Read Dear Evan Hansen: Through the Window Online Free - Winner of 6 Tony Awards!
The official behind-the-scenes book of the new hit musical.
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.
The book-produced by Melcher Media, the team behind Hamilton, Wicked, Rent, and many more-tells the story of the musical from its conception nearly a decade ago to the Broadway stage. From developing the idea to writing the show, composing, casting, and rehearsals, DEAR EVAN HANSEN appeals to fans far and wide offering them the opportunity to continuously revisit the show, and for those who haven't seen the musical, reading the book will make them feel like they have.
Filled with interviews with the cast and crew, original behind-the-scenes photography, a deeper look into Evan's fictional world and the visual world of the show, unreleased lyrics, and of course the libretto, as well as reflections on the creators own formative memories from their adolescence as it relates to the show's themes, and important examinations of how we present ourselves online and mental health, DEAR EVAN HANSEN is a beautifully produced, thoughtful, and uplifting book.

I haven't seen this show yet, but I'm dying to because the music has meant so much to me. The first time I heard “Waving Through A Window,” it felt like someone had taken a letter opener to my forearm or my sternum because it so eloquently described what it feels like to be a teenager with crippl...

Nowhere near the Hamiltome in size, scope, or amount of trivia, but it's full of pretty pictures and I love this play so much.

It’s always insane to me how this show has the capability to get me through something. Dear Evan Hansen has earned the top spot in my list of musicals and I have a firm suspicion it will remain there for the majority of my existence. The story hits home for a multitude of reasons and this book ha...

This book was, of course, amazing, but the thing that I really connected with was the story of how both Evan’s story arc and the characters themselves were shaped. To get inside the heads of how the characters were written (and the journey they’ve gone on since their initial incarnation) was incr...

A beautiful and easily-accessible insight into the creative journey and the incredible commitment shown by the makers of this once-in-a-generation story. Of particular interest is how Levenson transformed the work from a cynical view into millennials obsession with social media to one of the most...

I really loved being able to read the entire script of Dear Evan Hansen and to learn about all of the work that went into creating the musical. The show shines a light on mental illness and loneliness but it also is filled with humor and heart. After reading this book and listening to the cast al...
