“Touching on themes such as social media, teen suicide, and anxiety, Dear Evan Hansen is a charming and emotional story of a high school student who gets caught up in a lie, made worse by the speed that information spreads online. The message is relevant not only for a generation that has grown up using social networks, but also for the adults and professionals that interact with youth on a regular basis. I was fortunate to see the musical in DC over the weekend before it heads to New York City for shows this coming spring.“
