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

A dark and stormy night finds Betty and Bobby packing up a cabin in Neil Labute’s In a Forest, Dark and Deep. . Joe Jahraus’ direction in this newly acquired bigger addition – the old National Pastime Theatre, now Profiles’ Main Stage – doesn’t miss a beat, even with the additional breadth. He treats the characters as old friends, finding their way in extraordinary circumstances. Natasha Lowe and Darrell W. Cox - sister and brother - backslide into the same archetypes most siblings do - at once insulting each other but in the next moment sharing a nostalgic chuckle. Labute’s recognizable dialogue - along with Thad Hallstein’s set, Jeffrey Levin’s sound and John Kohn’s lighting– add just the right amount of spell. When the play ends you realize you’ve been taken on a ride and back again. Trust me you’ll be talking about these characters for weeks to come. Definitely go see it.

“LaBute writes about the elusiveness of truth and the deceptiveness of appearances, taking the audience on a theatrical rollercoaster ride!” — The Guardian
