Dear Evan Hansen's Marrick Smith

“My Connor has been called the scary Connor. There was a certain amount of physical danger that was brought into the room. We weren’t sure if Connor was going to punch his father in the face. And Michael Griest [director] says to me on the first day of rehearsal, ‘What I really love about you in this role is that this is the first time that I feel like Connor might actually hurt someone. The energy that you bring makes me think you tried to punch through your sister’s door screaming that you were going to kill her.’ Ultimately, the only person he ends up hurting is himself, which I think is what vindicates him in the end.”
