To celebrate Thanksgiving, the ensemble of Stephen Karam's Tony Award-winning Best Play, The Humans, posed for a commemorative family portrait in the style of Norman Rockwell's iconic painting, “Freedom from Want.”

The photograph, shot by artist Julieta Cervantes, was unveiled in the Daily News and can be seen below:

The Humans 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,” press notes state. “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.”

Directed by Joe Mantello, the ensemble cast includes Cassie Beck, 2016 Tony Award winner Reed Birney, 2016 Tony Award winner Jayne Houdyshell, Lauren Klein, Arian Moayed, and Sarah Steele.

The Humans is the recipient of four Tony Awards, including Best Play (Author, Stephen Karam), Best Featured Actress in a Play (Jayne Houdyshell), Best Featured Actor in a Play (Reed Birney), and Best Scenic Design of a Play (David Zinn).

The production continues at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre through January 15, 2017.
