Bobby Canavale and Steven Weber are the latest actors scheduled to host talkback sessions following performances of the Tony-nominated Neil LaBute play reasons to be pretty.

Cannavale will moderate the discussion following the May 24 3 PM performance at the Lyceum Theatre; Weber will host the May 25 at 8 PM talkback.

The post-show conversation will feature the entire four-person cast and will be offered free of charge to anyone purchasing a ticket to that performance.

Cannavale recently received a Drama League nomination for his performance in the stageFARM production of The Gingerbread House. Weber is currently back on Broadway in The Philanthropist.

Marin Ireland, Steven Pasquale, Piper Perabo and Thomas Sadoski comprise the Pretty cast. The play, according to the producers, "confronts America's obsession with physical beauty headlong. In Neil LaBute's new play, Greg's (Sadoski) 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 (Ireland). But that's just the beginning."



The Lyceum Theatre is located in Manhattan at 149 West 45th Street. Tickets are available by visiting www.telecharge.com or by calling (212) 239-6200.
