Tickets for the production, which will officially open April 2, will be available by visiting www.telecharge.com or by calling (212) 239-6200.

As previously reported, Marin Ireland, Steven Pasquale and Thomas Sadoski will star in the production, which will be directed by Terry Kinney. Complete casting is expected shortly.

Reasons to be pretty, according to press notes, "confronts America's obsession with physical beauty headlong. In Neil LaBute's new play, Greg's tight-knit social circle is thrown into turmoil when his off-handed remarks about a female co-worker's pretty face (and his girlfriend's lack thereof) get back to said girlfriend. But that's just the beginning."

The work billed as a "comic drama" delves into America's obsession with physical beauty — closing a LaBute trilogy with that same theme that includes The Shape of Things and Fat Pig.

The Off-Broadway reasons to be pretty company featured Piper Perabo, Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski and Pablo Schreiber. The Broadway mounting will feature scenic design by David Gallo, costume design by Sarah J. Holden, lighting design by David Weiner, music and sound design by Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen and fight direction by Manny Siverio.

Producers are Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel, Jam Theatricals, Ted Snowdon and Doug Nevin/Erica Lynn Schwartz in association with MCC Theater.

For LaBute, MCC's resident playwright, this was his sixth work produced by the company. MCC previously presented LaBute's The Mercy Seat, The Distance From Here, Fat Pig, Some Girl(s) and In a Dark Dark House. MCC also produced a one-night benefit evening of his plays, Autobahn. Other LaBute works include bash: latter-day plays, The Shape of Things, This Is How It Goes and Wrecks and the films "In the Company of Men," "Your Friends and Neighbors," "Nurse Betty," "Possession" and "Wicker Man."

Reasons to be pretty will mark LaBute's Broadway debut.
