The adaptation of the Broadway musical “Dear Evan Hansen” for the big screen gave director Stephen Chbosky the opportunity to interpret some of the show’s themes in a new visual way.

In this footage, main character Evan Hansen (Ben Platt) struggles with anxiety on his first day of school. He sings one of the show’s iconic songs, “Waving Through a Window,” as he walks the halls. But the sequence is not choreographed or performed like a traditional musical.

“What’s distinct about the scene,” Chbosky said, “is that if you look at what’s really going on, even though he’s singing, what the singing right now represents is a thought in his head.” Thus, the character does not explode so much in song as he thinks in song.

Rather than “High School Musical” style movements, Chbosky and his team opted for a sort of visual choreography instead. It involved snapping lockers to the beat of the music and a few quick cuts to represent Evan’s feeling of being both overwhelmed and ignored.

“It was really choreographed based on his emotions,” Chbosky said. “It has always been the main thing. Where does he live ? What does it mean? How does this affect him emotionally?
