WHAT: Dear Evan Hansen—A world-premiere musical
WHERE: The Kreeger Theater
WHEN: July 10—August 23
Easy to make fun of August with its hot humid days…threat of hurricanes…the impending death of summer. A woeful month! The February of summer!
Easier to have fun in August by escaping into Arena Stage where an exciting new musical offers promise of a great new season ahead.
Dear Evan Hansen stars Ben Platt, best known for starring as Benji Applebaum in Universal Pictures’ smash hit Pitch Perfect. (Platt reprises his role in Pitch Perfect 2, which was released in May.)
The story revolves around Evan, who has high hopes for a perfect life if a letter and a lie don’t spoil it!
