TONY AWARD - OUTER CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD - HELEN HAYES AWARD
A tribute to the outsider in us all, Dear Evan Hansen is about someone you know, maybe even someone you are, but more than anything, it's about discovering the person we all long to be - ourselves.
All his life, Evan Hansen has felt invisible; to his peers, to the girl he loves, sometimes even to his own mother. But that was before he wrote the letter - that led to the incident- that started the lie - that ignited a movement - that inspired a community - and changed Evan's status from the ultimate outsider into the opportunity of a lifetime: the chance to be somebody else.
But how long can Evan keep his secret? And at what price?

For those allergic to synthetic sentiment, rest assured that the show, with a haunting score by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (the coming movie musical “La La Land,” for which they wrote the lyrics, is already generating Oscar buzz), matched by a book of equal sensitivity by Steven Levenson, doesn’t sledgehammer home its affecting story. On the contrary, the musical finds endless nuances in the relationships among its characters, and makes room for some leavening humor, too. It is also the rare Broadway musical not derived from or inspired by some other source, which is refreshing in itself.
Simply put: Platt is giving one of the greatest leading male performances I’ve ever seen in a musical, and the thrillingly modern and moving Dear Evan Hansen is worthy of it.
... when a musical drama clicks, an amazing fusion event occurs: The songs and the story enlarge each other in the process of becoming inseparable. Think of Sweeney Todd or, more intimately, Fun Home. And now add to the list Dear Evan Hansen
