Dear Evan Hansen is THE musical on Broadway for the 2016-2017 season, and deservedly so. It won six 2017 Tony awards, including Best Musical. I loved this show so much, if I could’ve score tickets to see it the next night, I would have gone again. It is that good. This show was the singular reason I engineered a mini NYC trip out of an extended stopover on my way to Toronto for a wedding. I ended up shelling out a grimace worthy dollar amount because of a flight mix-up. And I still don’t regret going to see this show. That’s how much I loved it.
