Synopsis of Dear Evan Hansen
Evan Hansen is a teenager with severe social anxiety and only one friend. He is struggling to change that as he begins his last year of high school. An assignment from his therapist leads to a misunderstanding that casts him in the centre of a tragedy. Evan’s life begins to look the way he always hoped it would, he’s finally found a way to fit in but can he maintain it?
Many theatre fans familiar with the production have wondered whether Dear Evan Hansen will make them cry, and the answer is probably yes. those fortunate enough to have seen the Broadway production have admitted to sobbing during the closing song in Act 1, 'You Will Be Found'. While the musical has many sad moments, there is plenty of comic relief to go around.
Dear Evan Hansen has been lauded for shining a light on issues like teen suicide, mental illness and the need to fit in. The original cast were lauded especially Ben Platt who originated the title role and won a Tony for his performance. We are excited to see what the UK cast of Dear Evan Hansen looks like.
Will Dear Evan Hansen be made into a film?
It was recently announced last autumn that the film rights to Dear Evan Hansen were purchased by Universal Pictures, which means a film adaptation of the musical is highly likely. Ben Platt, who originated the titular role of Evan Hansen on Broadway, is already in talks to reprise his role for the feature-length film. His father, Marc Platt, along with Adam Siegel are slated to produce the film with Steven Levenson set to write the screenplay. Pasek and Paul will also have creative control of the film, serving as executive producers for the silver screen adaptation.
