From the creator of the Tony-nominated reasons to be pretty comes the Midwest premiere of its off-Broadway companion piece, Reasons to Be Happy at Profiles Theatre. Three years after a contentious breakup, Steph and Greg now find themselves wondering if they should try again -- the only problem is that she's now married to someone else and he's just started dating her best friend, a single mother with a jealous ex-husband. Resident artist Neil LaBute's newest work is a funny, surprising and poignant reflection on the sacrifices we're willing to make in the pursuit of happiness. Learn More

Thought-provoking, effective, personal. Really cared about the characters. And how about those two guys doing the quick changes? They put a very professional finish on an already crisp, clear (yet sometimes uncomfortable - due to the subject matter/situations) production. Bottom line: the script itself is high-caliber. Well worth a look.
Quotes & Highlights
“Chad Beckim’s moving, thoughtful, strongly acted, 90-minute drama is now in its Midwest premiere at Profiles Theatre under the finely tuned direction of Matt Hawkins.

“This ninety-minute pressure cooker is sure to move audiences. Director Matt Hawkins’ cast appears to have spent a lot of time with these characters, resulting in a strong sense of emotional authenticity.” -New City
“Chad Beckham’s play After is a well researched, fascinating, carefully crafted piece of theater and he masterfully weaves in and out of this emotional pathos as we are introduced to characters that test Monty’s resolve.” —Showbiz Chicago
