'REASONS TO BE PRETTY' To Close On Broadway 6/14
The producers of Neil LaBute's Reasons To Be Pretty, have announced the production will end its Broadway run at the Lyceum Theatre on June 14th. A show spokesperson reported the news, a full announcement will be made shortly.
Marin Ireland, Steven Pasquale, Piper Perabo and Thomas Sadoski star in the four-person play, directed by Terry Kinney. This year, Reasons To Be Pretty was nominated for 3 Tony Awards, including Best Play, 2 Outer Critics Circle Awards, including Outstanding New Broadway Play, 3 Drama League Awards, including Distinguished Production of a Play and 4 Drama Desk Awards,
including Outstanding Play.
Reasons To Be Pretty confronts America's obsession with physical beauty headlong. In Neil LaBute's new play, Greg's (Sadoski) tight-knit social circle is thrown into turmoil when his off-handed remarks about a female co-worker's pretty face (and his girlfriend's lack thereof) get back to said
girlfriend (Ireland). But that's just the beginning.
This play marks the sixth collaboration between MCC Theater and LaBute, who is MCC's Resident Playwright. Reasons To Be Pretty puts a final, ferocious cap on a trilogy of plays that began with The Shape of Things and Fat Pig. Performances of the four-character play began Off Broadway at the Lucille Lortel Theatre on May 14, 2008 and the critically acclaimed production
continued through July 5, 2008.
Reasons To Be Pretty is produced on Broadway by Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel, MCC Theater, Gary Goddard Entertainment, Ted Snowdon, Doug Nevin/Erica Lynn Schwartz, Ronald Frankel/Bat-Barry Productions, Kathleen Seidel, Kelpie Arts, LLC, Jam Theatricals, Rachel Helson/Heather Provost, Scott M. Delman, in association with MCC Theater (Robert LuPone, Bernard Telsey, Artistic Directors; William Cantler, Associate Artistic Director; Blake West, Executive Director).
