BGN interviews the team behind the Universal Pictures film Dear Evan Hansen.
Featured in the interviews are: Ben Platt (Evan Hansen), Amandla Stenberg (Alana Beck), Julianne Moore (Heidi Hansen), Amy Adams (Cynthia Murphy) and Stephen Chbosky (Director).
The breathtaking, generation-defining Broadway phenomenon becomes a soaring cinematic event as Tony, Grammy and Emmy Award winner Ben Platt reprises his role as an anxious, isolated high schooler aching for understanding and belonging amid the chaos and cruelty of the social-media age. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Stephen Chbosky (The Perks of Being A Wallflower, Wonder), the film is written for the screen by the show’s Tony winner Steven Levenson with music and lyrics by the show’s Oscar®, Grammy and Tony-winning songwriting team of Benj Pasek & Justin Paul (La La Land, The Greatest Showman).
