Update (As of 3/13/20):

Due to Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer's temporary ban on all events with over 250 people in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, all performances of Dear Evan Hansen at the Fisher Theatre (March 25-April 5, 2020) have been canceled. In the coming weeks, Broadway in Detroit hopes to announce dates for a future engagement (visit their site for more details on ticket refunds, etc.).
Updates will be made to this article as I receive more information.

Attention, musical theatre fans: If you’ve been sleeping on all the talent that’s been singing and dancing its way through the Motor City, it’s time to wake up and see what’s new with Broadway in Detroit! I’ve been attending Broadway in Detroit shows since the first year we moved to Michigan (read about my first Detroit musical experience here!) and each year, I’m thrilled to see that the entertainment just keeps getting better and better.

This spring, another major hit is coming to town: Wave hello to Dear Evan Hansen! Tickets for this off-the-charts-popular Broadway hit go on sale at 10:00 a.m. Friday, January 17th, so if you’ve had your sights set on catching it live, mark your calendar and read on below for more information.

Declared “One of the most remarkable shows in musical theater history” by the Washington Post, Dear Evan Hansen opened on Broadway in 2016 and has since broken all box office records at the Music Box Theatre. The musical has won multiple awards, including six 2017 Tony Awards (including Best Musical), a 2018 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album, and Best Long-Running Show/Best Touring Production in Broadway.com’s 2019 Audience Choice Awards.
