Dear Evan Hansen

Bandai Namco Livehouse, Shanghai, CHINA

May 8-9, 2020

A student production of Broadway's Tony Award winning Best Musical. During the first wave of performing arts recovery in Shanghai, collaborators from NYU Shanghai and NYU Go Local in Shanghai program brought this profound story about human connection to the Chinese audience. 

The musical focuses on teenager Evan Hansen, who suffers from a social anxiety disorder. After the suicide of fellow student Connor Murphy, a series of events land Evan in the center of a false narrative - that he was Connor's secret best friend. As Evan is thrust deeper into a web of lies, he gains everything he's ever wanted — a chance to belong. He becomes a beacon of hope for Connor's grieving family — only to witness everything unravel around him. In the end, he must face a harsh truth: even the best of intentions can become harmful.
