Steven Levenson Quotes (Author of Dear Evan Hansen)
"Only Us" featuring Laura Dreyfuss and Ben Platt - DEAR EVAN HANSEN
for forever dear evan hansen
It is one of many reasons people go to the theater: to escape reality and immerse themselves in a world either better or simply different than their own. By a stroke of good luck, I was fortunate to be sitting in the orchestra section at the performance with my mom, a new Broadway convert thanks to this show, and I truly could not believe I was there until I sat down in my seat and the lights went down. As hard as I could try to put the experience into adequate words, it was something beautifully indescribable. So I will talk about a few other things that struck me as I sat in the midst of the most electric, appreciative, and supportive crowd I have ever been a part of in the 15 years I have been attending Broadway shows. The moment the lights went up on Ben Platt sitting, almost iconically, on his bed, the entire crowd stood up in unison.
