The Way We Get By is billed as a story about love and lust "and the whole damn thing." According to Second Stage, "This two-character play will star Seyfried and Sadoski as Beth and Doug: two people who have no problems getting dates with their partners of choice. What they do have, however, is a very awkward encounter after spending one hot night together following a drunken wedding reception they attend. They wake up to a blurry morning where the rules of attraction, sex and society are waiting for them before their first cup of coffee, leading them to ponder how much they really know about each other and how much they really care about what other people think."

Sadoski was Tony-nominated for his performance in the Broadway premiere of LaBute's Reasons to Be Pretty.

The production will feature set design by Neil Patel, costume design by Emily Rebholz, lighting design by Matthew Frey and sound design by Jill BC Du Boff. Casting by Telsey + Co., Will Cantler.

LaBute's plays include Reasons to Be Pretty, Reasons to Be Happy, The Shape of Things, The Break of Noon, Fat Pig, The Money Shot and The Mercy Seat, among others.
