Item Description

Famed playwright Neil LaBute (dubbed "American theater's reigning misanthrope") is back again, directing the world premiere of his new play Reasons to be Happy at MCC Theater. You and a guest will get VIP tickets to the Opening night performance and exclusive after-party on Tuesday, June 11th, 2013.

Reasons to Be Happy begins three years after a contentious break-up, with Steph and Greg wondering if they can make a fresh go of it.  Trouble is, she’s married to someone else and he’s just embarked on a relationship with Steph’s best friend, Carly, a single mom whose jealous ex-husband, Kent, has trouble articulating his feelings – navigating the rocky landscape of conflicting agendas and exploding emotions isn’t going to be easy for any of them. Reasons to Be Happy is a funny, surprising, and poignant new play about the choices and sacrifices we are willing to make in the pursuit of that often elusive ideal: happiness.
Reasons to Be Happy is a companion piece to LaBute’s critically-acclaimed award-winning play, Reasons to Be Pretty, first produced at MCC Theater in 2008 before moving to Broadway where it was nominated for three 2009 Tony Awards, including Best Play.

Neil LaBute is the playwright-in-residence of MCC Theater.
