* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Though the end of the play ultimately reveals Brett to be a jerk who was never intending to do anything nice for Evan, that doesn't change the fact that a ''huge'' chunk of the play is spent on his genuinely heartfelt romance with Kendra. We get his inner thoughts in song several times (heck, his relationship with Kendra is easily the focus of more songs than Evan's plotline is) and there's not a hint of malice in them.

--> '''Evan (first verse):''' Wait till Mom goes to sleep, sneak the license from the wallet in her purse, and make a colored Xerox, laminate it. Then put the license, back in the wallet in her purse. Then find the dress she wore in the picture on the license that I copied and I laminated. Wear the dress! Get a wig, show the licences, buy the tickets. What could go wrong?...
