News from O & M Co.

TICKETS ON SALE NOW FOR
THE BROADWAY PRODUCTION OF
STEPHEN KARAM’S
“THE HUMANS”

THE BEST REVIEWED NEW PLAY OF THE YEAR
WILL BEGIN PERFORMANCES AT
THE HELEN HAYES THEATRE
SATURDAY, JANUARY 23, 2016

OPENING NIGHT SET FOR THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 18

Tickets go on sale today for the Broadway production of Stephen Karam’s much-raved-about new play, The Humans, recently named “The Best Play of the Year” by New York Magazine.   Directed by Tony Award® winner Joe Mantello and featuring its entire acclaimed current Off-Broadway cast, The Humans will begin performances at Broadway’s Helen Hayes Theatre (240 West 44th Street) on Saturday, January 23, 2016, and open officially on Thursday, February 18.  Tickets are available via Telecharge.com or by calling (212) 239-6200 / (800) 447-7400
The ensemble cast, all of whom are featured in the current smash-hit Off-Broadway production at Roundabout Theatre Company(Todd Haimes Artistic Director), includes Cassie Beck (Aimee), Reed Birney (Erik), Jayne Houdyshell (Deirdre) Lauren Klein(Fiona “Momo” Blake), Arian Moayed (Richard) and Sarah Steele (Brigid).

The angst, anguish and amity of the American middle class are first coaxed – then shoved – into the light in this uproarious, hopeful, and heart-breaking play that takes place over the course of a family dinner on Thanksgiving.  Breaking with tradition, Erik Blake (Birney) 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.
