If a woman found out her boyfriend had been describing her looks as "regular," what would happen? Reasons to Be Pretty tackles this prickly and relatable topic with all the dark humor and controversial characters Neil LaBute (In the Company of Men, Your Friends & Neighbors) is known for. This provocative, Tony-nominated play about four young friends who're dissatisfied with their dead-end jobs and fizzling romances was described during its Broadway run as "a love story about the impossibility of love." An interesting look at our obsession with physical appearance, this Hovey Players production of Reasons to Be Pretty can be seen at Abbott Memorial Theater.
