As far as musicals go, few are as timely as Dear Evan Hansen, the new tuner from songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, and book writer Steven Levinson. The story of a young man with a secret, and how he uses that secret to win himself the perfect life, Dear Evan Hansen stars Ben Platt and Laura Dreyfuss, alongside Broadway favorites John Dossett, Jennifer Laura Thompson, and Rachel Bay Jones. At a recent press event for the upcoming Second Stage Theatre production, the cast and creative team sat down with TheaterMania to discuss how the show itself speaks to the modern world.
