I heard some good reviews about this play and am planning to go watch it as I was told it’s hilarious. Reasons to be pretty was originally written by American playwright and screenwriter Neil Labute. It premiered on Broadway in the Spring of 2009 and was successfully revived in London’s West End in 2011.
