One of the joys of having a musical theatre actress for a friend is that she often has the insight to know when a new show will do well. It was through her that I first learned about Dear Evan Hansen, a musical that tells the story of a young man who struggles with being socially inept. Dear Evan Hansen will debut at the Segerstrom Center of the Arts January 1-13, 2019.
Dear Evan Hansen
Dear Evan Hansen has its origins in an incident that took place during songwriter/composer Benj Pasek’s high school years. The musical follows the story of Evan Hansen, a teenager who struggles with connecting to his peers. Longing for friendship and acceptance, Evan fabricates a relationship with a deceased student in order to establish a bond with the boy’s family.
The musical opened on Broadway 2 years ago, and has subsequently gone on to win six Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Score, Best Actor in a Musical, and Best Featured Actress in a Musical. The Washington Post’s Peter Marks also deemed Dear Evan Hansen “one of the most remarkable shows in musical theater history.”
