Sitting in the audience at the original production of Dear Evan Hansen at Washington, D.C.’s Arena Stage in 2015, New York actor David Rowen was immediately inspired.
Rowen, a Helen Hayes award nominee, fell in love with the themes and music of the now-hit Broadway show. Along with fellow New York actors/musicians Nick Lehan and Austin Colby, Rowen released this new arrangement of the show’s signature solo “Waving Through a Window” as a trio.
The story of one young man’s struggle to find his voice, Dear Evan Hansen includes music and lyrics by Oscar winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. Shortly after the release of the digital cast recording of Dear Evan Hansen on February 3, the album reached the Billboard Top 10, reaching the highest debut of a cast recording since 1961.
