Audiences watch as Evan struggles with finding himself and wrangling this lie and the life he’s created as a result.


from Dear Evan Hansen
A letter that was never meant to be seen, a lie that was never meant to be told, a life he never dreamed he could have. Evan Hansen is about to get the one thing he’s always wanted: a chance to finally fit in.

Both deeply personal and profoundly contemporary, Dear Evan Hansen is a new American musical about life and the way we live it.

Hailed by critics and audiences alike, this bold new musical moved Peter Marks of The Washington Post to declare it: “A heart-piercing trip to the place that musical theater can sometimes take us to.”And Charles Isherwood of The New York Times to call it: “A fresh, vibrant musical that opens the heart and the mind.”

Dear Evan Hansen, which pairs the three time Tony Award® nominated director Michael Greif (Rent, Next to Normal, Grey Gardens) with the Tony-nominated composing team of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (A Christmas Story, Dogfight, NBC’s Smash) and award-winning playwright Steven Levenson (Showtime’s Masters of Sex) now takes the next step on its remarkable journey: Broadway.“

Running Time: 2 hours and 30 minutes, including one intermission
Audience: Ages 12+; children under 4 are not permitted in the theatre

We went here because it received a Tony for best musical. Yes there is music, but this was not like any musical I’ve been to. We were taken off guard by the subject matter of teen suicide. The subject matter is very heavy. If you are looking for an upbeat show on Broadway this is not for you.

If you have children - this one is current and will speak to them. It was moving and relevant. The content is mature - but helps to facilitate open conversation and awareness. The music and performances were outstanding!

"Very dissappointed"

I wanted to like SHE, given the awards and hype. But It just lacked so much. Dialogue was weak, music and songs were forgetable. The set and costumes were plain and boring and some of the singers were no better than students in a high school production. Storyline was somewhat absurd and I found it all quite boring and made my exit at intermission. Unfortunately the tickets were pricey but it just held no magic for this theatergoer.

I was able to get half-price tickets for this show at TKTS, which had not been available on several previous visits. Dear Evan Hansen lives up to its numerous awards and great reviews. Although the subject matter is offbeat, you are drawn in by the emotional journey of Evan and the other characters. The dialog and lyrics are very moving. The lead, Jordan Fisher, is tremendously talented. My seat was close to the stage, and I could see his every facial expression, every tear, every mannerism. It seemed as if he were living the role, rather than acting it. I can't imagine giving that much to an audience day after day. The rest of the cast was very strong as well. I thoroughly enjoyed my evening and highly recommend this show.
