About This Show

Felix Humble, a Cambridge astro-physicist, returns home to his bee-keeping father’s funeral, only to discover his difficult and domineering mother, Flora, in the arms of another man. As Felix struggles to find his balance in the midst of familial chaos, what emerges is a touching, funny and entertaining dysfunctional family portrait. Manhattan Theatre Club presents the American premiere of Humble Boy, a new play by Charlotte Jones, directed by John Caird. The production features Blair Brown, Jared Harris, Paul Hecht, Mary Beth Hurt, Bernie McIrney, and Ana Reeder.

Student tickets are $20 and are on sale the day of the performance (based on availability) up to one hour before showtime. Limit 4 tickets per student with valid ID.
