The presenters well understand intra-family and intra-teen dynamics. The cast and staging are first-rate and the music unobtrusive but excellent.
The whole effect, alas, invoked a sadness about protagonists in no way admirable, just pitiable.
They create fantasy worlds about lives just as empty as the ones they’re actually living. Different, but no better.

This was an absolutely lovely show to go see with my 17-year old son and my husband. We had a great time. At first I was a little anxious, at it seemed to be a little slow, but the plot twist came soon enough that transformed the play and made the human stories very palpable and relatable. We laughed, we cried. This was absolutely memorable and a must-do!

This is an amazing musical which deals with mental health. It is funny, emotional and thought provoking. I can see why it won so many awards. The cast are all fantastic. Bravo.

Dear Evan Hansen lives up to every bit of the hype I’d heard! It’s something any parent of a teenager will be impacted by- and certainly relate to. Make sure to bring plenty of tissues- you will need them in various parts of the show. The set is absolutely amazing, and moves from scene to scene flawlessly, while displays from the likes of social media sites, texts, and other teen “vices” are projected ( changes up a bit) throughout. The characters are wonderful, and so much of what occurs in the story ( during no the show) is relatable to parents, teens ( DEFINITELY OLDER TEENS, mature subject matter and some very heavy scenes make this not quite suitable for the teen,early teen set) and perfectly captures the dynamics between the parent/teen relationship, but every bone chilling fear that every parent carries with them about their own child. Relatable to the teens as well, as much of the teen dynamic portrayed parallels what our teens experience daily. RUN, DONT WALK OR WAIT TO GET TICKETS! Worth every cent!
