The production will run July 29-Aug. 31 in the Gil Cates Theater. Creative team and casting will be announced at a later date.
The drama, according to press notes, is described as such: "Greg’s tight-knit social circle is thrown into turmoil when his seemingly innocuous remarks about a female coworker’s pretty face (and his girlfriend’s lack thereof) sets of a firestorm of self-deceit, treachery and their own willingness to change."
Tony-nominated in 2009 for Best Play, Reasons to be Pretty is part of a series that began with The Shape of Things and Fat Pig (seen at the Geffen in 2006).
The Birthday Party was scheduled to begin previews Feb. 4 prior to an official opening Feb. 12.
"Postponing the run will give us the opportunity to present the best production of The Birthday Party to our audiences who have come to expect the highest quality from the Geffen," artistic director Randall Arney said in a previous statement.
