The Office Star Jenna Fischer Talks About Transcending Pam at the Reasons to Be Happy Meet-and-Greet logo

Fischer’s costars as well as playwright/director Neil LaBute also share their thoughts about the production.

Jenna Fischer (The Office), Leslie Bibb (GCB), Josh Hamilton (Dead Accounts), Frederick Weller (Still Life), and playwright/director Neil LaBute met the press at a meet-and-greet event at the Reasons to Be Happy rehearsal studio on Tuesday, May 7.

The cast and creatives of the MCC Theater production took time to speak to TheaterMania about creating a rare theatrical sequel (Reasons to Be Happy is a companion piece to LaBute’s Broadway hit Reasons to Be Pretty), directing one’s own play, and in the case of Fischer, playing a character who goes beyond the quiet reservedness and pastel cardigans of The Office’s Pam.
