Broadway's 'Dear Evan Hansen' to Become a Young Adult Novel

The smash hit Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen will soon become a young adult novel that you can read at home!

Val Emmich has written an adaptation of the Tony-winning show, which will be published this October by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.

The show’s writer Steven Levenson explained to The New York Times why the creative team behind the musical decided to turn it into a novel.

“We have felt a certain discomfort with the fact that it is so expensive to come see the show, we can only have 1,000 people a night, and there are so many people who can’t come to New York,” he said. “There were people responding to the show without having even seen it, and we did feel like, what are some ways that we can get this show to more people?”

There will also be parts of the book that you don’t get to experience in the show, including moments that are only alluded to on stage. Composers Benj Pasek and Justin Paul sent Emmich songs that weren’t used for the musical and Levenson provided scenes that were cut. The material was reworked to be used in the novel!

Noah Galvin Explains Trying to Make 'Evan Hansen' His Own

Noah Galvin is currently starring on Broadway in the hit musical Dear Evan Hansen and he has opened up about trying to make the role his own after taking over for Tony winner Ben Platt.

The 23-year-old actor stopped by the Build Series with the show’s writer Steven Levenson on Tuesday (December 12) in New York City.

“There’s a large part of me that wanted to put my stamp on this role and make it my own, but upon receiving my script and picking apart all of the dialogue I realized that so much of this character lives in Steven’s very, very rich text. There wasn’t much work that I really had to do because it was all there. Like, the self-editing, the repetition in his speech and all that,” Noah said.
