PHOTO CALL: Amber Tamblyn, Nick Gehlfuss, Alicia Witt and Shawn Hatosy Have reasons to be pretty at The Geffen Playhouse

The Geffen Playhouse continues its ongoing presentations of works by Neil LaBute with the dark comedy Reasons to Be Pretty, which officially opened Aug. 6 following previews that began July 29.

Helmed by artistic director Randall Arney, the cast features Nick Gehlfuss ("Shameless," "The Newsroom"), Shawn Hatosy ("Southland," "Reckless"), Amber Tamblyn ("Joan of Arcadia," "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants") and Alicia Witt ("Justified," "88 Minutes").

"In Reasons to Be Pretty, LaBute takes on our ongoing fixation with beauty and one man’s inability to say the right thing – ever," press notes state. "When Greg makes an innocuous, off-handed remark about his girlfriend Steph, it triggers a battle by which their relationship will forever be defined."

Here's a look at the production:
