Making new version of Annie's hard, even a one-off musical (4,4,6)

Ross

I think it could be either:

dear evan hansen

dear

'musical' is the definition.

'making new version of annie's hard even a one-off' is the wordplay.
'making new version of' indicates an anagram.
'one' becomes 'i' (Roman numeral).
'off' indicates named letters should be taken away.
'annies'+'hard'+'even'+'a'='annieshardevena'
'annieshardevena' with 'i' removed is 'anneshardevena'.
'anneshardevena' anagrammed gives 'DEAR EVAN HANSEN'.

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
