It’s the best play of the year.” It’s “hilarious, heartbreaking and unforgettable — the best play of the year,” says Entertainment Weekly.
The Chicago Tribune cheers, “Few writers of Stephen Karam’s generation have achieved anything like ‘The Humans.’ Inestimably kind, rich and beautiful; it’s the best play of the year, and the best new play in years.” It’s “a play of uncommon strengths: fresh, funny, piercing and perceptive” (Daily News). The Hollywood Reporter calls it “infectiously joyful, unimpeachably honest, and tremendously moving — the best play of the year,” and Peter Marks of The Washington Post writes, “It’s the best play of the year. This is what Broadway needs more of: extraordinary ‘Humans.’”
