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
Drawing on her experiences in opera, the irrepressible soprano Julia Migenes invites us to look afresh at the genre she loves, with this irreverent one-woman show. Punctuated with some of the greatest arias in the soprano repertoire, she sketches out the life of an opera singer, with audacious anecdotes from behind the scenes. Aimed at “those who would not go and those who would not go back,” Migenes’ iconoclastic and earthy humor throws open the gates to the world of opera in all its splendor and preposterousness.
