The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

NEW YORK — The pub­lish­ers of a best­seller about the mak­ing of “Hamil­ton’’ are hop­ing for sim­i­lar luck with an­other prize-win­ning mu­si­cal, “Dear Evan Hansen.’’ Grand Cen­tral Pub­lish­ing told The As­so­ci­ated Press on Tues­day that “Dear Evan Hansen: Through the Win­dow’’ will be re­leased Nov. 21.

Billed as a “be­hind-thescenes’’ ac­count, the book was writ­ten by the cre­ative team of Steven Leven­son, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. The wrench­ing mu­si­cal about lone­li­ness, teen angst and sui­cide won six Tony Awards in June, in­clud­ing best book of a mu­si­cal for Leven­son and best score for Pasek and Paul. The book will in­clude per­sonal mem­o­ries, pho­to­graphs, un­re­leased lyrics and the “Dear Evan Hansen’’ li­bretto.

Last year, Grand Cen­tral pub­lished “Hamil­ton: The Rev­o­lu­tion,’’ fea­tur­ing com­men­tary from the show’s cre­ator and star, Lin-Manuel Mi­randa.
