With a Tony-winning score by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, and a Tony-winning book by Steven Levenson, Dear Evan Hansen is described as follows: "A letter that was never meant to be seen, a lie that was never meant to be told, a life he never dreamed he could have. Evan Hansen is about to get the one thing he's always wanted: a chance to finally fit in."

Michael Greif directs the production at the Music Box Theatre. In 2017, it earned a total of six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book.

Van Leeuwen has debuted a limited-edition flavor inspired by the show, A La Mode, through December 31 at its Rockefeller Center location. Ten percent of the proceeds will be donated to the Trevor Project, one of the musical's not-for-profit partners. The flavor is a vanilla ice cream with cinnamon apple pie pieces throughout.
