"Dear Evan Hansen" is about how we share, like, and friend, love, feel, and survive in the modern world. Winner of six 2017 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. More…
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. Created by three-time Tony-nominated director Michael Greif ('Rent,' 'Next to Normal,' 'Grey Gardens'), Tony-nominated songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul ('A Christmas Story,' NBC’s 'Smash'), and playwright Steven Levenson, 'Dear Evan Hansen' is a new American musical about life and the way we live it.
See it if i enjoyed a lot of the songs and performances (esp. taylor trensch and rachel bay jones)
Don't see it if i don't get the hype, and i have major problems with the story itself.
See it if you like to see an outstanding Broadway musical! I was lucky to meanwhile have seen it 3 times and still love every minute of it!
Don't see it if you don't like musicals. Or you just suffered a loved one's death and can't deal with a show with teen suicide even if the end is hopeful.
See it if you lower your expectations from all the hype it is getting. It's just okay, not that special. The lead actor is impressive.
Don't see it if you don't want to see something that has already been done in many other shows.
See it if you like innovative theater about modern day themes with great singing and acting. Ben Platt is amazing!
Don't see it if you don't like musicals. Otherwise I can't imagine why you shouldn't see it.
See it if you want to see a play which will affect all of your emotions from happiness to sadness.
Don't see it if you do not enjoy plays that highlight individual's emotional frailties.
See it if you enjoy a powerful story told through song. A must see, the show is exquisite. Completely breathtaking from start to finish.
Don't see it if the subject of death really bothers you. Cannot handle shows that are dark and make you really think.
See it if your desires begin and end with "story about kids with problems"
Don't see it if you need the narrative to actually resolve the characters' problems, or you require more than 4 songs to be worthwhile
See it if The new kid is great. Some of the songs are good. It’s obviously designed to gut punch, and if you’re open to it, it’s great.
Don't see it if I get why the ending is the way it is, but I just don’t buy it.
See it if you want to see a touching, beautifully written musical play that deals with family dynamics and teenage social issues.
Don't see it if you want a more traditional musical comedy.
See it if you are of the generation of people feeling like an outsider. See it if you like Ben Platt.
Don't see it if you don't want to listen to 2.5 hours of complaining teenagers or you think lying is wrong. Don't se if u like more traditional shows
See it if you are a breathing human being. You need to see the performance of Ben Platt. Are you kidding me? He's everything. Story & songs great.
Don't see it if You can't handle social anxiety or a theme of suicide.
See it if If you have been ignored and isolated as a teenager; you care about issues of depression, community, self-identity, social network...etc.
Don't see it if You want light themes. Personally, I don't like the ending; there should be better ways to end the story.
See it if You want to see the best musical of the year (my opinion) You want to see the best actor in a musical (Ben Platt) who was outstanding
Don't see it if You don't have tissues ... some tears may well up
See it if A wonderfully executed musical about loneliness and mental health issues appeals to you. An original script, not based on a film.
Don't see it if Grave issues, like teen suicide, depression, social anxiety and autism put you off. If good and bad needs to be in black and white for you.
See it if you want a show that gets at what it means to be human and feel alone.
Don't see it if trigger (and mild spoiler) warning - suicide.
See it if What can one say about DEH? Simply the best show I've seen bare none. Score and book are superb. Cast was amazing. Run to see this!
Don't see it if Can't think of a reason not to! The story deals with suicide, so be advised. But it is still a feel good and heartfelt experience.
See it if you want to see a beautifully written show that has a perfect blend of humor and sorrow. Ben Platt gives a performance not to be missed
Don't see it if you are looking for a fluffy sweet musical. you want a musical with a big cast, elaborate sets, or lots of dancing
See it if You want to see what the buzz is about. We saw it in Washington before NY and can't understand why it is doing well. Did it get rewritten?
Don't see it if You're not into teenage angst and you have no sympathy for the hero getting into trouble through his own stupidity.
See it if You want a beautiful, powerful musical about the difficulties of being a teen and the consequences of lying. Ben Platt is AMAZING. Must see.
Don't see it if Tough teen situations & covering up lies aren't your thing. You want a light comedy. Emotions are intense; story is profound. I cried A LOT.
See it if You will enjoy a show with memorable, melodic songs; family issues; and theme related to the often-confusing nature of contemporary reality.
Don't see it if SPOILER ALERT. You will be triggered by a suicide-related plot. You don’t like musicals or plays set in high school.
Also Loved this musical. Entertaining and substantive. Genuinely creative.
See it if You want to have a brilliant theater experience. Thought provoking, sensitive and a window to understand the unspoken plight of others.
Don't see it if You don’t like musicals with a message that makes you uncomfortable
