“Dear Evan Hansen” will reopen at the Music Box Theatre on Dec. 11.
In addition to the Broadway reopening, the London production will reopen at the Noël Coward Theatre on Oct. 26 and the North American tour will relaunch Dec. 7 in Greensboro, N.C. Casting for the musical’s Broadway return has not yet been confirmed.
Tickets for the Broadway and touring productions are on sale Thursday.
All three productions plan to hold a special night during the first weeks of reopening for mental health care workers and volunteers.
“It’s a remarkable feeling to put plans in place to relaunch all three ‘Dear Evan Hansen’ companies, though we, like everyone in the theater industry, are facing considerable challenges,” producer Stacey Mindich said in the press release. “We will proceed safely and smartly to ensure a safe and equitable workplace for everyone when we return, and protect our cast, crew and audiences amidst a world forever changed and continuously evolving due to both the global pandemic and the cultural and racial reckoning.”
“Dear Evan Hansen” opened on Broadway on Dec. 4, 2016. Before the Broadway shutdown, the cast was led by Jordan Fisher as Evan Hansen.
Safety protocols for the Music Box Theatre and all Broadway theaters remain to be seen. Like other productions, “Dear Evan Hansen” will allow ticket exchanges or refunds up until two hours before any performance through Jan. 17, 2022.
