Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen is to play in London at the Noel Coward Theatre.

It will open in the autumn next year, with dates to be confirmed.

The show has music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, and is directed by Michael Greif.

Producer Stacey Mindich said: “Producing Dear Evan Hansen in America has been a joyful undertaking as the team and I have seen such a widespread and heartfelt response to our show’s message.  We are so excited to bring our show to London, especially to Cameron Mackintosh’s jewel box of a theatre, the Noel Coward. Our show is very much about connection and we are all looking forward to connecting London audiences to the music and story of Dear Evan Hansen.”

The London run will reunite the US creative team. It has a set by David Korins, costume by Emily Rebholz, lighting by Japhy Weideman, sound by Nevin Steinberg and hair design by David Brian Brown. Projections are by Peter Nigrini.

The show won six Tony awards in 2017, including best musical. It opened on Broadway at the Music Box Theatre in December 2016.
