Darren Criss Celebrates 'Dear Evan Hansen' Off-Broadway Opening!

Darren Criss Celebrates 'Dear Evan Hansen' Off-Broadway Opening!

Darren Criss is dapper in a suit while arriving at the Off-Broadway opening celebration of Dear Evan Hansen held at the Second Stage Theatre on (May 1) in New York City.

The 29-year-old actor was joined at the event by Betsy Wolfe, as well as star-writer of the play Ben Platt and the rest of his co-stars.

Dear Evan Hansen is described as follows: “All his life Evan Hansen has felt invisible. To his peers, to the girl he loves, sometimes even to his own mother. But that was before he wrote the letter — that led to the incident— that started the lie — that ignited a movement – that inspired a community — and changed Evan’s status from the ultimate outsider into the somebody everyone wants to know. But how long can Evan keep his secret? And at what price?”
