14 Songs, 56 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Ben Platt, as the titular hypersensitive teen, artfully carries the show in the debut musical scored by La La Land’s Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. Emotionally authentic strings-and-guitar-propelled songs—particularly the out-of-control Act 1 finale, “You Will Be Found”—drive a story about loneliness that leads to an Internet-shaking misunderstanding. The soaring “For Forever” and righteous, rock-driven anger of Rachel Bay Jones (as Ben’s mother, in “Good for You”) help give this musical the emotional heft of a great pop album.

Incredible

Don't miss this show. The music is so well crafted and performed so perfectly by everyone. You'll think about this show and its music for days after you see it. I was lucky enough to see it opening night in previews in NYC and have bought tickets to see it twice more since! Buy this album, see this show, and I promise you won't regret it!!
