Dear Evan Hansen
- Winner, Tony Award for Best Musical 2017
An original musical that explores the poignant desire for human connection in the tumultuous life of one young man. Evan is shy, lonely, and bullied for it?teeming with the irrepressible emotions all too familiar with anyone who's ever been a teenager. After a tragedy strikes, Evan's life suddenly gets turned around, but is it ultimately for the better?
"Smartly crafted, emotionally open-hearted and ideally cast, it's a new musical that has been embraced by millennials?yet its appeal is universal. Dear Evan Hansen is the best new musical of the year!"?Terry Teachout, Wall Street Journal
"The musical finds endless nuances in the relationships among its characters, and makes room for some leavening humor, too. . . . it should also appeal to just about anyone who has ever felt, at some point in life, that he or she was trapped 'on the outside looking in,' as one lyric has it. Which is just about everybody with a beating heart. "?Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
