Dear Evan Hansen Tickets in NYC

Dear Evan Hansen Ticket Prices & Synopsis

Since launching in the Music Box Theatre at December 2016, Dear Evan Hansen has rapidly come to be the most recent sensation from the realm of musical theatre. The series instantly established itself as one of Broadway's hottest tickets, making great acclaim from critics and audiences alike. It made a Critic's Pick designation from New York Times critic Charles Isherwood, who commended the drama for attractive to emotion without coming off as saccharine. "The musical is excellent for families searching for something yeastier and more complicated than the typical sugary diversions," he wrote. Many also gave the series props because of its timeliness, as Dear Evan Hansen successfully catches a second where society attempts to comprehend the perception-bending forces of social networking. "Nothing on societal media is correct, the series demonstrates; we're all fake information," critic Jesse Green composed for Vulture. "How could this be the case once we have not even heard to talk frankly -- except possibly in the theatre -- on the truest, most troublesome things?"

The drama follows its title character, Evan Hansen (previously played with Ben Platt, who had been succeeded by Taylor Trensch), a teenage loner who finds himself an immense source of comfort and hope in the aftermath of the passing of one of his own peers. The series also stars Laura Dreyfuss (After) as Evan's crush Zoe, and Rachel Bay Jones (Pippen) at a fantastic performance as Evan's mother.
