In this captivating original musical, actual teenager Andrew Barth Feldman now plays the title role of 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. Read the full review.

This is the best musical i have ever seen. Trust me i have seen probably over 50 musicals including: Hamilton , Wicked and Fiddler on the roof and this is the best by far. When i got the tickets i didn't know much about it but had listen to about 3 of the song. which sold me to buy the tickets. Seeing it live is a whole another experience. I would recommend this to 13+ though with strong langue and topics.The acting for Evan is fantastic with so much emotion that it feels real . The music is absolutely amazing. I bought the sound track and cant stop listing to it. Each song has its on feeling to it but i think the real reason i really like this play is because its so relate able and you can really feel the pain they go through. I know how so people like to read the book first but not for this you need to see the play first. That's what i personal think. I hope to see this play again. Thx for reading i defiantly recommend it.
Wonderful and heartwarming! I’d give it 6 stars if I could. Beautiful musical score, acting is good, and the plot has an emotional element that will draw you in. I watched it a year ago and I’m still humming the soundtrack and planning to watch it again.
This show is incredible and very worthy of the hype surrounding it. I was on the fence about going because of the expensive tickets, but am happy that I did; the soundtrack, story, and vibrant cast are all worth the price. I would definitely try to see this before the Tonys in June, where I'm sure it will earn many accolades and even more exposure.
If you've been waiting for the new "Next to Normal" to hit Broadway, it's finally arrived. 'Dear Evan Hansen' is simultaneously sweet, dark, and hopeful - it's the best representation of the digital age that I've ever seen in theater. The pop-rock music is sung wonderfully by the whole cast - Ben Platt is amazing, but so are Lauren Dreyfuss and Rachel Bay Jones - and the soundtrack is perfect for listening to with your family after the show. Definitely a must-see!
