CA – An Evening with Being Human

Being Human

The cast of Being Human appears on Tuesday, January 8, 2013 at 7:00 pm at the Paley Center in Los Angeles, CA.

In Person

Sam Witwer, “Aidan”
Meaghan Rath, “Sally”
Sam Huntington, “Josh”
Kristen Hager, “Nora”
Anna Fricke, Executive Producer/Showrunner

Syfy’s hit reimagining of the popular British series follows three twenty-something Bostonians as they navigate the demands of contemporary urban life, which in their case is a bit harder due to certain existential complications: one’s a ghost, one’s a vampire, and one’s a werewolf. And you thought you had angst! The metaphorical possibilities are endless, and the series has won praise for explicating the humanity of its characters, in addition to their preternatural qualities. Among its fans is the Atlantic’s Alyssa Rosenberg, who lauds the series as a “sharp, charming twist on the supernatural that also deftly explores that most important of twenty-something relationships, being roommates.” The new season of Being Human premieres Monday, January 14 at 9:00 pm ET/PT on Syfy.

Tickets available here ($10 for members, $15 for non-members)
