‘Dear Evan Hansen’ Letters Master List
Hello! Here is a full master list of all the letters in Dear Evan Hansen! Bellow each letter link I have a description of each letter and when it’s used in the play. If you see any missing, message me and I’ll add it to the list! I also included extra material at the end of the list. **Act two letters may contain spoilers!**
Note: This is a work in progress, and is actively being worked on!
Letter #1: Evan Hansen to Himself
- This letter is used in the opening scene of the play when Evan is drafting his letter to himself, as assigned by his doctor, Dr. Strauss.
Letter #2: Evan Hansen to Himself
- The most famous letter of the show. Evan wrote this letter in the computer lab on the first day of school, after a phone call with his mom. He printed it out and was found by Connor Murphy. After a short conversation with Evan, Connor asks if the letter is his. He begins to read it and sees the part about his sister, Zoe. Connor becomes mad and blows up on Evan. Evan pleads to get the letter but Connor takes it with him. This is mistaken by the Murphy’s as Connor’s last words or his suicide note.
- The first letter that Evan and Jared write to make it appear as though Evan really was friends with Connor. This is in the song “Sincerely, Me”
Letter #4: Evan Hansen to Connor Murphy
- The second letter in “Sincerely, Me”
Letter #5: Connor Murphy to Evan Hansen
- The third letter in “Sincerely, Me”
