LaBute’s ‘Reasons’ set for Lyceum

'Pretty' will open in April 2009

The Broadway transfer of Neil LaBute play “Reasons to Be Pretty” has booked the Lyceum Theater for a run that opens in April.

Terry Kinney reprises his helming duties. Design team includes David Gallo (sets), Sarah J. Holden (costumes), David Weiner (lights), and Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen (music and sound).
