Reasons to Be Pretty

July 29 - August 19, 2014
Gil Cates Theater

Written by Neil LaBute
Directed by Randall Arney
Featuring Nick Gehlfuss, Shawn Hatosy, Amber Tamblyn & Alicia Witt

“Outstanding cast!"
"Moved me unlike any other LaBute piece ... by far one of his very best!” - Broadway World

"A great play!" - KROQ

“A humane, tenderhearted coming-of-age-story ... vivid ... engaging ... meticulously crafted performances … Mamet-like dialogue.” - Los Angeles Times

In Reasons to Be Pretty, Playwright Neil LaBute takes on our ongoing fixation with beauty and one man’s inability to say the right thing – ever. When Greg makes an innocuous, off-handed remark about his girlfriend Steph, it triggers a battle by which their relationship will forever be defined. Tony nominated for Best Play, Reasons to Be Pretty continues a series that includes The Shape of Things, Fat Pig (a previous Geffen Playhouse hit) and Reasons to Be Happy.
