A 2009 Tony Award nominee for Best Play, reasons to be pretty takes on our collective obsession with physical beauty. The Geffen Playhouse's production stars Amber Tamblyn (Joan of Arcadia, Two and a Half Men), Nick Gehlfuss (Shameless), Shawn Hatosy (Reckless) and Alicia Witt (Justified). In this savagely comic piece by controversial writer Neil LaBute (In the Company of Men, Your Friends & Neighbors), a working class guy finds his life thrown into disarray when he makes the offhand comment that -- compared to a pretty co-worker -- his girlfriend is just "regular." With dialogue that's intense even for LaBute, reasons to be pretty shines a light on our obsession with physical beauty and how easy it is to be casually cruel. Learn More

Maddie Sternberg is the author of the sexy cartoon strip “Oh My Goddess’, and is committed to proving that her life is great – only a year after her father’s suicide. But things start to get complicated after her Grandmother Esther pops up uninvited at her Venice Beach bungalow with a trunk full of family photos and warm potato latkes. When Maddie falls for a hot messenger guy who happens to be German, her goddess cartoon character can’t take it anymore and starts giving her relationship advice. Things couldn’t get more surreal for Maddie in this darkly comic play about love, sex, heritage and letting go.
