Being described as “regular” isn’t exactly the terminology that most of us aspire to hear in regards to our physical appearance. Certainly, “hideous” or “ugly” would be a whole lot worse, but hearing oneself described with the word “regular” seems to imply being nothing special. In playwright Neil LaBute’s Reasons to be Pretty, we see the drama that erupts between a couple after this mundane little word slips out. LaBute’s past works — including The Shape of Things and Fat Pig — have explored society’s obsession with how we look and so does this production. The show features several characters, each of whom are struggling to keep a relationship afloat and find comfort in their own skin. Pessimistic toward the idea of ever-lasting love, this one reminds us that it’s not always what’s on the inside that counts. (Anita Overcash)
