Reasons to be Happy to Return to the Theater

It helps to have "reasons to be pretty" fresh on the brain when you enter the theater to see "reasons to be happy", but it's not totally necessary. (I went in to the play not realizing it was a sequel.) The cast is very good, but the standout, surprisingly, is Leslie Bibb, who plays a character who's mostly nice and sincere, and those are usually the dullest on stage. She is a unique creation for playwright Neil LaBute: uncynical, kind, and worthy of love.
