This is a ONE NIGHT ONLY event and seating is very limited!
This one night-only event will feature Neil LaBute performing a selected reading from his newest work. Profiles will also present a reading from LaBute's acclaimed 2008 comedy-drama Reasons to Be Pretty, featuring Profiles ensemble members Darrell W. Cox and Somer Benson. Other highlights include a reading of LaBute's one-man show Wrecks by Steppenwolf ensemble member Robert Breuler. The evening will conclude with an audience talkback to discuss the playwright's work.
Profiles will open its 2009-2010 season with one of Mr. LaBute's newest works, title to be announced soon. The theatre began its relationship with Neil LaBute in 2006 with the Midwest premiere of autobahn, followed by their long-running hit, Fat Pig. In 2007, Profiles devoted an entire season to the works of LaBute that included the Midwest premieres of In a Dark Dark House, Some Girl(s), This is How it Goes, and a collection of short works entitled Things We Said Today.
To celebrate the Profiles 20th Anniversary Season, each ticket purchased for An Evening with Neil LaBute: Live and In-Person will include a complimentary ticket to Profiles' next production, the Midwest premiere of Great Falls by Lee Blessing.
