Now I haven’t seen this play yet and being in the midwest, I’m guessing it won’t be here for a while. I did however see a story on it recently and must say, it sounds like a must see for me.
I also can’t remember where I first saw the story about this play but this review over at the New York Times entitled “Review: In Dear Evan Hansen, a Lonely Teenager, a Viral Lie and a Breakout Star” tells you all you need to know about the play. In fact, it’s a play for anyone with a special ability, which in reality is all of us.
As a single dad and the father of three kids including one with autism, theater isn’t high on my list of things to do. I have however seen a couple plays recently that looked good. I believe one is called War Horse, which of course my daughter wants to see and the other one apparently is one that one a few Tony awards last weekend called The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.
The reason I know this is because of the article entitled “Play Centered Around Teen With Autism Wins At Tonys” By David Ng over at the LA Times. Hmmm…
