Dear Evan Hansen

Dear Evan Hansen

In this captivating original musical, Ben Platt gives a stunning performance—funny, sweet, beautifully sung and exquisitely worked-out in its physical details—as a high school student thrust into social relevance after a classmate's suicide. Benj Pasek and Justin Paul's score combines well-crafted lyrics with an exciting pop sound, and Steven Levenson’s book gives all the characters shaded motives. The production has moved to Broadway after its sold-out run at Second Stage Theatre. Noah Galvin (The Real O'Neals) takes over the title role on November 21, to be followed by Hello, Dolly! scene-stealer Taylor Trensch in January. Read the full review.
