From the creator of the Tony-nominated reasons to be pretty comes its new off-Broadway companion piece, Reasons to Be Happy at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. The world-premiere production by Neil LaBute stars The Office's Jenna Fischer alongside Leslie Bibb (Iron Man, Talladega Nights), Josh Hamilton and Fred Weller. Three years after a contentious breakup, Steph (Fischer) and Greg (Hamilton) are now 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, single mother Carly (Bibb), who has a jealous ex-husband, Kent (Weller). 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

excellent playgoing experience. very effective play treating familiar subject matter in riveting fashion. play is not flawless but don't know if anyone could have written the ending better. superb performances by all-british cast of pros and stars and seamless, unobtrusive direction.

Intelligent, very well acted but somewhat confusing re timezones and who was who

Engrossing performance and acting. One confused sexual compulsive writer, one married man with difficulty coming out, the woman he married in distress. There was some back and forth in terms of time of action which may have been confusing, but didn't really seem to matter much.

Thrilling acting by all 4 performers with special mention for Ben Whishaw. Requires concentration and delivers with intensity.
More Information About The Pride
Oliver, Philip, and Sylvia are caught in a kind of erotic time warp. Their complex love triangle, replete with conflicting loyalties and passions, jumps from 1958 to the present and back in a maelstrom of fantasy, repression and rebellion in this innovative new drama. After taking London by storm last season in an Olivier Award-winning production at the Royal Court, The Pride now makes its American premiere at MCC Theater.
Tony Award-winning director Joe Mantello (Glengarry Glen Ross, Take Me Out) directs this alternately tough and touching look at love and betrayal by Alexi Kaye Campbell (Apologia). Four of Britain's most acclaimed young actors, Hugh Dancy (Adam, Journey's End), Adam James (Last Chance Harvey), Andrea Riseborough (Happy-Go-Lucky) and Ben Whishaw (Bright Star, Brideshead Revisited) will star.
