Indulgent, Derivative, Ungodly, Great singing (by most), Banal

See it if u want to see some young, gifted singers giving their all in an otherwise ridiculous, pointless, trite, unoriginal "origin story" of Man.

Don't see it if you are expecting an inventive parody of religion, humanity, the modern workplace... or anything. Read more

Cliched, Funny, Quirky, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy light musicals performed by a young cast. Great voices and strong choreography bring this take on major religious characters alive

Don't see it if You are offended by making light of religious figures or you expect to hear Busey sing - he’s there and acts but has a restrained role.

New York Stage Review
October 21st, 2019

2/5 Stars "Though 'Only Human' has been promoted as a vehicle for veteran screen star Gary Busey, it's more accurately the vanity project of a pop aspirant named Mike Squillante."
