With a Tony-winning score by Pasek and Paul, and a Tony-winning book by 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."
The "Imagine" singer also revealed that he "100 per cent" plans to return to Broadway soon: "My current dream is to do something that isn't a musical...the idea is a straight piece of theatre without having to worry about my voice. I'd love to do a classic, maybe Amadeus, or Shakespeare."
Dear Evan Hansen will be released in UK cinemas on 11 October, two weeks after its US premiere.
