Well worth seeing this show. It is still one of the best musicals in a long while. All ages should appreciate "Evan Hanson" A reason it is a big hit.

The theater is relatively small but we were able to get two seats on the aisle in the 8th row a day before the performance. There weren't a lot of empty seats on the lower level but there were some. I enjoyed the performance but...More

Dark theme about teenage suicide. Only two different sets for the whole show which is very modest in comparison to other high end shows. Music was good but not spectacular like most other Broadway shows. Paid over 400 per ticket which was way too much...More

A dark teenage subject of suicide but great acting and singing. Lead actor draws you in emotionally. After an aloof, high school classmate commits suicide, Evan Hanson pretends he was a good friend and falsely gains recognition and friends.

I thought it was well done, but didn't realize it was about teenage suicide. The songs weren't memorable to me and it just felt dark and depressing - as the theme suggests. Again, talented cast as all Broadway shows are, but for 200$ a ticket,...More

was swept away by the beautiful story and extraordinary music from the moment the orchestra band played the first few bars. This is not a story for the light at heart. It is a serious story about teens in tremendous pain and the emotional issues...More

My mom suggested that we see this musical when she joined me for a recent business trip in NYC. I didn't know the storyline before going, but am so glad that we went. The story was so relevant to Generation Y's struggle with mental health,...More

I would take my 12 year old. Just have a talk about the language (a few "f" words) and of course the content ... suicide prevention. I wish every tween and teen could see it!

My favorites are Carmine's, Tony's Di Napoli and Bond 45. All are Italian and quick enough to go to pre theater. I always make a reservation and always have dinner at 6:00 for an 8:00 show. The restaurants are packed so... More
