The Humans Celebrates Thanksgiving With a Norman Rockwell-Style Family Portrait
Stephen Karam's play runs at Broadway's Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre.
To celebrate Thanksgiving, the ensemble of Broadway's Tony-winning play The Humans, posed for a family portrait reminiscent of Norman Rockwell's iconic painting "Freedom from Want."
The Humans follows Erik (played by 2016 Tony winner Reed Birney), who has broken with tradition and brought his Pennsylvania family to celebrate Thanksgiving at his daughter's apartment in lower Manhattan. As darkness falls, family tensions reach a peak, and the heart and horrors of the clan are exposed. The company also includes 2016 Tony winner Jayne Houdyshell, Cassie Beck, Lauren Klein, Arian Moayed, and Sarah Steele.
Joe Mantello directs the production, which features a creative team made up of David Zinn (sets), Sarah Laux (costumes), Justin Townsend (lighting), and Fitz Patton (sound).
The production currently plays at the Schoenfeld Theatre. It had its New York premiere off-Broadway at Roundabout Theatre Company's Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre in 2015.
