Dear Evan Hansen Review


Dear Evan Hansen Set Design

Dear Evan Hansen is a Musical that has recently come to the Des Moines Civic Center as a part of their Broadway series. The musical is about a teenage boy named Evan Hansen, who pretends to be friends with a boy who committed suicide.

This show explores themes such as lying, the truth about friendships, and mental health. Along with these messages there is a fantastic soundtrack with Ben Platt, who starred as Evan Hansen in the Broadway premiere.

Kimberly Hall said that she, “thought it was amazing” and loves the message that, “You are not alone.” Paige Jansen went and watched the play. “The music was great and after listening to the track forever, the lyrics make a lot more sense.” Dear Evan Hansen will soon be in Minnesota and Nebraska if you would like to see this amazing play.
