Critics Reviews

"Dear Evan Hansen belongs in that pantheon of musicals that lovers of the form seek to experience over and over again."
– Washington Post

"Extraordinary and Thrillingly Contemporary. This astonishing and intensely beautiful new musical not only understands what it means to be 17 years old today, it observes with singular honesty how warped our understanding of community has become. With a spectacularly rich book and a score that brings tears to your eyes, it’s the best Broadway show of the year."

The guy with my ticket was right where he was supposed to be. However, my seat could have been better.
