“Dear Evan Hansen”: Go!

All I can add to the chorus of bravos raining down on “Dear Evan Hansen,” which has just opened off-Broadway at Second Stage, is that its songs to me have a certain sameness that made my mind wander a bit during the evening. Otherwise: very affecting. And Ben Platt, playing an emotionally troubled teenager, is superb. Last year, Alex Sharp won a Tony for playing an emotionally troubled teen in “The Curious Incident…” Next, year, it could very well be Ben Platt.
