Head on over to your preferred ticketing Realtor fast, because ticket prices for The Humans are about to skyrocket. Last year’s Tony Award–winner for Best Play will end its run at the Schoenfeld Theater on January 15, a spokesperson confirmed to the New York Times. The Stephen Karam–penned play, which our critic Jesse Green called “rackingly funny even as it pummels the heart and scares the bejesus out of you,” chronicles a dysfunctional family that comes together for Thanksgiving dinner in Manhattan. The closure will make room for a new musical, Come From Away, which is scheduled to open on February 18. Hey, it’s only human to move on to different things.

Update: While The Humans’ time at the Schoenfeld is coming to an end, the acclaimed play isn’t necessarily done with the New York theater scene. A spokesperson clarifies: “The Humans will continue at the Schoenfeld through January 15. This is a play that has had wildly successful runs at three different New York theatres over the past year. We’ll see what happens next.”
