BWW Review: THE HUMANS Brings Horror and Recognition to the Ahmanson Photo BWW Review: THE HUMANS Brings Horror and Recognition to the Ahmanson
by Don Grigware - Jun 25, 2018

Humans fear monsters, and monsters we are told are even more scared of humans. Monsters are not real but horror really does lie in the human experience. Ask the Blakes. Losing one's job, facing illness, the worst being dementia, is a part of their lives and many others in the decaying/disappearing American middle class. In Stephen Karam's riveting play, The Humans, the Blake family gather for Thanksgiving in daughter Brigid's latest dwelling, a Chinatown New York apartment, that she shares with boyfriend Richard, some year since the devastation of September 2001 The parents and grandmother have made the long trek from Scranton, Pennsylvania; they love their children that much and of course like to meddle in their lives. Currently onstage at the Ahmanson, the Tony winning play with the original Broadway cast and directed by Joe Mantello, engages our thought processes, and is simultaneously relatable and entertaining.
