The Reviews for DEAR EVAN HANSEN are In…

December 5, 2016 // 0 Comments

The reviews for Dear Evan Hansen are in – and the critics agree that this new musical deserves to go viral. The story follows a socially awkward teen as he changes from stuttering loner to social media sensation…but maybe not in a good way.
