Los Angeles Times - Highly Recommended

"...But this beautifully acted touring production of ďDear Evan Hansen,Ē under the aerodynamic direction of Michael Greif, revealed to me, in my third encounter with the musical, another explanation for why everyone right now in Los Angeles is clamoring for tickets: Itís one of the most evocative portraits of the inner turmoil of adolescence ever put on stage."

LA Weekly - Highly Recommended

"...Those tuned into the world of Broadway or musicals might think Dear Evan Hansen over-hyped. But it's earned the buzz. It resonates and connects as it entertains. As the production itself references, today's world is oversaturated with content, which has led to fleeting attention spans. When something new comes along, it's easiest to just digest it quickly and move onto the next new thing."

"...While the 150-minute two-act flies by, thanks to Michael Greifís patient but compelling direction, itís possible the show could have more impact in houses smaller than the vast spaces booked for national tours; for those seated farther back, the only time you can truly see Evanís face is when itís rarely projected on one of the many rolling screens (simple sets by David Korins; complex projections by Peter Migrini; and sensitive lighting by Japhy Weideman)."

"...Have you ever told a lie or fabricated a story that made you feel important and needed in the lives of others? And one that brought happiness to those other people creating a better sense of community? Such is the premise for Dear Evan Hansen, the winner of six 2016 Tony Awards including Best Musical. Currently at the Ahmanson through November 25, Dear Evan Hansen is a big box office hit. Splendidly directed by Michael Greif, the cast of eight turn in indelibly gripping performances."

Cultural Weekly - Somewhat Recommended

"...This does not mean that the long first act is not redundant or that the insistent repetition of the songs and sheer amount of technical wizardry that overwhelms it (making a comment of its own) could not do with Less instead of all that More. But Evan Hansen has come to Los Angeles as a fully formed Huge Hit, so arguing with its success is arguing to change our orbit around the sun."

Stage Raw - Somewhat Recommended

"...Still, Dear Evan Hansen is the kind of show thatís worth seeing once. Itís got a catchy score, examines the family dynamic between teens and parents, and talks about mental illness frankly. But unlike Next to Normal, which tackles similar themes and opened nearly a decade ago, Dear Evan Hansen doesnít hold up to repeated viewings."

"...If you have seen the musical Dear Evan Hansen and are a fan, you might not want to read any further because I will be challenging most things that you hold dear about the show. I am sure to be one of the very few dissenting voices in my appraisal of this behemoth star-making musical."

On Stage and Screen - Recommended

"...Dear Evan Hansen is a very high quality show all-around, from the performances to the music to the very modern set and projection design (David Korins and Peter Nigrini), which shows a never-ending stream of tweets and texts and Facebook statuses, creating an ironic backdrop of constant connection for a show that is all about the anguish of feeling terribly alone. And regardless of where you decide Evan's moral compass falls, the message of the show is an important, hopeful one. "You are not alone," the cast sings in "You Will Be Found," the heart-wrenching act one closer. Sure, not all of the messaging is perfect-who Connor actually was as a person is largely lost in the shuffle as his death is appropriated for an internet movement, although that is quite possibly the point. But in each audience there is surely at least one person who desperately needs to hear that they are not alone, and for that reason, it is important that a show like Dear Evan Hansen exists."
