Come From Away (The Musical Company) Dear Evan Hansen is one of the few Broadway musicals that are original creations, not based on a previous book, play or movie.
The book is my favorite among all the musicals of the year, but the music by itself is not as impressive.
The protagonist was an articulate, neurotic, funny, gay Jewish man named Marvin, who leaves his wife for another man, and has to deal with the confusion that it causes in his son who is preparing for a bar mitzvah.
In the 1990 sequel, the men remained the same but Faith Prince was the wife.
