confession // dear evan hansen
i agree. i think deh is good but it’s also just. average. sometimes i completely forget about it. the songs are good but it isn’t set somewhere that can take me away from my problems, it’s set in modern day, which is obviously where most of my problems are. at least with the other overrated musicals—like heathers, for example—can take me somewhere. deh and heathers take place almost just thirty years apart and yet with the problem of heathers being external, making it seem like a fantastical world when it really just is real life on steroids, dear evan hansen is pretty forgettable. also the ending is just very bland to me. one of my favorite mentors once said to me is “the only things people remember at a concert are the first and last things they hear.” if i can’t even remember the ending of dear evan hansen half the time then what’s the point?
