Dear Evan Hansen, the Tony Award-winning musical recently finished its Broadway run, but it’s delighting audiences around the country with its tour. I talked to Alaina Anderson, who plays Zoey Murphy, and Lili Thomas, who plays Cynthia Murphy about protecting their mental health, telling this story with a mixed-race family, and their special bond.

We also talked about their tour essentials and the food they have to eat while in Detroit.

Dear Evan Hansen is playing in Detroit at the Fischer Theatre until October 9th. You can buy tickets here.
