CRITICS' PICK "A haunting, beautifully realized play, quite possibly the finest we will see all season... Blisteringly funny and altogether wonderful." —Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
"Absolutely, relentlessly gripping... Rackingly funny even as it pummels the heart and scares the bejesus out of you." —Jesse Green, New York
CRITICS' PICK, FIVE STARS "Gorgeous. Stephen Karam boldly forces us into a world beyond the familiar." —Adam Feldman, Time Out New York
Breaking with tradition, Erik Blake has brought his Pennsylvania family to celebrate Thanksgiving at his daughter’s apartment in lower Manhattan. As darkness falls outside the ramshackle pre-war duplex, eerie things start to go bump in the night. Soon, family tensions reach a boiling point… and the hilarity, heart and horrors of the Blake clan are exposed.
February 16, 2016: Review: ‘The Humans’ Depicts a Family, and a Country, Under Pressure —NY Times Critics' Pick
"The finest new play of the Broadway season so far — by a long shot — Mr. Karam’s drama has been beautifully transferred from Off Broadway, where it was presented by the Roundabout Theater Company last fall, with the production’s prized virtues intact: a peerless cast, whose members all inhabit their characters as if they’ve been living in their itchy skins forever; direction from Joe Mantello that stealthily navigates the play’s delicate shifts, from witty domestic comedy to painful conflict, and from there to something resembling a goose-pimply chiller; and a set, designed by David Zinn, that perfectly captures the unsettled atmosphere the writing so deftly establishes."
