"The musical finds endless nuances in the relationships among its characters, and makes room for some leavening humor, too. . . . it should also appeal to just about anyone who has ever felt, at some point in life, that he or she was trapped 'on the outside looking in,' as one lyric has it. Which is just about everybody with a beating heart."―Charles Isherwood, The New York Times (2015-03-10)
"Smartly crafted, emotionally open-hearted and ideally cast, it's a new musical that has been embraced by millennials―yet its appeal is universal. Dear Evan Hansen is the best new musical of the year!"―Terry Teachout, Wall Street Journal (2015-05-11)

The only drawback to reading this book instead of seeing the musical is that you'll miss Ben Platt's STUNNING portrayal of Evan Hansen. I've never seen anything like it and he will surely win the Tony. I was utterly FLOORED by is performance and I don't know how he can do it 8 times a week!
Can you tell I have ALL the love for this show?
So, who is Evan Hansen? Evan Hansen is a senior in high school and when we first meet him, he has a broken arm. We first meet him in this story as he writes a letter to himself as part of an assignment to his psychologist. Hence, the "Dear Evan Hansen" title. The letters play a major role in this musical. Evan is insecure and his only friend, or the only person that interacts with him at all, is his cousin, Jared. His mother works long hours at the hospital as a nurse's aide and takes night classes to be a paralegal. His life takes a dramatic turn, for better or worse, when a kid at his school commits suicide and Evan gets swept up in a story that changes all their lives.
This script is beautifully written. It's a nice book to have when you live miles away and can't see the show in person. The story is heart-breaking, poignant, and manages to end on an uplifting note. I would highly recommend getting this book and the cast album, so that we may all drown in our feels together.
Dear Evan Hansen has an amazing message that leaves everyone relating to at least one character at one point or another throughout the play. I honestly did not expect this play to be so good. You don't need to be a musical theater fan to enjoy this book.
He got me the soundtrack for my birthday and it’s in my car now, either repeating “waving through a window” or the whole album over and over.
Finally one day it was time to read the play and make more sense of the story.
I read it all today, I didn’t have anything to do today and it’s not super long. At one point listened to “for forever” a bunch of times once I got to that point, it’s much more beautiful in context.
This seems like a stage script in some ways with singing in different parts and things like “oh” on one side are said a lot. I definitely did the right thing knowing the soundtrack so well before reading.
A beautiful story and soundtrack. Missed my chance to see the original Evan playing, he is done with his role soon and now it is all sold out. Should have gotten the 200 dollar tickets on the very left when I had the chance, but will have to settle for his replacement on stage someday when we go see it.
Has been a wonderful experience, this music and script, beautiful story, bravo.
