Mr. LaBute is more relaxed as a playwright than he's ever been.

Ben Brantley, The New York Times

Closed 23 Jun 2013
Reasons to Be Happy is a new play from the award-winning writer of "reasons to be pretty" and a companion piece to his critically-acclaimed play, "reasons to be pretty". Reasons to Be Happy is a funny and poignant new play about the choices and sacrifices we are willing to make in the pursuit of that often elusive ideal: happiness.

The play continues the story of Steph and Greg and their tumultuous relationship, and stars Josh Hamilton as Greg and Jenna Fischer (from the hit TV show The Office) as Steph. Leslie Bibb and Fred Weller provide supporting roles in what The New York Time's Ben Brantley has called a "dynamite cast".
