The Broadway musical will take its final bow at the Royal Alexandra Theatre on July 21.
Dear Evan Hansen, the Tony-winning musical currently playing at the Royal Alexandra Theatre, is set to close two months early this July. The Broadway import, which is playing its first regional run in Toronto, will now close on July 21 instead of the previously scheduled (after it extended its run) September 29.
The Toronto production currently stars Robert Markus as Evan Hansen, Jessica Sherman as Heidi, Sean Patrick Dolan as Connor and Stephanie La Rochelle as Zoe.
Opening on Broadway back in 2016, Dear Evan Hansen won six Tony Awards and received the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album in 2018.
What is Dear Evan Hansen about?
The Evan of the story is an anxiety-ridden high school misfit who is desperate for any form of recognition from his peers. So much so, that when his classmate commits suicide after suffering depression, a mysterious suicide note appears in the weeks after, seemingly addressed to Evan.
Now infamous by association with the dead teen, Evan finally gains the spotlight that he craves. However, with a traumatized local community, not to mention his family, starts begging Evan for more clues about Connor's state of mind, Evan's world starts to unravel with frightening speed. With Connor's parents and sister Zoe (who just happens to be Evan's crush) finding solace in the note, it isn't long before the powers of social media start to question its validity, and Evan's own motives.
Dear Evan Hansen is now playing at the Royal Alexandra Theatre through to July 21.
