The Humans in Broadway THE HUMANS
Curious Theatre Company
11/3-12/22/2018
The most lauded play of the 2016 Broadway season, Stephen Karam’s The Humans is an uproarious, hopeful, and heartbreaking play that takes place over the course of a family dinner on Thanksgiving. Breaking with tradition, Erik Blake has brought his Pennsylvania family to celebrate and give thanks at his daughter’s apartment in Lower Manhattan. As darkness falls outside the ramshackle pre-war duplex and eerie things start to go bump in the night, the Blake clan’s deepest fears and greatest follies are laid bare. Our modern age of anxiety is keenly observed with humor and compassion in this new American classic that won the 2016 Tony Award for Best Play.

Aurora Fox Arts Center
11/23-12/23/2018
SECOND CITY’S, TWIST YOUR DICKENS | MAINSTAGE Nov 23-Dec 23 By Peter Gwinn and Bobby Mort A madcap send-up of the holiday classic, “Twist Your Dickens” finds Scrooge, Tiny Tim and those know-it-all ghosts hopelessly mixed up in zany holiday sketches. This adult comedy is never the same show twice and was deemed by the Chicago Sun-Times as a "fresh and bountiful feast of funny." Second City alums and veteran Colbert Report writers Peter Gwinn and Bobby Mort dreamt up this irreverently funny new take on “A Christmas Carol.” Content Advisory: Adult language
