Winner of the 2017 Tony Award for Best Musical   “Dear Evan Hansen lodges in your head long after you’ve seen it or heard it or read it. It feels like a pure expression from young writers at a crossroad of coming to terms with who they are and what they want to say about the world. Its honesty and truths haunt and ultimately open us up to ask the same question, no matter what our age or crossroad: What are the lies we tell ourselves?” –James Lapine (from the Foreword)   A letter that was never meant to be seen, a lie that was never meant to be told, a life he never dreamed could be his. Evan Hansen is about to get the one thing he’s always wanted: a chance to belong. Deeply personal and profoundly universal, Dear Evan Hansen is a groundbreaking American musical about truth, fiction, and the price we’re willing to pay for the possibility to connect.   *This publication includes the book and lyrics to the musical, as well as a foreword by James Lapine. Please note that it does not include the musical score.*   Steven Levenson is the book writer for Dear Evan Hansen.

    I've been into plays and seeing things live. Seeing as I do not live in New York and can't go see this on broadway, and have no patience to wait until the tour, I purchased this so I could at least read it. Not only is this just an all around well written play that really focuses on topics typically not covered, but while you read it you can just sense the emotions of the characters and really feel like you're watching the play. No , I hope this goes without saying I'm still going to go see the play when I get the chance, and all this has done is build up the hype. No wonder these guys wrote the music for la la land.
