The Tony Award-winning co-creator of Dear Evan Hansen, Broadway’s 2017 Best Musical, presents his groundbreaking novel inspired by the show. Join him in conversation with Kelley Shanley, President & CEO of Broward Center for the Performing Arts. Program includes a special musical performance by Broward Center's youth ensemble "The Spotlights".
A simple lie leads to complicated truths in this big-hearted coming-of-age story of grief, authenticity and the struggle to belong in an age of instant connectivity and profound isolation. A letter that was never meant to be seen by anyone draws high school senior Evan Hansen into a family's grief, and he is given the chance of a lifetime: to belong. No longer tangled in his once-incapacitating anxiety, this new Evan has a purpose. And a website. Every day is amazing until everything is in danger of unraveling. Join author Steven Levenson as he provides his firsthand account of the creation of this blockbuster show and the response to Evan Hansen’s story.
