HUMANITY’S CHILD
A MUSICAL FOR TODAY!

At the THE PLAYERS THEATRE OFF-BROADWAY
July 29-Sept 1, 2019

 

 

Humanity’s Child: A Musical for Today is literally just that: “for today!”
It emerges from real life and the experiences of young people as they march for their lives (#MarchForOurLives), and especially young women as they navigate the complex world of gender relations in the 21st century.

 

Humanity’s Child presents an all-female cast of young “20-somethings,” aka Humanity’s Cousins, collectively representing their global peers;
and one among them, Humanity’s Child representing every individual
“child of humanity,” young, old, and in-between. 

 

 

 

And, personifying unconditional love, kindness and compassion, 
The Giver offers such qualities to the human kind and suffers when
her gifts go unnoticed. 

 

As the play unfolds, The Giver explains how Humanity’s Child, having grown up
in a loving and protective family, surrounded by “older-wiser” cousins,
has only just begun to be aware of the world around her;
a world of dissonance, discord, and danger.
And how she encounters her fears and anxieties about the future,
struggling to make sense in a terror-filled world.

 

The Giver, with a lot of musical help from Humanity’s Cousins, offers support and guidance as they encourage Humanity’s Child to participate joyfully in life; to connect with others; and, to speak with a common voice for what she knows is right.
