Stephen Chbosky on Dear Evan Hansen


On this episode of the Adventist Voices podcast, I interview Stephen Chbosky, director of the movie version of Dear Evan Hansen, about his motivations for turning the successful Broadway hit into a musical film. He famously wrote the best-selling coming-of-age novel The Perks of Being a Wallflower (1999). We also discuss the fraught relationship between adolescence and faith, and what we both love about the musical genre.
