The Humans (Off-Broadway) Reviews

Mr. Karam’s haunting, beautifully realized play is quite possibly the finest we will see all season.
Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
You won’t see a better play this year.
Jeremy Gerard,
FIVE STARS! A seamless ensemble cast of New York’s finest stage actors, expertly conducted by director Joe Mantello
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.

Roundabout Theatre Company presents the New York premiere of The Humans by Pulitzer Prize finalist Stephen Karam (Sons of the Prophet, Speech & Debate). A fresh look at the mysteries of the modern American family, this strikingly witty new play reminds us that we all have our fears, but we don’t have to face them alone. Two-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello (The Last Ship, Roundabout’s Assassins) directs.
