SO GLAD I WENT
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.

THE HUMANS IS IMPECCABLE
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.

WORK OF ART
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.

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.

BLEAK AND DEPRESSING
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.
