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

Compact high intensity play. Full of great ideas. Reminded me of the quality of drama that one used to find on TV during the Golden Age of Television writing; when Rod Serling was writing for television. You will rarely have an opportunity to see such skilled actors up front and close.
