Reasons To Be Pretty, by Neil LaBute
Do not be afraid to laugh - our darkest moments can be funny!
Friday, June 11, 2010
4.5
I have seen over 100 plays/shows, mostly on Broadway in NYC.
This show is Broadway quality...on the dark edgy side of life.
I love the venue; the Hertz Stage is a nice suprise to my friends, clean (yes I said that), comfortable, friendly ushers and modern.
You can even have a glass of wine and snack while enjoying the show.
I had heard that Neil LaBute, the playwright, had earned three Tony nominations for this show.
So I was curious.
Mr.LaBute writes in "real life",not "soap opera" dialogue.
The actors were so good that I felt like I was spying on four peoples lives.
I wondered, worried, laughed, cried and was even angry - all in 2 hours.
The show is about four people in blue collar jobs that are learning their boundaries in life: what is okay to say or do in a relationship and what the consequences can be.
You will come out of the show with opinions about each character's lives.
Do not be afraid to laugh - our darkest moments can be funny!
