People Theater review: ‘Dear Evan Hansen’ taps into teenage angst in a powerful way; show’s got grown-up appeal 

pretty much everyone.jdziemianowicz@nydailynews.com Title: 'Dear Evan Hansen' Venue: Tony Kiser Theatre Location: 305 W. A high school senior’s lies lead to a world of hurt in “Dear Evan Hansen.” That sounds like kids’ stuff. Sensitive direction by Michael Greif (“Rent,” “Next to Normal”) is another asset. And you have to simply accept that untruths aren’t exposed sooner.Benj Pasek and Justin Paul’s multifaceted pop-rock score pushes many emotional buttons.

On the day of the shooting, Dear thought the agents were going to "take him out," Schiffelbein said. As in previous hearings, Dear made multiple comments in the courtroom.

Travel Ask Amy: Is it okay for adults to tell kids: 'Grab me a beer'? (4/25/16)

The least you should do is thank the couple for the invitation and express your excitement about their news. Recently, at a family gathering, I overheard my father-in-law ask my oldest to grab him a "beer" from an ice chest.My father-in-law is overweight and drinks a lot. Any invitation should be received with gratitude, even if it is to an event you won't be attending.Your husband's "stepgrandson" (maybe you could start to think of him as a grandson) is about to add a family member to the mix.
