Dear Evan Hansen in Sacramento: A Review

Dear Evan Hansen in Sacramento: A Review

Dear Michael Coleman, 

Today is going to be a GREAT day, and here’s why: 

It was really cool to run into you last night at the Memorial Auditorium in Sacramento, for the Broadway smash Dear Evan Hansen, which runsthrough January 26. As I’m sure you were, I was blown away.  The production is nothing short of miraculous.  

In hindsight, Michael, I shouldn’t have been so surprised: the show won six 2017 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. And The Washington Post called it “One of the most remarkable shows in musical theater history.”

I agree wholeheartedly!

While Dear Evan Hansen explores several mature themes and includes jokes that aren’t for pre-teen ears, I think anyone who’s ever felt isolated or alone, at any time if his or her life, should catch one of the performances, don’t you?  The show delivers its first narrative wallop minutes after the lights dim, beginning an emotional roller coaster ride, and the delivery of a few life lessons, that I won’t soon forget.

I hope I never do.    

And after seeing Dear Evan Hansen, as I’m sure you will, I’m calling my mom today.
