Though its for sure that Broadway in the live sense took a hit that was incomprehensible because of the pandemic, its great to find some re-openings being announced for the coming months. It’s also great to find hits like “In The Heights” and now “Dear Evan Hansen” being made into live film presentations. Universal Pictures has just released their first official trailer of the adaptation of the hit starring Ben Platt and you can enjoy this and more down below.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: Whew, that was a really powerful trailer and it found me getting sad during a few parts. The story is a really interesting one if you haven’t read up on it already. “Dear Evan Hansen” was one of the plays that I was interested in seeing during the original Broadway run but time and financials don’t always permit this from happening and well in a few words I missed it. I listened to the soundtrack a few times on Spotify and I really enjoyed it. I liked this trailer and while I don’t generally go to the movies for films like this, having not been in such a setting since February of 2020 might just find me changing this stance since I miss the experience so very much. The aforementioned “In The Heights” will be in some theaters and also on HBO Max so I might give that one a go on the service since I am paying for it after all. Closing up I wonder what you reader thought at the trailer and if the idea of a live film of the story interests you at all. Chime in down below in the comments section. See you next time, be safe.
