About This Show

Nominated for 3 Tony Awards including Best Play!

MCC Theater’s presentation of Neil LaBute’s bristling new comic drama reasons to be pretty transfers to Broadway!

America’s obsession with physical beauty is confronted headlong in this brutal and exhilarating new play. In reasons to be pretty, Greg’s tight-knit social circle is thrown into turmoil when his offhanded remarks about a female coworker’s pretty face (and his girlfriend’s lack thereof) get back to said girlfriend. But that’s just the beginning.

Greg’s best buddy Kent, and Kent’s wife Carly also enter into the picture and the emotional equation becomes exponentially more complicated. As their relationships crumble, the four friends are forced to confront a sea of deceit, infidelity and betrayed trust in their journey to answer that oh-so-American question: How much is pretty worth?

Beginning Monday, June 15, 2009 the show will play Mondays at 8:00 p.m., Tuesdays at 7:00 p.m., Wednesdays at 2:00 & 8:00 p.m., Thursdays and Fridays at 8:00 p.m. and Saturdays at 2:00 & 8:00 p.m.
