Tony-Winning Dear Evan Hansen to Be Released on Vinyl
The new musical also took home 2017 Tonys for Best Actor, Best Original Score, and more.
Atlantic Records has announced the release of Dear Evan Hansen on vinyl on July 21. The currently running Broadway show recently boasted six wins at the 2017 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Orchestrations.
With a score by Oscar winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land), and a book by Steven 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?"
The production opened at Broadway's Music Box Theatre on December 4. The cast is led by Ben Platt, who won a Tony for his performance, alongside Laura Dreyfuss; Mike Faist; Rachel Bay Jones, who received a 2017 Tony for Best Supporting Actress; Will Roland; Jennifer Laura Thompson; Kristolyn Lloyd; and Michael Park. Michael Greif directs.
