Review from Weezelicus Rex

I have loved everything I have seen at the SF Playhouse prior to this play, but this one was a bit of a dud. I didn't think it was actors' faults, but the characters were just not that compelling. They reminded me of friends who try your patience...continued

Review from James

The play was excellent, and the players were exceptionally good. Greg was superb, deeply engaging, utterly believable. The other characters were nearly as good, although the character of Kent was perhaps a bit too broad; the actor was convincing,...continued

Review from Mark Greenside

Excellent production. Saw it several years ago in NY and the play and the acting in SF hold up nicely. I do recall more humor--more laughs in the NY version--and more pathos/heart from Stephanie, not just anger and outrage. Pleasure to see it...continued

Once again, another great show by the SF playhouse. The set, actors, lights, and crew were all amazing and the show itself was presented so well. A must see!

Review from Fernanda Bueno

a LOT of foul language, screaming, fighting, and sexual references that just made everybody uncomfortable. It was also very depressing and crude. One character spends the first 10 minutes of the show or so just yelling the F word. I was...continued

Review from Ian Walter Ring

I gave it four stars because of the beautiful location and the ambiance. The acting was good, I laughed a lot and had a pretty good time.

The only BAD thing was how short the play was. It felt short and open ended. Now with that said this was...continued

Review from Saul Rockman

Continuing their selection of edgy plays, SF Playhouse has an engaging winner in "reasons to be pretty." Cast was admirable, especially in the highly emotional arguments, and the ongoing tension between the two leads was well executed. While the...continued

Review from Ed

Good Seating in good venue. Great acting by each performer, true to characters portrayed.

Play/script was awful. Taking great pains to expose the raw 'macho-male' and 'hysterical-female' characteristics, the play is too narrowly focused on...continued

I attend the theater in San Francisco at least once per month. This play was the worst I have seen in some time.. The opening scene with the argument consisted of screaming and shouting and profanities that detracted from the quality. And it did...continued
