Dear Evan Hansen had its opening night on Broadway – and it’s a rave!
Ben Platt, the star of the show, was joined by his co-stars at New York City’s Pierre Hotel on Sunday (December 4), including Rachel Bay Jones, Michael Park, Jennifer Laura Thompson, Kristolyn Lloyd, Will Roland, Mike Faist, as well as writers Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, director Michael Greif, and music supervisor Alex Lacamoire.
Celebs stepped out to support the show as well at the opening night performance, including Zendaya, who walked the carpet with Waitress star Keala Settle, Darren Criss, Sutton Foster with husband Ted Griffin, Aaron Tveit, Tina Fey with husband Jeff Raymond, Zachary Quinto, and Waitress composer Sara Bareilles with collaborator Jessie Nelson.
The New York Times reports that the show is a “gorgeous heartbreaker of a musical,” and Variety says, “lyrics go beyond the spoken thought and reach for the unspoken feelings hiding behind the words.”
