Dear Evan Hansen at the Noel Coward Theatre

My silver arts award review of the musical Dear Evan Hansen

Dear Evan Hansen at the Noel Coward Theatre

On the 23rd of December I went to see Dear Evan Hansen. It was such an amazing performance and I really enjoyed watching it. the cast was very small but, together they were really powerful and put 100% into their acting. I thought that the sets were very effective because, even thought they were small and simple, the transitions to get them on and off of the stage and how they were used during the show was really interesting to watch and you didn't get bored.

There wasn't much dancing in this musical however, I felt that for this show it wasn't needed. This is because it is about such an emotional topic and worked better with just acting, singing and a bit of movement.

I couldn't say anything that I disliked about this musical except from the fact that it is quite a deep topic which could be upsetting to some people.

Overall I think that this is an amazing show that was really enjoyable and funny but, it also had some really sad parts which made it more interesting and i definitely recommend that you go and watch it!

    I'm glad you loved this show as much as I did! Your review doesn't give away any plot spoilers which I think is really important for this show as people will probably enjoy following the twists and turns in the story more if they don't know what to expect.
    I thought there were some amazing individual performances in the show. We saw an understudy playing the lead role of Evan Hansen, but he was brilliant. Sometimes I think its even better to see an understudy as they are working really hard to make the most of their opportunity to play a lead role.
