek and Paul (La La Land), and a book by Levenson (Masters of Sex), Dear Evan Hansen is described as follows: "All his life Evan Hansen has felt invisible. To his peers, to the girl he loves, sometimes even to his own mother. But that was before he wrote the letter — that led to the incident— that started the lie — that ignited a movement – that inspired a community — and changed Evan's status from the ultimate outsider into the somebody everyone wants to know. But how long can Evan keep his secret? And at what price?"

Ben Platt stars alongside Laura Dreyfuss, Mike Faist, Rachel Bay Jones, Will Roland, Jennifer Laura Thompson, Kristolyn Lloyd, and Michael Park. Three-time Tony Award nominee Michael Greif directs, with choreography by Danny Mefford, at the Music Box Theatre.
