This sharp-witted dark comedy by Neil LaBute (Reasons to Be Pretty) skewers the American obsession with beauty by telling the story of Tom, a good-looking guy who falls in love with a smart, funny woman who happens to be overweight, and then finds himself severely tested by his judgmental friends -- not to mention his own ego. An Outer Critics Circle Award winner in its successful Off-Broadway debut, this is the first production to be staged in L.A. since a run in 2007. Jonathan Bray, Deidra Edwards, Kirsten Kollender and Nick Stabile star. Learn More

World class acting! Didn't realize until it began that I actually saw this play before at a different venue under a completely different cast / production but this performance took it to another level! The set was basic but brilliant, every thing did what it needed to, the photos gave off an eerie Tennessee Williams-ian quality, perfect for this notion of the "memory play." The aunt and eldest daughter were both impeccably acted and the other cast complimented them delightfully without being too obvious or over acted. I actually shed a couple of tears at the end, "but today, I'm just riffing." Shame that it's only a limited showing but catch one if you can! Bravo!
Quotes & Highlights
Visit playwright Lynn Nottage’s website.
The battle for the heart and mind of 17-year-old Ernestine is waged in a living room in Brooklyn in 1950. The contestants include the lively and glamorous Aunt Lily, Ernestine’s God-fearing father and a mysterious German refugee. As is Ernestine, the country is on the brink of transition. This coming of age tale evokes the poetry of change.
The cast features Mylika Davis, Lara Hughes, Kenyetta Lethridge, Rickie Peete and Marie-Francoise Theodore.
