Have you heard of Dear Evan Hansen, the new Broadway Musical? If not, you soon will. This show has quickly become a must-see show of 2017. All this is before any attention it is about to receive from the Tony Awards.
The show is written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, the duo who won an Oscar for their work on La La Land.
It is the story of a guy who is socially awkward and suffering from anxiety. He struggles to be accepted, find friends, love, or just someone to sign the cast of his broken arm.
Social media and social isolation are predominant themes of this wildly popular show. One which seems to speaking to our times of iphones and bullying.
What is accessible to all of us is the music, and it’s amazing. Original Cast Recording is available as well as songs and clips on YouTube.
