Item Description

Experience Broadway's biggest smash of the season! Enjoy two (2) tickets to Broadway's Dear Evan Hansen, the critically acclaimed new musical, plus a private backstage meet and greet with the sensational Ben Platt.  

About the show:

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. Both deeply personal and profoundly contemporary, Dear Evan Hansen is a new American musical about life and the way we live it. This new musical pairs three-time Tony Award-nominated director Michael Greif (Rent, Next to Normal, Grey Gardens) with the Tony-nominated composing team of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (A Christmas Story, Dogfight, NBC’s SMASH) and award-winning playwright Steven Levenson (Showtime’s Masters of Sex).

SYNOPSIS: All his life, Evan Hansen has felt invisible. But when a tragic event shocks the community and thrusts him into the center of a rapidly evolving controversy, Evan is given the opportunity of a lifetime: the chance to be somebody else.

About Ben Platt:

Ben Platt originated the role of Evan Hansen at Arena Stage in Washington, D.C. and last season for the production's Off-Broadway run at Second Stage.  For the latter he was the winner of the Obie Award for Best Leading Actor in a Musical, and he was also nominated for The Drama League Awards and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Distinguished Performance.  Platt was also the original Elder Cunningham in the Chicago production of The Book of Mormon, and reprised the role on Broadway. Onscreen, Platt is best known for his performances as Benji Applebaum in Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2.
