The title character, Evan Hansen, is desperate to shed his anxiety problem and make friends, but he can't seem to make it happen. Even worse, he can't get people to notice he even exists, and it is making his anxiety even worse. His mom tries to give him some pointers on how to improve his place. His therapist suggests that he write letters to himself about how good that his day is going to be. When one of those letters is found on a deceased student, Evan Hansen's life will never be the same, for better or worse.
