Dear Evan Hansen,
Today's going to be an amazing day and here's why…We've curated a collection of Dear Evan Hansen Best Quotes for all the musical, theatre, and book nerds out there!
Why is Dear Evan Hansen So Popular?
In November 2016, “Dear Evan Hansen” took Broadway by storm.
In 2017, the creators of the Broadway smash hit “Dear Evan Hansen” published a first book inspired by the musical, followed by a novel in 2018 (“Dear Evan Hansen: The Novel” by Val Emmich, Steven Levenson, Benj Pasek, and Justin Paul).
And now the critically acclaimed Broadway hit is coming to movie theatres September 24th.
The idea that one simple lie leads to incredibly complicated and painful truths is at the crux of this coming-of-age story about grief, anxiety, depression, authenticity, and the struggle to find yourself and belong in the age of insta-communication paired with brutally devastating isolation.
While the movie may be imperfect, it's an emotional rollercoaster that makes it near impossible to walk away without finding pieces of yourself in Evan's loneliness or search for belonging.
