The Humans

Directed by STEVEN WOOLF

Winner of four 2016 Tony Awards, including Best Play. Three generations of the Blake family have gathered in a dingy New York City apartment for Thanksgiving. Everyone’s trying to make the best of it, but life’s little indignities are piling up. With a mixture of pathos and dark humor, Karam’s vivid family portrait is nothing but honest.

World Premiere


Music and Lyrics by WENDY LEIGH WILF
Directed by BILL BERRY

A co-production with Seattle’s 5th Avenue Theatre

“Wow! These guys are talented!”
—American Theatre

Dig this. One of the most highly anticipated new musicals from one of the hottest writing teams on the planet, Beatsville has its world premiere at Asolo Rep. It’s Greenwich Village, 1959 – the world of subterranean coffee shops, goateed artists, turtle-necked poets, and bongo-playing jazzbos. Tragically square busboy Walter Paisley wants nothing more than to be one of the beatniks, but he has no artistic talent whatsoever. When he accidentally kills a cat and hides it in a lump of clay, “Dead Cat” is declared a masterpiece, and Walter a genius. More “sculptures” bring more acclaim – but will the world discover Walter’s secret? From the writers of Galavant, School of Rock and Tangled comes this hip and hilarious new musical, hang onto your berets – we’re headed to Beatsville!
