About the Show

This new musical of biblical proportions features Gary Busey as…God. (Note: Wednesdays Gary will not perform. Instead, the role of God will be played by Charles West.)

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.

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

Fluffy, Entertaining, Great singing, Banal, Ambitious

See it if You're curious to see Gary Busey in a musical. You want a satire of Heaven inspired by The Office. You want a cast with great voices.

Don't see it if You want sharp satire:more cute than skewering.You want memorable music:sung well tho forgettable. You want GB in a star role:only featured.

Insipid, Quirky, Raunchy, Cliched, Banal

See it if Aside from a couple of really good voices there is NO reason to see this unless of course you’re a Gary Busey fan.

Don't see it if If you can avoid it there are so many worthwhile productions to support.

Ambitious, Funny, Disappointing

Silly, High concept, Ambitious

Don't see it if If you want to see it go right away. It is closing early. Needs work but is I'm glad I saw it. Read more

"'Only Human,' Starring Gary Busey as the Almighty, Will Make You Doubt the Existence of God: They want you to think this is like 'The Office,' but 'The Office' is better."

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."
