It’s another installment of L.A. Theatre Works as we present Neil LaBute‘s Reasons To Be Happy, the follow up to reasons to be pretty with Jenna Fischer, Thomas Sadoski, Gia Crovatin, and Josh Stamberg, featuring the same characters 3 years later.
Reasons to Be Happy — L.A. Theatre Works follows up its Sept. recording of Neil LaBute’s Reasons to Be Pretty with the West Coast premiere of his fresh, quirky sequel — featuring the same characters 3 years later. LaBute is in the director’s chair again, and Emmy® nominated Jenna Fischer (The Office), Thomas Sadoski (The Newsroom), Gia Crovatin (Neil LaBute’s most recent Good Luck [In Farsi]) and Josh Stamberg (Drop Dead Diva) are back as Steph, Greg, Carly and Kent. The couples have realigned, but the stars are still crossed as these four struggle to find love. LaBute’s gift for contemporary dialogue captures a woman’s directness and a man’s loss for words in this hilarious take on heartbreak and miscommunication.
