Dear Evan Hansen
Photograph: Joan Marcus

In this captivating original musical, Hello, Dolly! scene-stealer Taylor Trensch 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 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!
