Quotes & Highlights
reasons to be pretty was LaBute’s first play to be produced on Broadway, where it was nominated for three Tony Awards, including best play.
Written by Neil LaBute
Directed by Paul Melone
This incendiary drama from Neil LaBute (Fat Pig, The Shape of Things) asks, “How much is ‘pretty’ worth?” Sparked by one man’s offhand remark about his girlfriend’s appearance, reasons to be pretty navigates the crumbling relationships of four young friends as they come to terms with their unfulfilling lives and question the American obsession with physical beauty.
