About the Show

"A beautiful and deeply moving play...[a] gorgeous production -- which I will never forget" - Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

"The best play of the year. To miss it would be a huge mistake." - NPR

"Stephen Karam’s justly acclaimed play “The Humans” tells an emblematic story about this broad stratum of our society more persuasively than many a demographic chart or statistical analysis." - The Seattle Times

"The performances and arcs in the piece are stunning" - Broadway World

Stephen Karam’s The Humans is an uproarious, hopeful, and heartbreaking play that takes place over the course of a family dinner on Thanksgiving. Breaking with tradition, Erik Blake has brought his Pennsylvania family to celebrate and give thanks at his daughter’s apartment in Lower Manhattan. As darkness falls outside the ramshackle pre-war duplex and eerie things start to go bump in the night, the Blake clan’s deepest fears and greatest follies are laid bare. Our modern age of anxiety is keenly observed, with humor and compassion, in this new American classic that won the 2016 Tony Award® for Best Play.
Cast including: Richard Thomas as Erik, Pamela Reed as Deirdre, Tony winner Daisy Eagan as Brigid, Lauren Klein as Momo, Therese Plaehn as Aimee, and Luis Vega as Richard.

ASL/Open Captioned performance will take place on Tuesday, March 20. Purchase tickets here.

The Humans is recommended for children ages 15 and older.
