Our Broadway reviewer saw The Humans when it ran in New York City. Here's what she thought:
"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, with the eldest daughter taking on the burden of becoming the next caretaker, her emotional trauma heightened by a bowel dysfunction. Meanwhile the younger daughter who has felt free as a bird now has to realize that she must fend for herself as she settles into her new nest..
The Humans 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, which begs the question how will the next generation take care of themselves, and it reminds us to take care of each other."
