Reasons to Be Pretty

Neil LaBute’s intense play was originally produced Off-Broadway by MCC Theater in 2008 and went on to Broadway in 2009, where it received three Tony Award nominations for its terrifying display of a woman scorned by her boyfriend’s hurtful comment—describing her face as regular looking. Tickets are $25, students $12. The show runs through January 27.
