Knowing an actor's favorite band is one thing — but learning a character's taste in music is a new level of fandom that Broadway's Dear Evan Hansen will be offering its devoted disciples over the coming weeks.

To celebrate its recent Grammy nomination for Best Musical Theater Album (alongside Come From Away and Hello, Dolly!), the show has begun rolling out Spotify playlists, specially crafted by the musical's Tony-winning characters. So if you always suspected that Zoe Murphy (played by Laura Dreyfuss) was secretly a Paul Simon fan or that Alana Beck (played by Kristolyn Lloyd) gets her motivation from Beyoncé's "Run the World (Girls)" — you would be correct.

With a Tony-winning score by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, and a Tony-winning book by Steven Levenson, Dear Evan Hansen currently stars Noah Galvin in the title role, alongside original cast members Laura Dreyfuss, Rachel Bay Jones, Jennifer Laura Thompson, Mike Faist, Michael Park, Will Roland, and Kristolyn Lloyd. Taylor Trensch takes over as Broadway's Evan Hansen on February 6, 2018.

The 60th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony will be held on January 28, 2018, and will be broadcast on CBS live from the Madison Square Garden.
