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

This one man show is well presented, if you can get past the [cough, cough] real cigarette [cough, cough] smoking by the actor.

This is Neil LaBute's adaptation of a classical Greek play, updated to the present and kept flowing for the entire hour and ten minutes or so. If I didn't have smoke aversion and nowhere to escape once the show had begun, I would have rated it higher.
