One of Broadway's best musicals has landed in Dallas! The six-time Tony-winning Dear Evan Hansen is now playing at Music Hall at Fair Park until December 8. But, what did the critics think?
The Dallas Culture Map was full of praise for the production, saying, "The journey through which Dear Evan Hansen takes audiences is emotionally complex but thoroughly rewarding. Don't confuse it for a blockbuster, though; it's an intimate show with songs and characters that hide their truths until just the right moments."
Audiences have also been loving Dear Evan Hansen as it travels across North American on tour...
"Powerful! A thought-provoking storyline with catchy music that will stay with you long after the final curtain call."
- Frances, San Francisco
"Outstanding talent delivers incredible material in an emotional journey that is so very entertaining."
- Matt, Chicago
"Poignant, topical, superb!"
- Rex, Greensboro
Dear Evan Hansen is a cautionary tale about how a lie can spread across a community long before the truth even has a look in. The eponymous Evan of the story is an anxiety-ridden high school misfit who is desperate for any form of recognition from his peers. So much so, that when his classmate Connor commits suicide after suffering depression, a mysterious suicide note appears in the weeks after, seemingly addressed to Evan.
Now infamous by association with the dead teen, Evan finally gains the spotlight that he craves. However, with a traumatized local community, not to mention his family, starts begging Evan for more clues about Connor's state of mind, Evan's world starts to unravel with frightening speed. With Connor's parents and sister Zoe (who just happens to be Evan's crush) finding solace in the note, it isn't long before the powers of social media start to question its validity, and Evan's own motives.
Dear Evan Hansen is now playing at Music Hall at Fair Park through to December 8.
