5.0 star rating Jacob Jones from Chicago, Illinois


This was a wonderfully performed show. Acting was solid all the way around. The play is beautifully written, and it is relatable. You could connect with the characters, and it felt like real life. It was a solid day at the theater, and one of the better shows I have had the pleasure of seeing.

I had read the script before seeing this magnificent play at the Rep. the production is absolutely impeccable — funny, bleak, complex, subtle — it was a thorough-going Broadway theatre experience. Thrilling. A great aesthetic experience. In response to your questions: I would not take very elderly people to this show, for thematic reasons.

Riveting material. The script included all areas of struggle and triumph no matter the generation, gender, or socio-economic status. It hit me with a full scale of emotions. The stage setting used every inch of a three dimensional platform - brilliant. Despite a large person in front of me, I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. The play makes for great conversation after.

There is a good reason why this stunning drama won the Tony Award for Best Play. It's a work of art. Subtle, deeply emotional and hilarious at the same time, it also asks an audience to think, something sorely lacking in drama today. Seattle is indeed a lucky city to be hosting the kick off for the national tour. It's a don't miss for any theatre goer who cares about humanity and the future of theatrical literature.

1.0 star rating Mark V from Seattle, Washington


During this holiday season, if you find yourself laughing and enjoying time with friends and family to the extent that you need a break, then by all means go see this bleak, dreary and pointlessly depressing play that rambles aimlessly through a Thanksgiving dinner with a remarkably dysfunctional family. There is no plot and no real ending. The stage just mercifully goes dark and your suffering ends. I have no idea why this play won any awards.

I went to see The Humans expecting excellent Broadway, star quality drama. There was some fine acting, lots of well executed stage business, but no drama whatsoever. Utterly boring. My Thanksgiving dinner with my family was more exciting.

Not very entertaining. Left Broadway theater feeling "down" after watching this sad depiction of a modern day family. If you're looking for an upbeat production, this is NOT the performance for you. Save your money. Actors are very good, but content is depressing. Certainly hope that this does not depict the average american family.

What we thought

INTRIGUING Insightful encouraging

Highlights the ongoing issues of depression, indulgence, aging and the distressing notion that America's next generation is flooded with debt before they even begin

As the family prepares for a Thanksgiving dinner, served on paper plates, we understand that family is everything. The family dynamics are well studied by playwright Stephen Karam in this intriguing and insightful production.
