A love story about the impossibility of love, Reasons to Be Pretty introduces us to Greg, who truly adores his girlfriend, Steph. Unfortunately, he also thinks she has a few physical imperfections, and when he casually mentions them, all hell breaks loose. A hopelessly romantic drama about the hopelessness of romance, Reasons to Be Pretty is a gorgeous play. Nominated for both a Tony Award and Drama Desk Award for best play of the year.
*Recommended for ages 18 and up (if you know LaBute's work, you know the language can be rough. Curse words abound. If a hefty dose of salty language will offend, this is most likely NOT a play for you.)
"Mr. LaBute is writing some of the freshest and most illuminating American dialogue to be heard anywhere these days." —NY Times.
