Ben Platt’s portrayal of a high schooler in ‘Dear Evan Hansen’ has enraged some fans.
Dear Evan Hansen won acclaim from critics and audiences alike when it premiered on Broadway. Ben Platt’s acting, in particular, was praised by critics. The film, on the other hand, does not share this sentiment.
It’s been ripped to shreds by the audience.
Fans have been particularly irritated with one aspect of the picture. It has to do with Platt’s unconvincing age.
On Broadway, Ben Platt left the title character, but he returned for the film adaptation of ‘Dear Evan Hansen.’
The story follows the titular character, Evan Hansen, as he struggles to fit in until a classmate dies. When viewers first meet Evan Hansen, he appears to be a bit of a jerk.
