Performances of the Tony-nominated play will begin July 29 prior to an official opening Aug. 6 and continue through Aug. 31.
Helmed by artistic director Randall Arney, the cast will feature 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."
LaBute has been previously represented at the Geffen with Fat Pig (2007), Some Girl(s) (2008), Wrecks (2010), The Break of Noon (2011) and Miss Julie (2013).
Tickets and more information are available by calling (310) 208-5454 or visiting geffenplayhouse.com.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
