Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for the musical “Dear Evan Hansen” which hits cinemas on September 24th.
Ben Platt is reprising his Tony-winning role of Evan Hansen, a socially awkward teen who gets caught up in a lie when he says he was best friends with a schoolmate who commits suicide.
The act initially brings him closer to a crush and brings him attention but he must face repercussions when the truth surfaces.
Stephen Chbosky (“Perks of Being a Wallflower,” “Wonder”) is directing from a script by Steven Levenson while Benj Pasek and Justin Paul penned the music and lyrics.
Julianne Moore, Amy Adams, Esai Morales, Colton Ryan, Danny Pino, Kaitlyn Dever and Amandla Stenberg also star.
