Following a sold-out run in Washington D.C., the new musical Dear Evan Hansen had its off-Broadway opening at Second Stage theater on Sunday, May 1st. A day before his scheduled stint at the venue, Aaron Tveit appeared at the opening to lend his support. “What an incredibly beautiful, emotional show,” he stated on Instagram. “The cast is beyond stellar top to bottom.”

Directed by Next To Normal‘s Michael Greif with a score by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, the production has been heralded by critics as being “entertainingly smart and radiating charm, wit, and humor.” It seems to be loved by audiences, too: the New York run is also sold out! However, Second Stage notes that a limited number of General Admission tickets – as well as tickets reserved for youths (at $30) – are available at the box office an hour before curtain. If you’re in the area, it might be worth stopping by to catch the original musical “for the outsider in us all.”
