What would happen if a woman caught her boyfriend describing her level of beauty as "regular." Reasons to Be Pretty tackles this prickly topic with all the dark humor and controversial characters Neil LaBute (In the Company of Men, Your Friends & Neighbors) is known for. TV stars Amber Tamblyn (Joan of Arcadia, Two and a Half Men), Nick Gehlfuss (Shameless), Shawn Hatosy (Reckless) and Alicia Witt (Justified) make up the cast of this provocative, Tony-nominated play about four young friends who're dissatisfied with their dead-end jobs and fizzling romances.
