DEAR EVAN HANSEN Comes to Chicago

DEAR EVAN HANSEN Comes to Chicago

The Dueling Critics, Kerry Reid and Jonathan Abarbanel, review the touring production of DEAR EVAN HANSEN. Plus, two additional recommendations.

LISTEN

“This is a more complex story and series of characters than most musicals are able to put on stage. In many ways it feels more like an elaborate play with songs, rather than say a musical like WICKED. As a result, the dialogue scenes are much longer and more complex than in most musicals, and they carry the weight of the story-telling” - Jonathan Abarbanel commenting on DEAR EVAN HANSEN

Both Kerry and Jonathan recommend the touring production of DEAR EVAN HANSEN.

And both critics have picks this week.

Jonathan recommends Goodman Theatre’s world premiere TWILIGHT BOWL.
