If you have not heard of the hit Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen, you either have A) no interest in Broadway or B) been living under a rock for the past year and a half.
Dear Evan Hansen tells the story of Evan Hansen, a boy with social anxiety. He loses his best friend Connor to suicide and then has to ensure all the hard times ahead of him. With his friend Alana and his parents by his side, Evan learns who he really is and sends us the message that we will all be found.
Dear Evan Hansen won six Tony awards this year including the award for Best Musical, beating fellow musicals Come From Away, Groundhog Day: The Musical and Natasha, Pierre and The Great Comet of 1812.
Dear Evan Hansen stars Ben Platt, whom you might have seen in a little movie called Pitch Perfect. Platt also won the Best Performance by an Actor in A Leading Role in A Musical award at the Tonys, making this his first award win.
