Dear Evan Hansen in Chicago, 2020

This is a story about a teenager, Evan Hansen, who is suffering from social anxiety and is ready to do anything to get friends, love, care and attention. Including pretending to be the best friend of his deceased school rival.

The musical is often described as a social drama, but the script has lots of underlying hues. Sometimes it turns from drama to the dark comedy, then to a detective story, romantic school story and back. It also touches such complicated matters as drug abuse and suicide. The main question asked in Dear Evan Hansen is: shall we pretend to be socially fine when we are definitely not? Can the loving and caring family save a person from descending into madness, or we need all the society to notice and help?

A marvelous play about social anxiety, school life and desire to be loved and noticed has already conquered the hearts all over the world! Will it conquer yours?

Who Is in the Chicago Cast of Dear Evan Hansen?

Of course, we can’t predict the exact cast of Dear Evan Hansen in Chicago in 2020. But what we see now is a constellation of talented and professional people that make the story tap right into our souls.

The current performer of the main role is Ben Levi Ross. Ben’s Evan Hansen is just a reserved and kinda awkward guy next door. Ross brilliantly opens Evan’s hidden depths (or shall we say hidden abyss?) through the course of the story, making us shift from rage to sincere empathy.

Zoe is played by Jessica Philips. Her openness and sincerity in this role give soul and flesh to Zoe’s and Evan’s feelings. Jessica’s Zoe is kind and mild and her breakdowns aren’t so prominent as the troubles of the other characters, but we clearly see her growing and then shattered feelings, her shock because of her brother’s death and reconciliation with Evan in the end.

Phoebe Koyabe as Heidi Hansen is an embodiment of “moving on.” Her role is seldom appreciated as much as it deserves, but Heidi is a crucial character. Phoebe explicitly shows Heidi’s obliviousness at first, and then her guilt, care and overcoming her own misery for the sake of her troubled son. Rachel’s Heidi is a Mama Bear, in her own, quiet way.
