D.C. theater audiences are used to post-Broadway, big-budget musicals rolling through town but not so much the straight play. That’s why it’s such a special treat to have Stephen Karam’s 2016 Tony Award-winning play The Humans make a stop at the Kennedy Center. Featuring some theater heavy hitters—Daisy Eagan, Richard Thomas, and Pamela Reed—in the touring company cast along with the renowned direction of Joe Mantello, who was nominated for the 2016 Tony for his direction of The Humans, this production is seriously legit. It’s also the perfect post-holiday season play as it deals with a family that comes together to celebrate Thanksgiving and finds that their personal anxieties give way to physical fear and foolishness as the festive holiday gets creepy at nightfall.
