Dear Evan Hansen Tour Announces $25 Digital Lottery for Every Performance
The tour stars Ben Levi Ross as Evan Hansen.
Dear Evan Hansen launches its first North American tour tonight at the Buell Theatre in Denver, where performances will run through October 13. In conjunction with the first performance, producer Stacey Mindich has announced that the show will host a digital ticket lottery in each city on the tour.
The lottery will offer fans the chance to purchase a limited number of $25 tickets available at each performance. Entries will begin being accepted 48 hours before the first performance in each tour city and will be accepted until 9am local time the day before the performance. Fans who have been selected will be notified daily via email and can then purchase up to two tickets at $25 each. The ticket lottery will continue on a rolling basis for every performance in the engagement.
Leading the tour is Ben Levi Ross as Evan Hansen and Jessica Phillips as Heidi Hansen. They are joined by Tony Award nominee Christiane Noll as Cynthia Murphy, Aaron Lazar as Larry Murphy, Marrick Smith as Connor Murphy, Maggie McKenna as Zoe Murphy, Jared Goldsmith as Jared Kleinman, and Phoebe Koyabe as Alana Beck. Stephen Christopher Anthony will be the Evan alternate, and Noah Kieserman, Ciara Alyse Harris, John Hemphill, Jane Pfitsch, Coleen Sexton, and Maria Wirries will be the understudies.
The tour will play more than 50 cities over a two-year period, including Los Angeles (Ahmanson Theatre), San Francisco (the Curran), Las Vegas (the Smith Center), Chicago (Oriental Theatre), Atlanta (the Fox Theatre), Boston (the Boston Opera House), and more. In addition, Dear Evan Hansen will launch its first international production in Canada in March 2019 at Toronto's Royal Alexandra Theatre.
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."
