The return engagement of the Tony and Grammy Award-winning musical "Dear Evan Hansen," scheduled to play Chicago from July 7 to Sept. 27, has been canceled due to the ongoing ban on large gatherings issued in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Broadway in Chicago on Wednesday announced the musical -- by composer/lyricists Benj Pasek and Justin Paul and writer Steven Levenson -- will return to Chicago in 2022 with dates to be determined.
