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."
– Chicago Tribune

Went with my 15 year old son and couldn’t help but feel for the protagonist. Loved the show. Brilliant storyline and very relatable for not only teenagers, but parents as well. The music was excellent too. Well done, Ben Platt, you’re going to go places.

I was questioning the sanctity of the musical, considering it was 2 and a half hours long and revolved around some really sensitive issues in today’s world. Wasn’t sure they would portray the essence just right, but I stood corrected. Dear Evan Hansen was hands down one of the best musicals I’ve seen to date. Thank you Headout for the random pop-up for this musical, without which I would’ve never considered going. Loved it!

Nice musical. But I didn’t get to see Ben Platt act, which was a real let-down. The understudy was good, just not brilliant.
