Quotes & Highlights

  • “The acting is superlative from all four actors. The scenes between Hatosy and Tamblyn are especially electric and absorbing. They have great chemistry … I highly recommend Reasons to Be Pretty. It moved me unlike any other LaBute piece. It is by far one of his very best.” — Broadway World
  • “Proves to be a humane, tenderhearted coming-of-age story.” — Los Angeles Times
  • “Displays a Pinter-like virtuosity with the hidden meanings behind everyday words and mundane conversations. LaBute, more than any other American playwright of his generation, is a master of revealing deep truths buried in seemingly offhand remarks.” — OC Register
  • “This production is excellent. It is fluid, funny and wonderfully well-acted … A joy to watch.” — Life in LA
