No Pictures – Hit Refresh !
Evan Hansen, a teenager who struggles with severe social anxiety, writes a hopeful letter to himself as an assignment from his therapist before the first day of his senior year. His mother Heidi, a busy nurse’s aide who attends paralegal school at night, attempts to connect with Evan, but struggles to find common ground with him. The musical has received critical acclaim, particularly for Ben Platt’s leading performance, the lyrics, and the book, and has served as a touchstone for discussion about mature storytelling and themes explored in musical theatre. At the 71st Tony Awards, it was nominated for nine awards, winning six including Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Actor in a Musical for Platt.
