3.0 star rating Janet from Houston, Texas


Had really high expectations after family members had seen the Broadway production and expected to be really affected by emotional impact. In fact the Houston touring production totally undercut the visceral impact by technical issues. The break in the action seemed very amateurish due to some technical issue. Far worse was the audio imbalance. Singing by main characters below par but far worse the were miked to screaming thus no subtlety or true feeling. Very sad. Seats ere exceedingly uncomfortable.Wouldnot recommend.

Saw Dear Evan on Broadway in Nee York and was excited to bring my extended family to see it this Thanksgiving. Saw it 11/29/2019 at 7:30pm. I got tickets on Row KK Section C in the Orchestra section because it was the only place with 8 seats together. First, the computer screens for the tech people were FACING us with blinding white light the ENITRE show. Horrible!! It was very quiet at times, they need to turn it UP in the back to hear over the SQUEAKY chairs in there, for Gods sake people, sit still!! On the seating map it appeared we were in the middle, but we were at the absolute back under the balcony, couldn’t see actors faces or hear them often. So it took me out of it because it was incredible in NYC. The singers were amazing, Evan was better than in NYC, just wow. Really wish it had been louder and their computers weren’t in our faces the entire time, really unfortunate. If you go here sit as close to the front as you can so you’re not distracted by the computers.

the music overtook the voices of the actors. Verbal was unclear. Pregnant pauses throughout the show lead you to beleive something else was supposed to happen. Not one of the better show experiences at the Kravis.

2.0 star rating Dr. Judy S. from San Diego, California


I just saw the show in San Diego. The acoustics were so poor that at best one could understand 60% of the words. In addition, the music was loud enough to drown out the voices. The actors talked so fast that there was little chance to understand what they were saying (or singing). Friends who have seen this play in NYC or London loved it. I think the venue, and possibly the elocution of the touring cast, really does a disservice to this play.

2.0 star rating Disappointed in Charm City from Baltimore, Maryland


Sound wasn’t the best and at times I couldn’t understand the actors. Music was good but the story was just meh. I didn’t connect with the play and did not feel moved once.

2.0 star rating Karen B. from Detroit, Michigan


I attended the performance at the Detroit Fisher Theatre. I had a seat on the mezzanine level and it was a good seat. I have to say, I was disappointed. The performers were mediocre at best. I really felt like they were just going through the motions. There was no emotional impact or connection. The theater itself is beautiful, so I enjoyed being there and everyone who worked there was efficient and polite. As a disabled guest, though, I was disappointed to find that there were no handicapped accessible bathroom stalls on the mezzanine level. There was a long line for the bathroom during intermission and the performance began again before most of the women were out of the line, including me. I ended up leaving at intermission because they would not let me go back to my seat and I was just done with everything by that point. I found out later there is a handicapped accessible bathroom in the foyer of the building.

What we thought

emotional Remarkable INSPIRING

Get dressed, pack your tissues, and go see this show!

Dear Evan Hansen beautifully explores the search for love, dealing with grief, loneliness, and self-exploration while being surrounded by digital noise. We may have mastered worldwide connectivity but have we begun to conquer the power of communication?
