Dear Evan Hansen

I love living in DC and all the great venues there are to enjoy live theater. DC is also great because there are many shows that premiere here in DC before they head to Broadway. I have thoroughly enjoyed being apart of those beginning audiences. 

Tonight I went to see a new musical called Dear Evan Hansen. It was amazing! Very moving and applicable to today's world of social media and trying to fit in when you feel so alone. The messages in the show were very moving. When tragedy happens everyone wants to be apart of the buzz and connect to it. This is true of many events, celebrity weddings, natural disasters, racial attacks, political agendas, etc. Woth today's social media everyone wants to have something to say and a connection. This helps them to feel apart of something. For those who normally feel alone, rejected, unnoticed in this world , social media gives them a way to feel like they belong.
