Legendary entertainers Kenan and Kel made theatrical history when they broke down the fourth wall, and then, to the consternation of the set designer, broke down the second and third walls as well.

Trustus, which was named Best Local Theater Company of 2010 by the Free Times, is a 25-year-old theater company that stages innovative, contemporary plays fresh off New York’s stages. Reasons to Be Pretty is one of the latest works from writer, film director, and tragicomedy master Neil LaBute, whose filmography includes Nurse Betty and In the Company of Men. Reasons to Be Pretty is the final installment of LaBute’s trilogy of plays dealing with beauty and physical appearance. When Greg mentions that his girlfriend Steph has a few physical imperfections, she erupts with rage, causing him to ponder society’s emphasis on looks, love, and lacy mittens.

Watching this harsh coming-of-age story come to life on Trustus’ stage is an experience sweetened by the theater’s complimentary popcorn and cash bar. Trustus began in a second-floor space that seated 50 people, but it now occupies a full-fledged theater with comfortable seats, as well as rehearsal space, a black box theater, a shop, and a closet for rabbits.

Tickets are subject to availability.


Although reviews are still growing for Trustus Theatre, the Free Times named it the Best Local Theater Company. More than 1,800 Facebookers are fans of the company.
